Hadn't been to "Anokha" in a while,so thought we would give it another whirl.We have enjoyed this restaurant so much on previous visits. As usual it was packed and the food was delicious. We ordered the veggie sampler and the papadums and mango chutney for our appetizers .Both were really good. For our main cources I ordered the chicken Tikki... More

There are some other good options in Richmond, but for classic Indian, this is it. Have not had a bad meal here. friendly service, and great lunch as well.

Visited here for a business lunch, and this place nailed the perfect dining experience. Helpful staff, on-time service, outstanding food, waiter(s) showed up at the exact-correct time. And the price was quite frankly too low for the food and service provided.

Welcomed at the door. Changed our seating for our Red Hat group. Got all of our orders correct. Lamb was delish. Waiter took the time to explain the menu and different sauces. Everyone was very pleased. The members who didn't think they liked Indian food really missed out. Many options to chose.

We enjoyed the dinner at Anokha again. Never has this place failed to impress us and our friends. I will wholeheartedly recommend this place to anyone. Tarun was very courteous, knowledgeable, friendly and fast. The food was served much faster than we expected, in spite of the fact it was almost full that night. The owner ensured everybody was served... More

Never fails. Delicious, cheap, friendly. I've left off reviewing this place for a while, because it's been jam packed ever since!! I gave away the secret! This time I went and got the standard two meals and mango lassi, and asked them to just bring something new. Goat curry, turns out, is delicous. The cucumber, red onion, fresh tomato, spiced...

U can not beat the price and quality of this Indian food-- try the saffron martini- goes very well w/ the food. The have a menu that u get Naan, rice, soup or salad, a main dish-- for under 15.00. This is served everyday for lunch. Staff are very pleasant.

After reading the positive reviews, we thought will try having dinner here at Anokha. The ambience was really good. No regrets. But the food was not up to the mark. We ordered Lasooni Gobi, malai kofta, naan and vegetable biriyani. Lasooni Gobi had exactly 6 pieces and such a small sized Gobi florets. At least Gobi florets could have been... More
