About Us

Welcome to Anise, a recently launched, modern Asian restaurant located on Symonds Street in Auckland. Independently owned by culinary visionaries Sid and Chand Sahrawat, this 70-seater establishment is dedicated to serving delectable pan-Asian dishes crafted for the joy of sharing.

Anise’s debut menu, crafted for sharing, offers an array of snacks, entrées, mains, and desserts, showcasing our take on modern Asian cuisine. Check out our sample menu here.

The French Café has moved to the other side of our courtyard and will continue to deliver the same relaxed fine dining experience but now in a more intimate setting. Learn more about this transition on The French Café’s website here (hyperlink).

Sid and Chand Sahrawat are behind some of Auckland’s lauded restaurants; The French Café (3 hats), modern Indian bar and eatery KOL in Ponsonby (two hats) and oversee Cassia at SkyCity (two hats).
