My wife and I celebrated my birthday at Ananda yesterday evening. The food was wonderful, the staff attentive, and warm, and the setting retreat-like. We had a chance to chat with Binda and learn about the restaurant and his plans. They surprised both me and my wife with a chocolate cake, candle, and quick rendition of happy birthday followed by two glasses of Asti Spumante, a very nice gesture to first time guests. We highly recommend Ananda for a wonderful experience. We will be back many times…
Definitely not your usual Indian restaurant. Upscale and classy. Slightly pricier than local competition but then you are paying for the ambience! Patio seating and the 2 leaved fans remind you of the British raj Era. Had the crab kerala appetizer and the lamb Shahi korma – both were top notch. Naan was fresh and moist. Will absolutely recommend dining here.
They truly do everything right here. The food is delicious, the drinks are wonderful, and the service is friendly and prompt. The only negative is that everything on the menu looks so good, it is really hard to choose!
An amazing dining experience all around! It rivals some of DC’s best Indian restaurants in style, decor, staff and cuisine. So excited to have such a posh restaurant near by. Definitely check this place out!
Had another really great meal & experience at Ananda tonight. First time was an adult evening, this time was family night with our 8 year old. When we asked her, “Would you give it 2 thumbs up, one up and one down, or two down?” she responded with “one thousand thumbs up”. Binda, Karl and the rest of —Ananda staff really know how to make an evening out – for every occasion – a memory. Everything was wonderful —especially loved the watermelon salad and crab appetizer specials! Thank you and best wishes….
Really great dinner experience tonight, food delicious, atmosphere inside and outside perfect, service top notch. Will be back very soon!!
