South Indian om nom noms at Ananthapuram

The new ‘curry mile’ strikes again.

We’ve been at the curry again. Honestly, Whitechapel is seeing some SERIOUS competition.  This time it’s South Indian yumminess hailing from Kerala (ok, ok the type of food is from Kerala. The restaurant is actually on High Street North, in our own sweet East Ham).

All the usual randomness, GREAT food AND recommended by The Spice Scribe!

We stumbled upon it quite by accident when browsing restaurant reviews by the  Spice Scribe. Low and behold this tasty tasty write up we were reading was about a curry joint in EAST HAM! We nearly fell off our chair – not because the place was in East Ham (it is a well known fact that East Ham has delicious curries on offer) but because someone had written about it on the inter webs, and it wasn’t EAST BLAM!!). Anyway, we digress…

Ananthapuram had many things that you would expect of an East Ham indian restaurant – random neon lights, bright colours on the walls, and a high octane bollywood action movie playing on a wide screen TV. If this is not your usual cup of tea, we can promise that none of these things will detract from how good the food is.

Spicy goodness, but the breads really took the crown,

We started with Mini Dosas, and then hit in hard with a Pepper Chicken and a King fish Special with Lemon Rice plus Chapathis and Parrota. Everything was excellent but the bread took the crown. Both Chapathis and Parrota were perfect. Light, fluffy and not oily at all.

If you are not a fan of spicy food, make sure you let the staff know early on. This is traditionally cooked South Indian food and they don’t spare the chilli.

The staff were attentive, and helpful; recommending an excellent dish when we couldn’t decide, and checking in on us regularly to see what else we needed.

All in all, top marks from the East Blammers, AND they deliver!

All in all, we would recommend this place highly. Close to the tube, delicious curry, good beer, good service and definitely friendly on the wallet. What’s not to like. Get yourself down there, quick chop! And if you can’t be bothered to get yourself down there, you can order online and they deliver, so there are no excuses!

You are welcome! 🙂

    I’d love to check out Ananthapuram, but it only has a 2 food hygiene rating of ‘Improvement Necessary ‘.
