Ananta Thai Food Ltd
Wicken Bonhunt, Essex
You'd be hard pressed to find another venue like Ananta. The cuisine is distinctly Thai, whilst the drinks offerings and atmosphere emulate a traditional country pub.
The pub is owned by husband-and-wife team Sergio and Ananta, after whom the venue is named. Sergio runs the front-of-house team, while Ananta is in charge in the kitchen. Recipes have been passed down through her family and include a selection from her grandmother, who was a chef for the royal family in her native Thailand.
There's a regular menu for relaxed dining and a signature dishes menu for those looking for something exceptional. For larger parties, the set menus are a great option. There are also plenty of specials available, which incorporate local offerings to create an intriguing fusion of Thai flavours with British ingredients. Begin with a mixed starter, which offers a flavoursome selection including spring rolls, fishcakes, prawn toast and chicken satay. Next, sample the nutty lamb massaman paired with coconut rice. Alternatively, soft shell crab with sour mango salad proves popular as a starter, and can be followed by the seafood main of sizzling giant king prawns with yellow curry sauce. Afterwards, the chocolate truffle trio is a decadent finale, or for a refreshing alternative, choose from the wide selection of ice creams. Uniquely, the accompanying beverages are those that would usually be found in a traditional pub. Real ales and ciders are on tap, wines hail from Spain and spirits and soft drinks are also available, including a delicious non-alcoholic beer.
Combining high quality, homemade fare with excellent service and a relaxed environment, it's no wonder that first time diners are often transformed into regulars.
Numerous awards have been bestowed upon Ananta. It received the Customer Service Award in the 2013 Essex Life Fine Food and Drink Awards, and also attained a Seal of Approval for Thai Cuisine from Thai Select, which is awarded by Thailand's Ministry of Commerce. It has been acknowledged by CAMRA, and consistently receives positive reviews on TripAdvisor
