Have been to Annalakshim's Indian Restaurant twice and enjoyed the experience both times. Large, airy, clean place. The food is delicious vegetarian Indian homestyle cooking. There are staff behind the food dishes, but you serve your own. Plain and savoury rice, parathas (Indian bread), dhal and vegetables. Juice and water, tea, coffee and dessert are also provided. Vegan desserts available... More

This restaurant is located just in front of the nice Elizbeth Quay riverside location which runs not-for-profit. You can eat until you stomach is full and pay as per your heart wishes. Indian authentic foods are delicious.

Nice restaurant in a great location with fantastic views and some outside space. Busy both times we went. No choice, just a thali of veggie curries to enjoy. Orange juice or water to accompany and tea and coffee. Pay whatever you feel is right for you. Wide range of customers. Wish we had one at home. Keep up the good... More

I have been going to Annalakshmi for over 4 years. I love the home style cooking, variety of dishes, the beautiful water views and its like a 5 course meal complete with starters, dessert etc. What I hate are some of their customers who come to this beautiful place of charity and rip them off by paying like $2 to...

Lots of tentative staff. Really awesome long tables to encourage intermingling but also individual tables for the recluses. Staff pass out the food for you with plenty of fruit juice water tea and coffee to go with. If you want more you can return for a second round. The flavour packed a punch, it was delicious and even though I... More

Food is good and filling. Excellent for solo travel and bag packer. Only vegetarians food plus 2 types of rice. Better to sit inside as it's pretty windy outside.

Tonight found myself eating a platter of lovely Indian vegetarian food outside with the twinkling lights of Perth and the Swan River in the background. Thank you TA for alerting me to this establishment, a not-for-profit where you pay what you wish for your meal. Amazing for this tourist, who is certainly experiencing unique aspects of this city! Buffet service,... More

After disembarking from your free cruise at Pier 4, why not head upstairs to the Anna Lakshmi where you can dine on home cooked vegetarian Indian food. Much of the produce is donated, the labour is donated and the prices are a donation from YOU. Proceeds are then also donated. Exceptionally clean, fast and very authentic. Sweets, juice and hot...
