is a voluntary organization supporting the charitable projects of The
Shiva Shantha Trust (Chennai).
Annalakshmi, where food is not just for the body but also for the soul.
Where - “Athithi Devo
Bhava” - is not a concept but a practice. Started with an ideal of providing
traditional Indian cuisine in an atmosphere of an Indian cultural ambience.
Started in 1986, Annalakshmi, is in Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Penang,
Chennai, Coimbatore, Perth (Western Australia), and many more to come.Everywhere,
all the work is done by Swamiji’s devotees and all are volunteers. No
waiters or waitresses, only ‘Annalakshmies’, any of whom could be a
school teacher, an accountant, a doctor, a lawyer, housewife, a student
or a retiree.
We serve the rich and the famous. We also serve the humble simple souls
by the roadside, silently. Annalakshmi is more than a vegetarian restaurant.
It is a place “Where Vegetarian Dining is a Cultural Experience”. The
work here is done as an Aradhana to the Divine; practicing the concept
of “Karmayoga”. Whenever you dine at Annalakshmi, you are becoming
a divine instrument in wiping the tears of the poor.
Food, being the gift of mother nature, has inspired Swamiji to visualize
the concept of “Eat As You Like And
Pay As You Feel" - in many or our branches. The guest are free
to eat what they like and give us what they feel, there being no fixed
menu price. And that which is given from the heart, is more valuable
for the good purpose it serves.
Apart from our restaurants, we also do outdoor catering to various corporate
companies, social functions, private parties, etc.
