Anise Review

Book a table at Anise

Top 10 things you need to know about Anise bar:

1) I’m not going to India anytime soon. Even if I wanted to, I’m kinda broke. Not even kinda, just broke. You’re just like me. You’re not going to India anytime soon either, but that’s OK.

2) Anise, daughter of Cinnamon Kitchen, is here instead. Beautifully chilled. Wondrously exotic. Indian flavour. Indian behaviour. Savour the nights when you want more than a takeaway. Savour getting dressed up and journeying behind Liverpool Street, where only smart people know where to sink their souls into the warmth of Indian culture.

3) You should know firstly that Anise sits in Devonshire Square, which looks like outside-inside and is hella chic. Win. It shelters you from the rain. More win. If you’re on a date, things are looking up and if you’re here with your family then by now they should be in awe. Savour that sweet silence for a few minutes.

4) Because it’s a bar, let’s focus on the date night scenario. Everything is about to become less uncomfortable.

5) Sit on the plush seats and pick up a menu whilst you think about what to say. If you want to remain demure whilst eating, order the Kerala fried chicken. Bite-size but a perfect start to the night. Laugh over a Devonshire Express cocktail. A thumping mix of Barcardi, coffee and cardamom.

6) Snuggle closer and show him/her that you can get your hands dirty. Reach across the table and caress…the duck skewers. Good job. Don’t forget the refreshing coriander dip.

7) Sip the long, perfectly balanced cocktails, which embrace the beauty of Asian spices. If you want to reach in for a kiss, refresh your mouth first with the basil lemonade cocktail. Herby, sweet and sour. Gold.

8) Time to get fiery but don’t mention embarrassing university stories full of drunken fire stunts. Talk about how sizzling these amazing chicken wings are. Fan your lips. It brings attention to the mouth. Hot. Plus, how damn good are these wings? Mmm.

9) By now you’ve enjoyed the tall peach cocktail - everything is much more racy when you’re merry - and the simple nature of the potato wedges that were kicked up seven notches by some masala seasoning. Oh yes.

10) By now there’s only one question; shall we go next door to Cinnamon Kitchen for more food or go somewhere else? Decisions, decisions.
