We also ate here on Nov 1, as the previous reviewer, but we did eat at the bar. It is a tiny bar and they are not really set up for meals there, but we had fun with the bartender and it was the end of the night. The chairs are very comfortable at the bar. We have eaten here... More

I have eaten dinner at Anokha at least 25 times over the past 3 to 4 years, most recently on Saturday, Nov 1. The restaurant was full, with people waiting for tables in the tiny bar area. They said it'd be a 30+ minute wait and wondered if I wanted to eat at the bar. I said "no." I have... More

There was more than enough wait staff, a lovely interior design. Every thing about it was great. I expected the prices to be outrageous but they were very fair. Then came... More

The best authentic Indian Gourmet food in Richmond and Tricities area. Excellent service, great waiters, very knowledgeable. Great menu and awesome ambiance. I have eaten at several Indian Restaurants in this area. Anokha is the best in all categories of restaurant dining.

Nice ambience, modern decor, friendly staff and great service. And the food was fabulous. My husband and daughter like spicy dishes and were not disappointed; I prefer... More

I have been to this restaurant many times with Indian and non-Indian friends. Ambience and service is good. Food quality - Meat (chicken, lamb) is ALWAYS ,ALWAYS undercooked and extremely. dry. This has been my experience in every visit. I have stopped going there. Vegetarian dishes and biryani are flavorful and taste good, but do not order non-vegetarian food.

This is one of our favorites in all of richmond. Took my wife there for dinner the night I proposed. The atmosphere is great and so is the food. Great prices for what you get, especially at lunch. The wait staff is the real highlight.... They are courteous, quick, and very friendly. Bottom line you should try this place even... More

I visited Anohka last week, with some trepidations - I expected something that was merely 'trendy', and a bit pricey, but nothing special by way of the actual food. What a delightful surprise! The service was excellent, the food superb - the best vin d';alho I have had, and properly prepared - and the prices were very reasonable. The decor... More
