Ananda Fine Thai Cuisine is one of the oldest and perhaps the best Thai restaurant in the Akasaka neighborhood. Located at basement level on Esplanade Dori, Ananda has a great combination of tasty Thai food, friendly (not just polite) service and good value. The menu is very extensive with a wide range of dishes, so there is likely something on the menu to suit most diets. Being in a basement, cellular reception is terrible. But that's a plus for conversation. Be aware that there is a 10% service charge and menu prices do not include 10% consumption tax.
