Had the lamb kebab for starter the flavour of the meat was smokey and it was tender with a nice hit of chilli not too hot. Highly recommend.

We've eaten at this restaurant quite a lot over the years and it never disappoints. Last night was no exception. Everything from the warm welcome, the nice cocktail at the bar to start things off (my wife's Margherita was divine; I'd have preferred more gin and less martini it my Dry Martini), a lovely table by the window, the friendly...

Here's my food recommendations. Try the two way duck starter or the scallops and the prawn jalfrezi as a main was fantastic. If you can wait fir the slow cooked lamb shank, it is worth the wait. It is a bit pricey, and the wine is over-priced but quality of food is superb and worth it.

Five stars might be a sight exaggeration as it's not mind blowing or anything but between good service, good food and competitive enough prices it cant be faulted.

Personally, I love heat. I thought my sample dishes were amazing. My girlfriend went with the Butter Chicken which normally is quite mild. However, it was too hot for her and she couldn't eat much. Amazing food overall from the starters to dessert. Just be sure to ask for no chilli if you don't like heat.

First time to visit this restaurant. Had heard a lot of very good reviews and wasn't disappointed. Staff were very friendly and attentive . Food was excellent - full of flavour and had a real freshness about it. Yes it is expensive - but more than worth the price.

Really fine food with brilliant flavours. The menu is regularly reviewed and never fails to please. Staff is really friendly and professional. Wish I could afford it more often.

Can't rave enough about the Jaipur chains but Ananda is one of the best. The taste and quality is to perfection; the price is definitely justified. The staff are always great too. Brilliant for date night, with family or with friends. Strongly recommend.
