We love Indian cuisine and ANAZ was probably the best place you could go for a curry in Lancashire. To be fair it remains clean, friendly and efficient. That said, more recently things have deteriorated. I think at some time in the last few months either the Chef or the Recipes have changed drastically. The curries now lack substance and... More

We visited Anaz with a group of friends there were ten people in total most who had not visited the restaurant before. Everyone of us enjoyed our meals the service was very good and to cap it all it was great value for money.

I first went here in 1988 when I moved to Darwen. I left Darwen in 2007. The portly smiling gentleman keeping a watchful eye on everything looks exactly the same, but I think he may be the next generation. If so he has inherited his father's talents and it is a joy to enter this place. Everything is top notch,... More

Many people always order the same thing. They do this because they want to make sure they have a good meal. It's understandable. Many restaurants have a number of "bankers" on the menu they always do well and sell a lot. However, many restaurants also have a load of stuff on their menu that isn't done very well at all....

I found service a little slow. The sauces with the poppadoms were not as usual in curry houses. Tasted a little too sweet. Starters were good. Main course had plenty of chicken and was tasty and had a kick being a hot curry. Naan however was cold and had not been cooked as garlic butter on it was still thick... More

Table of 5 booked for mothers day - not been for 3 and a half years and we were wondering if it would be as good as it was back then. Straight away recognised Mr Ali and some of the longer serving staff which was reassuring. Despite being very busy we were shown immediately to our pre-booked table and offered... More

As ever, we had a delicious curry care of Mr Ali and staff. Great flavour, great service, great atmosphere what more can you ask for. Well worth a visit to Darwen's number 1 restaurant.
