So good I could not snap a picture before it was all gone!
The food, service, and atmosphere was very nice and we will definitely return. What was disappointing and, frankly, annoying was the sound of the telephone nearby - very loud ring that was not always answered within the first few rings. We asked our server, and then another server, if perhaps the ring volume could be reduced, but there was no such accommodation made. Sorry that it spoiled an otherwise pleasant dining experience.
Delicious food, great service -- as always! Anokha is one of our favorites!
Food was quite good, with the exception of fritters in a vegetable appetizer platter that were oversalted. Lamb Korma was tender and mild at spice level 1 (it goes up to 6). Nice selection of wine, beer and cocktails. Paratha was a little bland but entrees were good. The lighting was extra bright and not very restaurant-y on the night we went. Noise level is fine (music in background but it was enjoyable). Attentive service.
Great service and delicious food
Food was ok...not the best Indian cuisine I've had. I asked for mild and my food was still very hot/spicy. Service was fair. I felt we were being rushed, but very polite. Ambiance modern, nice, well lit so you could actually see your food and lots of room to eat outside if you so desire. Inside, adequate space between tables. Basically ok. I've had better right here in Richmond
Alway a great eating experience. Save distance to other guests and tables. We are planning an other visit.
Seated promptly. Service was excellent. Food was wonderful.
The food is delicious and you are treated so well. It is a fantastic place for Indian food.
I am a long time fan of Anokha and my expectations were met once again. Inside tables were socially distanced and staff and patrons appeared to be taking appropriate precautions. Lunch was delicious as always and the bottle of chardonnay cut the heat of our dishes. They have the best naan! bubbly, crusty in spots and warm. Perfect to sop up all the goodness of the sauces.
Great Indian food.
The menu offers extensive choices of a variety of Indian cuisine, including appetizers. The food quality and presentation are superb, among the best of many Indian restaurants we have gone to. The service is prompt and polite. High value also for the prices.
I never disappointed. The food is incredible, the service is great.
We try a new restaurant once a week and visit the restaurants we liked best once a week. Anokha made the list of restaurants to revisit.
Forest, I was very happy to have an outdoor seating option. Only complaint, no seat cushions for a wood bench seat.
Good and services were great. My wife and I definitely want to go there again
Anokha is consistently great and never disappoints. This visit, we went for lunch but got the same attentive service and fine food we appreciate at dinner. At lunch they offer soup or salad. We both enjoyed the Coconut Lime Soup although I would prefer a soup with some vegetation in it. For entrees, I had the Lamb Korma and my husband tried the Tandoori Platter. Both were well prepared and so tasty that he-who-hates-cauliflower ate it all! Lunch also includes a side dish, a basket of naan, and dessert, excellent as usual. Service is quite attentive and all the servers wore masks. Also, the tables have been spread out for social distancing. This was one of our first meals "out" since March and well worth the chance!
Amazing food! Definitely will be back!
Great food. The spice was just right and the out door seating was very comfortable.
Delicious food, wonderful service, a lovely oasis during a crazy time.
This restaurant never disappoints. The food and the service are great every time we go there. We love it!
Great lunch venue. The Chicken 65 was fabulous - AND HOT! We had good expedient service and enjoyed the food. Will be back soon.
Too cold in the restaurant area. Other than that food was great!
Wonderful, always great food and a very friendly staff.
Had lunch here for my wife’s birthday because it’s her favorite Indian restaurant (possibly her favorite overall) and they definitely did not disappoint. Friendly, prompt and attentive service coupled with great food made for a wonderful lunch.
Love this place. Food is exceptional.
Good service, amazing indian food. Will go again
It is, by far, the best Indian restaurant in Richmond. We always have a positive experience there.
We go back to Anokha regularly and always fine the food, the wine, and the service excellent.
Service was great. The waiters answered questions... made recommendations... really, they were great. The decor is tough. The lighting would be much better on a dimmer... It felt like flourescent. :( Sound was fine.. no issue. We will be back
Excellent. Love it.
The food is consistently delicious!! However, the waiter we had for our Valentine's Day dinner was not very good. The couple next to us was seated and fed before us and we arrived before them. Our original waiter never came back to our table after taking our order. We relied on the waiter (whose table was next to us) to assist us. Had it not been for him, we'd probably still be sitting there.
Valentine's Evening couldn't have gone better. Arrived 10 minutes before our reservation and was seated immediately. Service was attentive and timely. Food well prepared and tasty. A good choice for our special night.
We made reservations for Valentine’s Day because it it a special place. We love the food and the staff are so accommodating. We had a wonderful evening that ended with them giving me a rose. Thanks. We will return.
We have been many times and like the place. The service is mixed but the food is always good.
Anokha has consistently good food, excellent staff and service. Limited drink menu
I have never had a bad meal here and highly recommend it
Great food and service.
Excellent food but ridiculously loud on the night we visited. A group of 13 cotillion kids were there. Manager should have seated them in the patio tent. Some diners got up and left because you literally could not hear a conversation
Really wonderful food, I was surprised at how quiet it was even though it was a small room & every table was full by the middle of our meal. The tikka masala was amazing (my meal) & so was the naan. My husband loved his lamb saag. We’ll be back!
Favorite Indian in Richmond. I like the lamb dishes (believe it or not the chicken is to high end. I like dark meat for my Indian dishes and they only use breast). Best nann!
The waitress spilt water on our table and did not bother replace the table cloth. The food was just okay.
