On Wednesday, the 19th of October 2022, Austen Morris Associates’ Senior Partner Jon Holand and Managing Senior Partner James Colclough enjoyed hosting another world-class Private Client Dinner at Anokhi Bar & Grill.
The newest and most talked about restaurant in Shanghai, ‘Anokhi, means ‘rare’ in Hindi. Like the name, Anokhi was borne from a dream to bring world-class Indian dining to the city of Shanghai. Every part of the restaurant resonates with a core theme of ‘Discovery’ – discover modern food from an avant-garde kitchen, innovative dishes, classy décor, and fine wines – all underlined with warm Indian hospitality.
Our evening started with a sparkling reception in the main lounge and bar, – allowing our clients and guests the time to relax and engage with one another before moving to the Chefs table to enjoy a unique 4-course culinary experience of 15 different dishes perfectly paired with wines.
The menu was crafted and perfectly executed by Owner and Chef Jibin Arjunan and his team of gastronomic experts.
We started the meal with an Amuse Bouche- Gol Gappa Gimlet (miniature cocktail), a must, served inventively with a panipuri, a fun start to the feast to follow.
The Entrees consisted of three dishes, and all 3 hit the mark. Not only a feast for the eyes but taste-wise, this was a 10’ Mini Raj Kachori,Achari Paneer Tikka & the Mackrel Tawa Fry.
Next was the Main- A taste of India, Thali (served on one plate). A showstopper of a course consisting of six dishes with accompaniments of various parathas and rice. Too many dishes to mention individually, but the Millionaires Butter Chicken, the Sheekh Kebab and Malabar Beef Roast will undoubtedly have some of our clients and guests making a repeat visit to Anoki very soon.
We finished the evening with a Trio of Desserts; the Motichoor Rabdi Parfait was exquisite, and the Masla Chai Gelato was a welcome cooler.
Everything came together perfectly, from the exquisite venue and its stunning décor to the delectable food and faultless service from Jibin and the Anokhi team- our clients and guests, thoroughly enjoyed themselves, making this Private Client Dinner a genuinely memorable experience.
We look forward to hosting our next Private Client Dinner very soon.
“Warwick Hamilton has, since 2014, been the financial advisor dealing with the proceeds of my UK pension, invested via QROPS in an STM Pension Transfer Plan. I am sure that I am not his biggest client but you would not think so, given the excellent support and service that he gives me. I have been continuously impressed by the way he ensures that these investments are managed to perform well, align with my risk profile; and with his ethical, informative, honest and straightforward way of handling those affairs. I have kept these investments with Warwick despite approaches to change financial advisors because he ensures that I am kept well informed and I trust him.”

“I’ve been always targeted by many financial advisors and International investment groups over the years. I have had one fund with an offshore investment group before which I canceled in 2008 and since then I was uncertain if I should do something again. I met Kirk in 2014 and he kept contact with me over the next few years. In 2017 I thought of investing and starting some fund and I have immediately contacted Kirk since he has left a very strong impression as a competent, pleasant, and very well informed advisor. Now I have a few funds with AMA and I am very happy with the service level, professionalism, and guidance from Kirk. I am very confident that I will reach my future goals.”

“Chad is a pleasure work with, throughout my dealings with him he has always maintained care for our relationship over and above my portfolio. He has ensured our communication and working timelines are met to the highest standard. I’ve found Chad to be very thorough and more than happy to take the time always to keep me updated and continue to answer all questions in a timely and professional manner. He is also very personable and courteous, with a keen attitude to deliver the best service. Chad keeps updated on current market developments and regulations, and his attention to detail and analysis of my portfolio has been most informative and insightful. In my opinion, Chad is a knowledgeable and professional advisor, and I feel comfortable entrusting my international arrangements and overall portfolio management to him. I would happily recommend Chad to others who require assistance regarding their financial planning.”
