Go for LUNCH, here's WHY:

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... read more

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...

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.

My family and I were traveling through Richmond and staying in the Glen Allen area. We love Indian food, searched the web for somewhere to eat and found this restaurant. It was wonderful! 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.
