the best Indian food that's NOT made by my grandma!! 3/22/2009

CSMobileUser Provided by Partner
this restaurant has some of the best Indian food I've ever had. We started out with the Gujarati kachori's and the onion bhajias. Let me add that they were made by an actual Gujarati so they WERE the actual thing! Then we went on to have the paneer mukhni, tikka masala, rogan josh, & the chicken vindaloo. They were not only spicy, but they were also flavorful and the right size. It seems as if restaurants give you such big portions that they have the doggie bag waiting by your order because they know that you're going to take it home!!! But anyway, the naans were warm and fluffy and the rice better than the average rice you get at other restaurants. It is a little expensive but you have to remember that a lot of work goes into a curry and the spices themselves aren't cheap. The only issue is parking- you have to search for it along the streets or in a parking garage which can become pricey. But in all, this restaurant is probably one of my favorites and I would definately come back again!!! more

Best Indian food in Miami! 3/8/2009

CSMobileUser2 Provided by Partner
By far, the friendliest staff of any Indian restaurant in Miami - you will feel like family here. And the food is delicious, with many subtle but ingenious updates to traditional Indian fare - the addition of arugula to palak paneer, for instance, is truly inspired. A very respectable wine list, designer martinis and desserts such as their famous chocolate samosas are out of this world. Hip, elegant, modern atmosphere with down-tempo Indian electronic music and comfortable seating indoors and out makes this the perfect dining experience. Very highly recommended. more

Awful. not the same as the old Anokha 2/2/2009

johnpeltier85 Provided by Partner
First of all, they completely changed their menu and style when they moved in mid 2008. All reviews prior to that should be discarded. Instead of the old, traditional menu they've tried create a fusion indian style something.... it's not working. My boyfriend and I have tried them 3 times (hey, we're desperate for indian) and we were sorely dissappointed each time. We have fond memories of the "old" Anokha but this new thing they're doing just isn't working. Specifically, the naan is tired and dried. The shrimp biryani was bland, tasteless. Service ranges from indifferent to non-existent. They make you feel like you're annoying them if you ask for anything. On one visit they brought the bread well after we had finished our feel and got argumentative when we told them we didn't want it. Then they added an 18% tip!!! more

RUDE, small portions, overpriced...... 12/20/2008

Very small portions. When the check arrived there was a charge for the rice, asked for explanation, was given such a bad attitude. My first and last visit. more

Nicest Indian Restaurant I've ever seen 12/14/2008

jefftt Provided by Partner
I live in the Grove so, I've been to the restaurant a few time in their old location. I have to say that the new place is the nicest Indian restaurant I've ever seen. Usually, their dark, dingy, and smell. NOT THIS PLACE!!! They have a full bar, with specialty drinks and a huge Indian beer selection. The food is great. I had the butter chicken and my roommate had the lambchops. Both were awesome. They have a bottomless glass of wine which is great and there's a cool lounge in the back to chill out in. It's a little pricey, but, it's well worth it. they also have a whole section of fusion dishes for those scared of the Indian food. Highly recommend this Grove treasure.. Pros: Great Food, Nice atmosphere, close to home Cons: None worth noting more

not very authentic indian, servers don't care, old fish... 11/23/2008

camoureux Provided by Partner
I have eaten here twice now at the new location.... The first time with my boyfriend and it was actually really good, not very authentic but still it tasted good. Our server was nice and pretty knowledgeable. It was way over priced but we had a nice time. except when I wanted to order dessert. she brought me the menu, i ordered a chai and a dessert. she brings me my tea and then tells me they don't have the dessert i ordered. so i looked at the menu again and picked something else. then she comes back 5 minutes later and says they don't have that either. well.. i try one last time and of course with out fail. they don't have it. Why did she even bring me the menu the first time.? well... the second time I went was with a couple friends, i had told them how good it was so they wanted to go. I was embarrassed. the food this time was just ok. the appetizers were good. the mains eh.. mediocere. one of them however was off! We had the tandoori fish. it was mahi mahi. and living in Miami I eat ALOT of mahi mahi. and this fish was OLD. it tasted REALLY FISHY and I could smell it when I put it my mouth. Horrible. so i brought this to the attention of our server and well he didn't really seem to care. I told him he should tell the chef, and he told me I should tell the chef! WHAT??? I proceeded to tell him that i don't work here you do and its your responsibility as a server to relay information like this to the kitchen and management, then he just smiled and walked away!. HA! wow. is all I can say. didnt' bother trying to order dessert. at this point we just wanted to go. $140 for 3 people. oh and they charged us the fish. not sure if I will go back there or not. I like to give restaurants the benefit of the doubt but the audacity of this place is out of line. Pros: its close to my apartment Cons: read the review more

