Anna Nagar

Sankranti, Anna Nagar East

We went to Sankranti, a restaurant in Anna Nagar East, that serves Andhra cuisine primarily.

It was a chance visit, since I hadn’t really decided on Sankranti, and it was more on the lines of whichever is open at the time, since we went there around 2.50 PM, while most restaurants close for the afternoon at 3.00 PM.

Boy, I’m now thankful I went here.

We went for a Soup, starter, and 2 meals.

Our order:

Miriyalu Carrot Rasam (The Soup)
Punugulu (The Starter)
2x Bhojanam (The Meals)

Miriyalu Carrot Rasam: This one was an intense and passionate dance performance on our taste buds, with the soup being spicy enough to make a hard core pickle eater cry, while still being irresistibly tasty that I went back to it till it was finished. Loved every sip of it.

Punugulu: Nothing special to mention here, tasted good, though my companion got some pieces which weren’t cooked/fried completely.

Bhojanam: The usual Andhra meal fare: Nothing extraordinary, nothing too bad.


The waiters were quite polite and friendly and paid good attention to us. I’m not sure if this was because we were the only ones left in the restaurant or they’re always like that. We enjoyed their service anyhow.

Ambiance: It was nicely decorated, calm, and pleasant ambiance to have a peaceful, spicy lunch.

Bill: The total amount was Rs. 611 for the two of us, without any service charge being added.


Quantity: 4.5/5
Taste: 3.5/5
Cost/VFM: 4/5
Service: 4/5
Ambiance: 4/5

Overall: 4/5

I would definitely go here again, whenever I feel like having spicy Andhra food.

Lakshmi Narayanan G

A stereotypical IT guy with a typical love for good food and good movies, not so typical love for books, rare love for the theatre arts and an abominable love for such lengthy sentences.

Naturally, with such varied interests, I come out with highly opinionated reviews ranging across categories and mindless blah blah blah.

I'm supposed to be living in Chennai, but I usually live in one of the social networks listed on my profile, since, hey that's so cool yo ;)
