“Exceptional”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

Exceptional food quality, service, and standards from anoki burton.
The setting and atmosphere was great and we will certainly return.
Thanks to Lara the manager and her team for looking after us so well, we felt like we were the only diners in the restaurant.
Fab food in a fab setting.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

The food was top class. The service was appalling. We had waitress for the the evening that we only saw once. We waited forever for for a wine list then forever for a menu. We ordered wine which took ages after being asked three times which wine we had ordered. We finally gave an order which took an eternity. Then another endless wait for the sweet menu, and then another wait! We finally got the bill we was overcharged by over £90.
I will not be going again.

“Great food, excellent service and lovely venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014 via mobile

I have eaten here several times now with family. The food has to be some of the best Indian cuisine we have ever eaten anywhere and the service is always excellent. The atmosphere is a twist of modern with traditional (waiters/waitresses immaculately dressed in traditional-looking outfits) which definitely adds to the occasion. Everything is exceptionally clean too .. cutlery, plates, serving dishes, glasses. Order wine and the waiter/waitress is never far away, ready to refill your empty glass. My teenage children love the place. I cant fault it! Their Derby city centre restaurant is also excellent and I plan on trying out their Nottingham venue shortly.I would highly recommend the Anoki to anyone. In addition they also have some great early bird/variety of discounts available and their takeaway is also fab!

“Best Indian Meal EVER!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

I have driven past this place lots of times - just south of Derby on the A38 by the Donington turn.
Visited with friends last Friday - can only say it was a truly memorable experience!
Only slightly dodgy thing was the entrance - when we arrived it looked closed and didn't look entirely welcoming - I was wondering what we were in for. No such worries from the moment we did walk in!
Great greeting - prompt service , attentive staff (in spite of it being busy) , a really interesting menu , gorgeous food - we shared 2 mixed tandoori starters - meat and vege , my main couse of Tandoori Salmon was just brilliant, and the warm Gulab Jamun and Kulfi was unspeakably good!
£120 for 4 of us - we went for the early bird meal - was possibly the best value for money meal I have ever had!!
Can't wait to go back….
