This Persian-Iranian restaurant in Sydney’s Baulkham Hills derives its name from the ancient Persian goddess of love, and offers diners the taste of Persia. All this adds up to Anais being the place for authentic Persian cuisine, complete with friendly service, waterfront views from the restaurant’s Brookhollow Avenue location, and a hookah and shisha lounge to cap off your meal. Fully licensed, Anais lets diners bring their own bottle or order up a storm from the fully-stocked bar.
We enjoyed our meal here. The food was very tasty with losts to choose from. The restaurant was tucked away in an office building and situated overlooking a little lake and bush area. Very beautiful at night. The service on the night was a little slow. We will try it again.
Hi, I hope no 6 is the maximum :) , the dining experience was excellent, both service and food . Food was delicious and plenty. We will be back and will be recommending it to friends. Thank you !!!
Anais is packed from Tuesday through to Friday, from noon until 3pm, with diners taking advantage of this Sydney Persian restaurant’s special lunch menu. Dining in at Anais Brookhollow Avenue restaurant (in the AV Jennings building opposite the Baulkham Hills post office), guests can grab Persian-style lamb burgers, Shirazi lamb salads, the ouse Anais chicken salad and a range of Iranian curries and rice dishes for incredibly good prices. The ghorme sabzi or the gheimeh badjeman are two lamb based dishes that come highly recommended, while vegetarians will love the gharch, buttons mushrooms sauteed with lentils, potatoes, dried Persian lime and cumin in a saffron-infused tomato sauce.
If you’re booking Anais for an evening dinner sitting, come a little early and order up one of this Baulkham Hills Persian restaurant’s signature cocktails. The Fereshteh is an crisp and refreshing concoction based on Green Fairy absinth with cucumber, fresh mint, lime and soda, while the Setareh builds on Smirnoff vodka with pomegranate and sour cherry for a long drink with a distinctive Iranian influence. As for the dinner offering itself, expect sumac-seasoned meats and a strong focus on the purity of each ingredients’ characteristics. Plus, Iranian and Persian cuisine is mostly gluten-free! From social, generous meze platters to kebabs cooked on an open charcoal fire, Anais offers some of the best Persian food in Sydney.
