For the spice!

It can be tough to find food with a little heat in the South. Anokha does spicy well, without allowing a little heat to overpower flavor. The service is outstanding, and the food is solid. Even if you DON'T like heat, the complex spices and flavor of their entrees is masterful. Even though it... read more

My daughter and I were visiting Richmond for a LAX tourney as part of her travel lacrosse league. We usually try to skip chain restaurants when traveling and we both enjoy ethnic foods. We have been more wary of Indian food lately mostly because our last several experiences have been buffets and have been not good at all. Still....we were... More

First visit to Anokha in the west end of Richmond and it was a surprising treat. The crab curry was served with basmati rice. I ordered the garlic naan as well. All delicious and I look forward to having the same meal again, but there are many other choices I'd also like to try. The atmosphere is comfortable with elegant... More

I liked everything about this place, particularly because I was looking for someplace quiet after a loud event. Garlic Naan was great as was the Raita they brought with it. Got a lamb briyani that was at my tolerance for spice even at mild. Was good despite the spice. Biggest Mango Lassi for the price I've seen.

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
