8 reviews of Anokha Restaurant in English
Decoration of the place if pretty nice, its perfect for a business lunch and yet not that good for every-day visit altho the prices were affordable. Its spacious, has enough places for a big group or even a party.
I'm a big fan of curry and here it was prepared really good, I could even say that it was one of the best I've ever eaten and believe me I've had a lot.
As a starter I had a Mixed Platter (Chicken tikka, sheek kebab & pakoras) which was nice, but nothing special really. Then for the main dish I ordered Madras Chicken (boneless chicken cooked in hot curry sauce), and it was fantastic, I suppose mainly because of the curry sauce, meat was fresh and tasty.
I'll be sure to visit this place more often.
The food here is superb, i had the king prawn jalfrezi not to hot and not to mild (just how i like it) served prawns were huge and was a perfect sized portion and i would high recommend this.
Onion bhajj's are the best ive ever tasted and also have a nice kick to them (you will know what i mean if you have had the luxury of ever trying them.
Also keep your eyes peeled for the occasional celebrity appearance.
The menu is an À la carte menu also have a choice of 2 set menus also
Take a look at their menu at www.anokha-indian.com
Would highly recommend this restaurant 5 *'s for me !!
The Hottest Indian in the Square Mile! Me and my friends absolutely love it. Its very upmarket and attracts affluent customers from the city aswell as celebrities. The food is very authentic and the staff were faboulous.
If I want to go for a nice curry lunch, most likely I'll choose Anokha. The basement location (of course it's in the basement - it's a City restaurant...) is quite nice and not your usual curry house. It's pretty bright (despite being in the basement), and you don't have an overpowering hit of curry when you walk in. Basically, it's posh curry.
The poppadoms (which are GBP 1.20 a portion whatever that is) were good and the sauces served with it (a selection of four - the usual yoghurt, mango chutney, onion-tomatoey thing, and a lemony tasting sauce) were good but nothing out of the ordinary. We started with the mixed starter for four which had a selection of paneer, chicken tika, lamb sheesh kebab, samosa and onion bahji. Looking at the menu online, I see that Anokha lists other items for the mixed starter so I am not sure if we actually received different items, or if I am just mixing up my Indian food. Regardless, it was all nice except the lamb which I found a little greasy. For my main I had the Chicken Rogan Josh which was nice and light but surprisingly lacked a little flavour. This is actually quite critical, as I'd prefer this over a heavier curry any day. I am not a curry expert so I won't spend time comparing the other dishes my companions got except to say that they were all excellent.
The service at Anokha was great, and the food was good too. I am not a massive curry fan at lunch, just because I find it quite heavy, but I like this place every once in a while. It would be my number one choice for curry in this part of the City.
Decor: Upmarket curry. Nice enough for a nice business lunch.
Price: It's not a cheap curry joint. The mains are about GBP14.
Good For: A nice corporate lunch where your companions want curry and you want to go somewhere slightly more upmarket.
