We visited Aneesa’s before a concert at the arena. It was our first visit and it won’t be our last! Upon arrival we were seated very quickly and given a very warm welcome by the manager De Souza. He took our drinks order and as it was our first time showed us around and explained how it worked as well as gave recommendations. This level of customer service is very rare these days!!

The food was all fresh with so many things to choose from. The starters were delicious especially the chicken tikka. The selection of mains was excellent, regularly topped up so you never missed out and always received freshly cooked food. And if you are a dessert lover then this place is for you, you could almost have an entire meal of desserts there are so many to choose from. I’d recommend the gulab jamun as a must!

The staff were friendly, efficient and couldn’t be more helpful. De Souza was a breath of fresh air and I thank him for his service. The only downside was we needed to leave to get to the concert so couldn’t stay longer to eat more!!!!

We visited February 2024 and were greeted by the duty manager De Souza who took the time to show us around the buffet and explained all of the food/drink options. He checked in with us a few times during our time there, making sure we were comfortable. The choice of food is fantastic. Loads of Indian curries but also Chinese food such as chicken and black bean, chow mein. Then there is a section with pizzas, garlic bread, onion rings, chips, nuggets etc which are all excellent quality. Everything is made fresh and you can tell us good quality. Many thanks to De Souza and all staff for a great night.

This evening we visited Aneesa's for a family celebration after having not visited since before lockdown.
We were served by Desoula, Duty Manager. What a lovely gentleman who took the time to have a chat with us about the various foods available and other things. He is very knowledgeable, friendly and is a credit to Aneesa's. He got us to try something we had not tried before, the Gajar ka halwa. It was delicious!
I have always loved the food at Aneesa's and it certainly did not disappoint on this occasion, either. The starters are authentic, tasty and fresh. The onion bhaji, chicken tikka, aloo tiki and lamb rib are all amazing. My husband loved the palak paneer and chicken Biryani, I loved the lamb rogan josh and our daughters loved the chicken korma and pilau.
I am pleased that the way the desserts are served has changed as I found the self service of the desserts quite off-putting at times as some people would pick things up with their hands and put them back, where this is no longer an issue as a lovely lady served us with them.
Much as I would loved to have sampled everything this evening, there is just so much to choose from I couldn't possibly eat that much. We will be back very soon. Thank you for a lovely evening.
