I took my wife here for the 1st time and we both really enjoyed out dinner. The staff was friendly, the restaurant clean and even though they were busy we were not neglected. Our dishes came out fairly quick and both had wonderful flavor. My wife and I will return here again.

Love the food and service, however during lunch noticed that portions have decreased. They need to expand as it is getting crowded..

This was our third time dining at this Richmond gem, and again it did not disappoint!!! The Chicken Masala and Garlic Anardana Lamb were beyond deelish and the three types of Naan bread were just wonderful...the garlic one is my fave, but my hubby argues that the cherry one is the best. Treat yourself to BOTH!!!

I've been eating here every other week in the past 4-5 years. Food and service are both great. I cannot think of a better restaurant in Richmond.

Came here because a coworker was leaving the company and he suggested Anokha for a farewell lunch. The staff were attentive and friendly and the service was quick considering we were a table of 10. I had the goat curry and as they described their hotness scale (1-6 with 6 being Indian hot), I went with a spiciness of 2... More

Food was delicious and plentiful. We were stuffed and had enough left for lunch the next day. Our waiters really made the experience awesome - they were laughing and joking with us and entertaining! Definitely recommend.

Having Indian friends who have cooked homemade food for me, I have grown a love for Indian food. I often will seek out Indian restaurants looking for the best. Anokha is a very good restaurant in Short Pump. They will deliver for a $5 fee and they will answer questions about gluten free food. My only issue is their pricing.... More

First of all, unlike most other Indian Restaurants in town, this Restaurant does not provide any Lunch Buffet. This was the first surprise for me. Food prices are on the higher side but the ambience and interior is nice. However, this is not a very big restaurant in terms of space or seating capacity. Regarding the taste of food, none... More

A great family restaurant in Richmond area. We visited for dinner with family. It is difficult to find ALL excellent appetizers in a sampler plate. Every sample was delicious, perfect spice level. Chicken tikka impressive. The best part was the service, our server warned us well that chicken 65 is hot and they cannot change spice level. I am glad... More
