Sri Ananda Bahwan @Tanjung Bunga, Penang

We decided to pay a visit again to Sri Ananda Bahwan at their new outlet in Tanjung Bunga, Penang. This restaurant which serves Indian cuisine  is located directly opposite Paradise Sandy Beach Hotel. This garden style restaurant is very spacious, quiet and more airy compared to the Penang Street outlet that we visited last year.

We are greeted by a traditionally dressed doorman when we entered the restaurant from the back entrance.

Their staff are quick in guiding us to our table. As soon as we are seated, a plate of mixed fruit cocktail is served. For drinks, we had the Mango Lassi, a creamy and smooth yogurt drink.

We ordered a basket of mixed naan as we wanted to try the different varieties. The basket consist of cheese, garlic, chives and plain naan. Prepared fresh, the basket of naan comes with a plate of mint and sweet sauce.

There are so many mouth watering dishes to choose from and after much deliberating among ourselves, we ended up having Chicken Hyberabad, Gobi Manchurian, Masala Chicken and a vegetable dish. The dishes are very flavorsome.

A basket full of papadam is served together with the meal.

After the meal, we treat ourselves to three different types of dessert. The Banaras Son Palpua has a crisp and flaky texture while the Palkoa is garnished with pistachios. And not forgetting the cup of ice cream. All of them are tantalizingly sweet.

There are more dishes that we love to try on our next visit, and the Tandoori is one of them.

The staffs are very attentive and helpful and the place is clean and well maintained. Definitely no hesitation in entertaining friends in this lovely place.
