Visited here with our two grown up kids to celebrate my husbands 60th birthday. Gorgeous food - kids are both veggie/vegan and there was so much choice. We pre-ordered starters and mains which was actually really nice to take time to choose and just relax...on arrival. Waitresses were super nice and professional - husband touched when his truffles were brought out with birthday candles. Lots of other tables occupied and everyone commenting on the lovely food etc. Have used their food truck several times (Saffron Hall - off the beaten truck) - always fab too. Thank you Sergio & the team. We’ll be back!More

Fabulous food and fabulous service - even arranged a delivery for me. Prawn chicken toast is outstanding and loved the Beef Massaman curry. Thanks.

We ordered food to collect from the van. The takeawy packaging was inadequate. The food was cold by the time we got it home and the curries had soaked through the packaging and leaked into the bag. Very disappointing. And most annoyingly, very easily solved...by using the right packaging .Food was average, portion sizes here definitely on the mean size -- ie 6 pieces of chicken in the green curry. All in all, an experience all to true to lockdown life. Won't be using again. I have eatned in the restaurant before and had muhc more positive experiences so maybe this is an unfortunate anomaly ....More

We hadn’t eaten out since before the first lockdown in March so we really needed a change of scenery to celebrate a birthday meal and it wasn’t a difficult decision in choosing Ananta, our favourite local restaurant. And what a great choice it was. The...welcome is always warm and friendly - Sergio is wonderful and genuine front of house host and Ananta cooks and presents delicious food ...a great combination. The only difficult decision is choosing whether to go for their Thai or Tapas menu days! A beautiful old pub in a quiet, rural village with great hosts and delicious food ...what more could you ask for?More

Delicious food and friendly staff - we visited Ananta for the first time tonight for my husbands birthday and had a wonderful meal. We placed our order over email beforehand which made everything more efficient. We had duck spring rolls with pad Thai and massaman...beef curry, all really flavoursome and good portions. We have eaten at many Thai restaurants around the world and Ananta did not disappoint. Thank you Sergio and team!More

Lovely Thai restaurant, the food was nice and had a good flavour and spice. I actually liked ordering before we went and found by doing this it made the evening go very smoothly. The meal was timed perfectly and the service from Sergio was second...to none.More

We were visiting friends in the village who arranged the takeaway and I cannot compliment the food enough! The Spring Rolls were fresh, home made and very tasty. The fish cakes and satay were ok too. We shared Pad Thai and a Green Curry -...both very tasty and as good as we’ve eaten in Thailand - our friend’s dish of Penang Curry stoke the show I could easily have licked the dish clean. We will be back - Thank you Sergio!More

We have been going to Ananta for a few years now, as much as we can. It’s a 30 minute drive but we still go there to get take aways as their food is absolutely amazing! I have used some older photos as they are...only open for take away at the moment. Nothing is too much trouble for Sergio & Ananta, the pub is so cosy & I can’t wait for it to be open again. If you love Thai food, don’t wait any longer to book in for a takeaway! We have been to Thailand a few times but Ananta is still some of the best Thai food we have tasted!More
