Athithi Devo Bhava

At Sri Ananda Bhavan we believe in the ancient Hindu script “Athithi Devo Bhava” which means that “The guest is equivalent to God”, and we make sure to satisfy every guest that walks through our doors. Our menu is traditional yet diverse. We serve mouth-watering South Indian breakfast throughout the day, traditional Thali (Meals) for lunch and dinner including our special Kalyanasappadu, and Indo Chinese for the adventurous guest. Our exclusive Coffee counter serves authentic South Indian “filter” coffee.

Most of our dishes are suited to the Vegan lifestyle. Please talk to our friendly staff if you want more information.

We don’t just stop with awesome food

Our trained staff will be available to offer you the best service throughout the day. Even though we do not serve food in our garden area yet,we do encourage our guests to step out to take in a breath of fresh air and soak up the sun.

Our fine dining restaurant is located on the Princess Highway, opposite Fountain Gate shopping centre.

Authentic food, great service, filter coffee was a great end to a lovely meal. First time in Melbourne I have been satisfied with the filter coffee. Please maintain the quality. We would like to keep visiting.

The best, authentic south indian food I've had in Australia! Their chaats are so tasty and their filter coffee is amazing. One of the only places that serves it without sugar, just how I like it.