NOT FOR INDIANS!!! 12/28/2007

rajmehta Provided by Partner
This is probably one of the worst Indian restaurants I have had food in in the US. they have named certain dishes which are the specialities of certain states eg Goan Vindaloo (from Goa), Lucknowy Biryani (from Lucknow), but trust me, there are no specialities. I ordered for a Lucknow Biryani and what I got was chicken pulao which did not even taste good. So I told the waiter that this is not Biryani and guess what? the waiter has the nerve to first tell me that this is how they prepare their biryanis and then he went on to ask me if I was from India, because chicken pulao and biryani are one and the same thing!!! Can you believe it??? He finally stopped talking when I told him that I was actually from Lucknow in India and knew everything about making Biryanis!! After all the discussion I had I thought that at least they would not charge me for the biryani, since I had only had a spoon from it. Instead they charged me for it and when I said I did not want to take the dish home, he has the audacity to say that I would defintely be able to find some use for it Bottom line-this is not a restaurant for people who are looking for authentic indian food. In fact I would not recommend this restaurabt to anyone. It is expensive, the service is poor and of course mainly because the food is not Indian!!!! more

Best Indian Food west of India 6/12/2007

achandler Provided by Partner
Although the place is small, and the atmosphere is dark, the food is just simply incredible. I have heard that they are in the process of moving to a much larger, extremely well designed space not to far away (still in the Grove), and I am sure that the decor will soon complement the cuisine. I look forward to seeing them come into their own, moving into a space that they deserve, and rocking the world with their delicious Indian delights. In the meantime, I will endure the dark atmosphere again and again just for the delicious treats. If you?re looking for great service, go to a resort. If your looking for great food, go to Anokha!!! Pros: Good Food, Good people, Good owners. Cons: Dark atmosphere, but its all about to change more

Worst Indian Food and Service Ever. Avoid at all costs! 4/30/2007

bobby19 Provided by Partner
I know there aren't many Indian restaurants in Miami...but this is one to avoid. The service here is TERRIBLE. We waited 1.25 hours before even getting our appetizer. The food is eh, not so great. I've had much better food at places that are less expensive. And the prices are too much for what they give you (ie rice = $5....yeah your dish doesn't come with rice - are you supposed to eat it with your hands?). Oh, and in case you are irritated about the service, food, or whatever you'll still end up paying the 18% gratuity for the awful experience. Avoid! Pros: None Cons: Everything: food, service, price, and 18% mandatory gratuity more

Awesome food = willing to put up with shite service 3/16/2007

carlson_bethany Provided by Partner
Mouth-watering, delicate cuisine at Anokha is the antithesis of the curry house that calls once you're 5 beers up at about 9 on a Thursday night. The seafood dishes in particular are divine. Sure it's the most expensive Indian restaurant I've been to and the service always look like they'd rather be scrubbing toilets at a dysentery clinic then attending clientele, but my mouth is so happy that the list of things I care less about is only about three items long. The decor is simple but warm and somewhat romantic. I'll be spending a lot of time here. Pros: Food, food, food Cons: Service, price more

Don't get cheated! 2/7/2007

matsui55 Provided by Partner
They list Tandoori platter for $28, but I was charged $34. The waiter neither mention the surcharge when I ordered the dish nor it was written in the menu. When I pointed out the mistake to the waiter, he did not take it back by insisting that everyone who comes to the restaurant knows the platter with boneless chicken breast cost more. I had to call the owner to reverse the charge. The food is not bad, but it is very pricey there. Even for Miami, a curry dinner for two should not cost over $90. I hate restaurants (or waiters) that cheat customers. Pros: good food quality but very expensive Cons: food comes out slow, dirty interior more

AWFUL 7/7/2005

Bad food! Bad service! Overpriced! I am an Indian and have eaten in many Indian retaurants across the country. Undoubtedly, one of the worst! Would never go back even if I hang out in the Coconut Grove neighborhood which I love! Believe me. Cons: Overpriced, Poor qualiy of food more

Too Expensive, not worth your money! 5/30/2003

Alinio Provided by Partner
I was very disappointed. After seeing it qualify for "Best of" of CitySearch, I was expecting a lot more. Value wise, a joke! Definetly not worth the prices they charge. And they add 18% gratuity on ALL checks, not only for big parties. On top, service wasn't very friendly. more

Spicy, Unique and friendly! 12/10/2002

This is a nice place to hang out and have a great 3 course meal with your lover. The food is spicy just the way we liked it, and the service was polite and friendly. We sat outside and people-watched. The Anokha roll was one of our favorites. Pros: Fab Food, Outdoor Seating, People Watching Cons: Too small, Typical Indian Deco, The wait more

Worst Service I have ever received!! 10/6/2002

ghairamesh Provided by Partner
Avoid this one at all cost. You will be seated and be forgotton about. This is exactly what happened to me. I was seated and half an hour later waiter came and said that he forgot that we were there. He had this smirk on his face as if they were having fun at their guests expensel. Not a place I would go back again. It took over another hour to get the food, and guess what..wrong order. Upon complaining, the manager became very upset and starting arguing. Trust me folks...stay away. This is not the place where you would wanna go and have an authentic indian dining experience. Pros: SO SO Food, Convenient Location, Ok Wine selection Cons: Poor Service, Bad Attitude, Uncomfortable more

Poor Attitude and Poor Service 9/23/2002

vmakol Provided by Partner
The service you get here is the worst. I was shocked to see the attitude of the owner. This guy is arrogant, ignorant of his own background. Food was not that great either. Poor service!! As a matter of fact, I emailed the restaurant, but no response. Shame! more
