I am so glad I took the time to search Trip Advisor for a great Indian Restaurant. There are many choices in Richmond. This one is definitely a notch above. Although Lamb Rogan Josh was not on the menu, I asked for it and they did not hesitate to accommodate my request. The flavor was great, spice level - medium... More

An intimate setting, not loud even though two large groups were seated at same time. Waiter was helpful giving suggestions for our vegan diet. Food was excellent, only with we had room for dessert.

Anokha was recommended by a friend who lives in the area. We were a group of 7 visiting on a Monday night (not busy) and were graciously given a large table near the back which was perfect for conversation. The beverage selection was very nice (alcohol and otherwise), and we enjoyed an appetizer 'sampler' while waiting for our full party... More

My wife and I were a little reluctant when I dinner group decided to go to an Indian restaurant. We are not that adventurous and were concerned that the food would be too spicy. Thanks to others in the party we were given good suggestions. The soup of the day was very simple but tasty. My wife and I shared... More

This Indian restaurant regular finds Anohka to be top notch and one of the best N. indian restaurants in the mid- Atlantic region. The lamb rogan josh is exceptional and worth a detour and the hassle of dealing with the seemingly constant traffic congestion in this Short Pump corridor. For some unknown reason the dish is only on the lunch... More

Had been to Anokha on atleast 10 occassions and had a good experience on each visit with family. We went there mostly for lunch and had vegetarian food. The main course comes with a choice of salad/soup, Nan (bread) and rice. The soups and salads are different and really appetizing, making you crave for the main course. The main course... More

1) Prices. Lunch specials are the exact same as what you'd get for dinner, but several dollars less each dish, and the exact same size. Two ppl can eat for $20-$30 depending on what you order. 2) Bonus. You get a salad/soup, naan, rice, a veggie side, and a tiny dessert - all included in the price. We often walk... More

I had been to Anokha based on the online reviews, since the ratings say it is the best indian restaurant in Richmond. But sadly that was not the case for me. the food quality, taste was pathetic and the portions were too small for the price. We ordered goat curry as it was their specialty but the pieces were all...
