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.

A disappointing visit. We have enjoyed our visits in the past, but this time we were neglected and poorly served. Sunday lunchtimes are a buffet. As we had a party of 8, some who had travelled a long way, I wanted to ensure the staff were prepared, so booked. We were constantly asked to wait before getting food until finally we got fed up of later arrivals being ushered ahead of us. As a result there was little choice left. If the staff don’t want to cater for larger groups then they should not accept the booking. We will know to go elsewhere next time.

This was a great and very reasonably priced buffet. The starters and side dishes were superb and the curry was excellent. The options are quite limited but the quality is very high indeed and all for £8.95 per head. I'd strongly recommend it for a cheap but high quality buffet in great surroundings.

Lovely greeting on entry warm and friendly with great surroundings. Had very nice cocktails. Ordered from the menu, food arrived in good time and was very hot. The service was friendly and quietly efficient. We took our time and were not rushed. Had very good desserts which were hand made with care and we felt looked after throughout the meal. Had very pretty flower tea after my meal. We would definitely recommend a meal here to anyone. Thank you to the staff there for making our visit so pleasant.

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.

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.

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.
