If you like northern Indian cuisine you will love this place. It ticked all boxes on a cold winters night. The dishes were fresh, tasty and different from the standard Indian menus seen in Sydney. Give it a try. A great find.

After two great entrees we didn't need a main so one more entree was enough. Great value and good food.

We were so lucky to get a table without a booking at this tiny Indian restaurant on a recent winter Saturday night. The naan was so, so good. Definitely order the samosas, the filling packs a punch. Wait staff run off feet. BYO.

Dinner for 10 people, pre-ordered and shared. The goat rogan josh nearly caused a squabble. It was so good. There wasn't enough! The palak paneer is to die for

We had beef rogan josh, chilli cheese naan bread & pakoras. Rogan josh was full of flavour - super tasty with a nice touch of heat. Meat was slightly dry but tender & in large chunks with no fat. I am pretty fussy when it...More

We enjoyed our meal but have had other Indian meals that were more to our liking in our home town of Lithgow. Service was very good even though they were very busy on the night.

Tucked away from the main drag, Katoomba Street, in Warratah street, 30 meters down the hill from the bottom roundabout is Anki,S restaurant. Do your tastebuds a favour. Great Indian foods at a great price.

There appears to be many mixed reviews, but as a customer who had dined at Ankis several times over 8 years this is my final opinion. My wife and I used to drive from penrith to Ankis all the time must have spend over a...More

Dear Sir, Its very amazing to know that the loo that you use for 2 minutes and which you used for 8 years suddenly became dodgy. We offer our staff toilet as a facility, we do not have a fancy one. Many restaurants and cafes...More

Your question has been answered already, but a tip is that if you are going on a Friday or Saturday night make sure you reserve your table. The place fills up pretty quickly and I've seen "walk-ins" turned away many times.
