Salisbury’s own Anokaa prides itself on providing a totally unique and special experience from the time you walk off of the street to the moment you leave. Staffed by waiters in traditional Indian dress, the restaurant is anything but trad. Funky and modern throughout you’ll find feature coloured lighting, architecturally shaped leather seating and bold, colourful art on the walls, lead the way to a lively meal. The concise menu is full of traditional Indian dishes with a French twist, many of which have been adapted to bring a lighter and healthier feel while still retaining Asian authenticity thanks to consultation with regional chefs. Desserts meanwhile are seasonally changing to ensure the freshest flavours.

Anokaa serves delicious Indian dishes beautifully presented. The service is attentive without being overwhelming. There is a well-chosen wine list that includes a very nice English sparkling wine available by the glass. There is background music - always a minus for me - but it stays in its place: in the background. Highly recommended.

You are made to feel very welcome as soon as you walk through the door and there's an atmosphere of quiet confidence about the place.
We started with some poppadoms which arrived with extremely tasty chutneys. Thoroughly recommended! The main courses were unusual but very well spiced, although my partner's large Madras prawns were a great improvement on my slightly disappointing chicken breast, stuffed with spiced potato and spinach. Puddings were light and refreshing and the selection of wines is spot on. Although we didn't have the set price buffet lunch, it looked wonderful.

Excellent food beautifully presented. A little more expensive than your average curry house but worth it. Service a bit slow though.. Had to wait 10 mins for the bill and then gave up and paid at bar.

Been here twice now and I have to say it is by far the best indian in England Never mind Salisbury. I genuinely mean that too, the food is incredible, the place itself is so comfortable and creates a brilliant setting. The jewel in the crown are the staff, they are so attentive and very polite, prices in my eyes are more than reasonable. would definitely recommend even to non indian eaters!

Went at lunchtime which turns out to be a buffet, so no choice of main dish. Even so, the chicken dish was lovely, quite sweet and something I would not usually choose. But please, please don’t serve English-style vegetables with it - it doesn’t go! Broccoli and courgettes, slightly mushy is a big turn- off with a lovely Indian meal. Overall, it was excellent value and very tasty.

I had a beautiful meal here for my partners birthday. I was glad to be able to find a whole host of different options and all were interesting and set themselves apart from “regular Indian/curry houses”. The service was impeccable and attentive and the food was excellent. I would recommend Anokaa.

Been here before in the evening and found the food great , different from usual Indian but the buffet lunch was nothing like it , very bland not all that hot or spicy. If you are looking for a cheap lunch and don’t particularly like hot and spicy then fine , otherwise go in the evening far superior

This is a really excellent Indian restaurant. The menu is imaginative and cooked to a high professional standard. The service was excellent - prompt and attentive without being intrusive. When we went, the restaurant was full and lively, without being too noisy. There is a very adequate, reasonably priced wine list. If the cost of the meal was possibly a little higher than one might pay in many Indian restaurants (but we drank quite a bit of wine, so that may have pushed the bill up), it was well worth paying for what was a very enjoyable experience.

Brilliant second visit. The menu is very creative and offers delicious dishes you will not find in any bulk standard ‘Indian’. The poached prawns and beef starters were wonderfully cooked. For our main dishes we had the duck breast and north Bengal chicken curry which again were delicious and beautifully presented. This is a very popular local restaurant in Salisbury and filled up quickly.

The lunchtime self-service buffet was very good . However, our overall experience was not good as we were given a bill that was double what it should have been - we found other dishes had been added . One would have expected the waiter to check the bill, especially as there were only two other people eating at that time. The bill was amended when we brought it to the waiter's attention. However, it left a sour note on what should have been an enjoyable lunch. I would think twice about returning.

This was buffet style but there is no choice of main meat curries - just one Dahl and one chicken curry which was sweet , tomato based and not at all spicy or hot .would expect a lamb or beef curry as well . Starters are odd . Disappointing . Won't return .
