Anokaa - Salisbury

My father recommended this restaurant, and it was a good call. It has immaculate service and presentation of the food. I chose Makmali as a starter - chicken with subtle flavours of garlic, mint and chilli. This was followed by Laknowe style lamb curry, fairly hot and served with beautiful saffron rice, both of which were quite excellent. I also ordered a cheese chilli naan, something I'd not tried before. This was fairly heavy, and didn't have much in the way of chilli. I was full before I could finish it. For drinks I chose a mango lassi (I needed to keep a clear head), sparkling mineral water and then tap. All served with a smile.

This place isn't cheap. With papadums, pickles, tip and so on, it's upwards of £25 a head even without wine. But my dad also told me that Anokaa means 'something else' in Hindi. And that's a good call too.
