We stopped here for dinner on our way back to our hotel.

The menus declared that Mr Ali has no restaurants anywhere else, don't be fooled by imitations etc etc. The prices seemed expensive, but why not if it was so good?

But it wasn't.

We had an average chicken tikka massala, an average moglai(?) , popadoms, tasteless chicken pakora (and I do mean tasteless) and some tiny limp onion bhaji.

A couple of drinks each helped the bill creep towards the fifty pound mark.

Service was superb , but the food lessened the experience.

There is always a warm welcome at the Anaz! Good food, good service, and there is always a snifter of brandy for the men and "Bom-Baileys" for the girls after the meal. In addition, I must mention probably the cleanest toilets anywhere. Well done!

Good food, exceptionally served. Friendly staff, clean and a lovely restaurant atmosphere all in all would most definitely recommend and certainly visit again. The owner Ali doesnt sit in an office but is out in the restaurant serving and chatting to all the customers. This was our first visit and We left as if Ali had known us forever.

Been many, many times over the years - first time it had only been open a short while and that was over 30 years ago. Consistently wonderful food, service and ambience. Check out the toilets - they have to be the cleanest anywhere! Thank you to Mr Ali and all the staff from "The Simpsons"

lovely meal once again, can't fault it, but it's very expensive! have been going for over 20 years, only worried visits will get less and less given the prices.
