Anokha (St Pauls)

I visited Anokha in St Pauls on a cold and wintry Friday evening. The location is near St Pauls and is relatively easy to find  but I nonethe less  got a little lost but I didn’t mind as that meant I got to walk through the small alley ways that I love in London to find it.

Upon arriving I was a little disappointed to be taken to the seating downstairs as upstairs looked really nice and downstairs it was just me and the boyfriend and a large group of men (it seemed like it was a late work Christmas party). In the end I didn’t feel so left out as a number of other diners were also seated downstairs.

As a starter I had the Lamb Tikka which was essentially 3 strips of lamb and was tasty. For my main I had Gulap Chilli Gosht which was quite spicy (it was said to be a medium level of spice) but I am really into spicy food at the moment and I loved the after burning sensation in my mouth. For dessert I wanted to have the flourless cake but the waiter said that as they didn’t make the flourless cake inhouse, they couldn’t guarantee that it was 100% gluten-free. Instead the waiter suggested the pistachio icecream for a dessert, which I had, and it was deliciously refreshing.

The service was good and the main waiter who served us was friendly and chatty (but not too chatty).

All in all it was a nice Indian meal and I would come back again.
