Entrance to the Annalakshmi restaurant in Johor Bahru

The Annalakshmi is a vegetarian, Indian restaurant that offers good food in an inviting environment with friendly service. Annalakshmi restaurants exist in several other cities including Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Chennai. They offer a interesting policy of letting you decide what to pay.

The restaurant is located in historic Johor Bahru near many other attractions: Salahuddin Bakery, Masjid India Mosque, Bangunan Sultan Ibrahim, Sri Raja Mariamman Temple, Johor Bahru Old Chinese Temple, Tiong Hua Chinese Heritage Museum, Sikh Gurdwara Sahib and a pleasant stroll from City Square Mall.

Annalakshmi is the culinary arts section of Temple of Fine Arts (TFA), an artistic and cultural organization dedicated to serving the society through arts, music and dance. This heritage is seen in the very nice decor.

The buffet offers about 8 dishes along with rice and papadum (crispy bread). Several of the dishes seem to be permanent with several rotating. They are quite good and several of the dishes I have never seen before.

I have been back probably 10 times; it is quite tasty.

This wood inlay with scenes of lions is quite impressive. The artistic sense is certainly captured here. They also have some very nice paintings on the walls.

  1. Good place but my fave Indian resto in JB is Bharat Curry House off Jalan Ngee Heng highway. Great scrumptious banana leaf. You should check it out sometime! Cheers!
