I am quite tardy in writing this review but am now astonished to see that this restaurant is not one of the top restaurants in Agra. I travel to India often and this was my second trip to Agra to bring my son and was surprised by this absolute GEM. The restaurant in the patio of the Marriot Courtyard (which by the way is nothing like one in the U.S. so they really need to re-market themselves to reflect the more luxurious nature of this lovely hotel) was our best meal in this particular two week trip to India. this is not your typical hotel restaurant which we lazily chose as we were staying at the hotel and too tired from the day at the Taj Mahal to scout for other place. WHAT A LUCKY DECISION. The food was amazing with spicy food for us and less spicy for my son. The service was impeccable with Azhar a real standout. The ambience in the patio is also so perfect with the tiki torches and the entertainment. They even CAME AND TOOK my 8 y.o. son to a show while my wife and I had a romantic dinner together (for a brief time until he returned! LOL!). This is a must go to if you spend the night in Agra.

Dear Guest,

I have personally thanked Azhar for his impeccable service.

Your review has been shared with the entire team and they thank you for your valuable recognition.

The entire team looks forward to welcome you back to The Courtyard by Marriott, Agra or any of our Marriott properties around the globe in the near future.

My wife and I visited here with friends and found the food to be very good and authentic. We had the tandoori chicken and really enjoyed. Additionally, the outdoor atmosphere was very nice even though the evening was quite warm. The waiter was very attentive and live traditional Indian music was played throughout our dinner. Very nice restaurant.

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful meal at this lovely restaurant. Our server, Amit was attentive and helped us with our dinner choices. The wine was very good and reasonably priced. We enjoyed the Indian musicians who played throughout our meal. We recommended Anise to other members of our tour group and will return the next time we visit Agra.

We stayed at the Courtyard Marriott and had read good reviews about Anise so we booked a table. It is an outdoor restaurant and very dark.
The staff were friendly enough and the bar area is pretty cool.
The food was pretty standard fair though. We had chicken kebabs to start then the chicken Korma and a prawn curry. Which were OK.
However, the prices were way over the top for the quality of the food and the setting.
Being outside you are also exposed to mosquitos.
Disappointing for the cost.
We ate at other restaurants in Delhi which were similar or higher cost but these were top end settings and food. Anise didn't hit the same heights.

We were surprised to find this style of restaurant at the back of the Marriott in Agra. Just walking into Anise is something special, the landscaping and lighting with open flames gave it a very intimate feel. We were lucky with the night too, being dead still on a clear night made it perfect for this open air restaurant. The food was sublime and their black lentil accompaniment was stunning.
The entertainment was also exquisite, live Tabla and Sitar, we didn't want to leave.
Thanks Anise, what a great evening !
