SquareMeal Review of
A long-standing favourite in the Square Mile, Anokha (meaning ‘unique’ in Hindi) wins plaudits from City-based curry fans for its jazzed-up menu of classic dishes & business-friendly interiors.
Bolstered by an ever-present buzz, the interior mixes French brasserie with upmarket balti house to good effect (think polished black-&-white tiled floors, dark wood & Eastern ornaments).
Meanwhile, the kitchen sets about invigorating traditional curry house staples, with starters such as tandoori lamb chops & duck tikka several rungs up from the high-street norm. Competitive
pricing gives plenty of bang for your buck when it comes to mains; either play it safe with a pick from the line-up of dhansaks & bhunas or head for one of Anokha’s speciality dishes such as
French-trimmed rack of lamb cooked with ginger & herbs. Factor in a favourite side & some naan bread, then wash it all down with a Taj Mahal beer or full-flavoured Sancerre from the wine
