Description: The regeneration of Derby continues with the burgeoning restaurant scene becoming ever more exciting. Top of our list is Anoki, an indulgent Indian restaurant which brings Asian dining in the city in to the 21st century. The arched dining room with its decadently moulded ceiling is somewhere between glamorous railway arch and pared down Eastern palace. Chandeliers hang from the ceilings, plushly upholstered high backed seats line immaculate tables and provocative artworks hang on every wall. The kitchen team bravely put together new flavour combinations, which sit comfortably alongside traditional curry house dishes and authentic tastes of the subcontinent too.

Had a great meal here with 3 business colleagues, the food, service and staff was exceptional, this is a high end restaurant, meaning pricey but the quality and presentation was fantastic, one of the best Indian meals I have tasted.

“Great food, just pricey! ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014 via mobile

I love Anoki even if it is quite over priced!
The Currys in Anoki will never let you down, they are always cooked fresh and arrive hot.
They taste amazing- like proper curry should.
If you like typical takeaway Currys then you probably won't like Anoki as they use proper spices & they taste completely different to takeaways and your "do it yourself" curry sauces.
The only downside to Anoki is it is very pricey, I wouldn't advise ordering wines or beers as we only ordered soft drinks and our bill was £40 for just two of us- so you can imagine how much it would rock up too if you ordered alcohol!

“Sweet, sweet Anoki”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014 via mobile

After an arid patch of about 2 months without setting foot in the restaurant we returned in early January. We received an exceptionally warm welcome. They remembered our drink preference, food preference: why did we leave it so long?! The food was excellent (we always get the banquet and ask for it like they do at home, ie apna style.

The service was brilliant, as it always was. One of my favourite Indians and a must for Indian food lovers.
