SquareMeal Review of Anoki

This smart Indian, housed on the upper floor of an ornately decorated former cinema, is a world away from your average curry house. It pays close attention to detail in everything from service to surrounds – think a magnificent gilded, curved ceiling, large murals of Indian fashion & jewellery, crisp linen, sparkling tableware & smiling, traditionally dressed staff. The menu also includes plenty of old favourites – korma, rogan josh, chicken tikka – while at the same time casting the culinary net wider with interesting dishes such as tangy lamb haandi & salmon dil tikka. Well worth a visit.

This Indian restaurants beats anything in London. The Service is impeccable, almost theatrical – the waiters, dressed in elaborate traditional costume with plumed hats glide around the vast dining hall quietly in their Aladdin slippers. It's an Indian restaurant that will appeal as much to Curry fanatics as to those who prefer more elegant cooking – a great combination of both relaxed informality and beutifully presented dishes without the pomp of certain Indian restaurants in the Capital that perhaps try a little too hard. I was also very pleasantly surprised to discover that as we were dining early one main course was free, this was explained to me when the bill arrived. Plus the Podppadums were free. Naturally we tipped well. A terrific find and an absolute must if in the area.
