    Had the tasting menu here one Sunday evening. The food was pretty good. The tiger prawn curry was nothing special but tasty enough - just not tiger prawns, and a bit too creamy. Duck kebab - difficult to tell it was duck, but it was tasty. Could have done with being a wee bit smaller in order to leave space for the rest of the meal, esp the cardamom kheer which was really delicious.

    Food was good, but not as good as I hoped. KERALA JHEENGA CURRY was nicely balanced taste wise, but the prawns were tiny.BHARLI VANGI was great. TULSI SCALLOPS were a little bland, but perfectly cooked. The TANDOORI LAMB CHOPS were brilliant. I have to say, my original intent was to have the tasting menu, however our friends chose ala carte. I may return to try the tasting menu. I misread the wine menu, the wines by the glass have three prices (increasing), I assumed the third price was for a bottle. So therefore was a little shocked that the actual bottle price for a Greek Viognier was 40 instead of 25..I expressed a little annoyance, and the maitre d' 'almost' offered to adjust the bill, He didn't though! My mistake though!

    Food was lovely but our ears were ringing when we left the restaurant as it was very loud with no muffling of acoustics in the room we were sitting. Unfortunately this meant we couldn't enjoy our evening out and left the restaurant far earlier than we would have if we could converse with each other. Apparently, they will be addressing the problem later this year though. Another thing to take note of is the food portions. They are quite large so be wary of over-ordering.

    Whenever my work colleagues want to have a sit down and lovely meal for a special occasion we always think of Trishna. The food and the service in this restaurant is outstanding and we always enjoy our time there. The sea bream starter is a particular favourite amongst our group, but for me the Kori Gassi [chicken drumsticks, Mangalorean spices, coconut] is my ideal choice.

    Food was good. If I hadn't expected Michelin, it would have been better. Expensive. Tasting menu is large. We could have shared one or gotten one and an alacarte dish. Liked appetizers more than main.

    We had an amazing special meal at Trishna. The 'early evening' menu was delicious (there were 2 of us so we had every option!) and more than enough for us both. It was varied and interesting with each dish a true speciality. We loved the whole experience. Thanks!

    A most enjoyable Sunday lunch in a buzzy ambience. The Trishna Seafood salad was as great as last time being a wonderful blend of flavours and textures. So was the wonderful Chilean pinot noir, served slightly chilled on a very warm day. The place had a nice feel to it with the front opened up on a summer's afternoon and it was deservedly busy. The one downside was that I had a bit of a stand off with the waiter when he tried to seat us at the worst table in the restaurant and I refused, anyway the manager got involved and all ended well. The main course and dessert were enjoyable too with their distinct southern Indian taste. I don't know how I managed 4 courses last time, 3 sufficed and with some left overs for my dog :-), which he liked

    We had the early evening menu prix fixe - 4 courses, 2 choices for each course. Among the three of us, we had the entire menu. Everything was beautifully prepared and presented. Most of the dishes were fairly spicy, so be prepared for that. There are little dishes of chutneys and /or yogurts to go with each course. Even though we were the early sitting, it was a leisurely, European service. Everything was delicious, but my favorite course was the Aloo Chat starter. The Cardamom Kheer was a lovely ending to the meal - kind of a rice pudding, with fruit and nuts. I brought 2 20 years olds with me and they enjoyed every bite, we did not leave a crumb behind. I look forward to another visit and ordering from the full menu.

  • Outstanding Express Lunch
    JoannaVVIP
    Dined on 9/7/2014
    For a midweek day off work, we wanted somewhere for a tasty lunch to start a busy afternoon. For £15, the Express menu allows one to choose from meat, fish or vegetarian, and along with the three small bowls on offer with each menu, there are poppadoms, rice, daal and naan to share, as well as a beer / wine each. This would be good value in a local curry house, but here, we couldn't believe it! The food was absolutely fantastic - it was incredibly tasty and wonderfully presented, with the perfect amount to fill us up for lunch (and we have very healthy appetites!). Overall, I can't recommend this place highly enough - even if one goes for something other than the express lunch, the menu looked incredible, and the quality of food was top.

    i usually do not review restaurants but i will make an exception here. To be honest the food was ok, which is something i have never said about any michelin starred restaurant, but you could get the same flavour and quality from any indian restaurant. i had the utter pleasure of eating at pollen street social, the holder on one michelin star as does Trishna, and to be honest the difference in class was immense. There is nothing special or exceptional at Trishna and i would advise anyone to go to the cheapest indian take out and save your cash for a better experience, i was very underwhelmed as you can probably tell.

    Excellent food, nice ambiance, and very friendly service. Price as expected. Food not quite at the level for a Michelin star I thought. Peppered quail, lamb, a mango desert, rice pudding, but the bit for me was a Bloody Mary with cardamon, chillie and ginger. Recommended for a visit.

    This is one of our favourite restaurants but getting harder to book a table since it got a Michelin star! Food is excellent but be warned that most dishes are reasonably spicy. Lunch time set menus great value. Not a huge fan of the new decor which we find a bit dark but that's more personal taste. Service is friendly and efficient. Well worth trying.

    We had the 7 course tasting and were overwhelmed with how incredible each course was. We ordered the wine pairing and were pleasantly surprised at the amount of wine offered. The food was perfectly cooked and highly creative. The standout courses were the soft shell crab and quail. We loved how small and quaint the atmosphere was. Indian food in a Michelin star restaurant is something very unique and special. Without hesitation, I would go back and order each and every item.

    Trishna's unassuming outside facade hides an excellent restaurant. The menu specialises in genuine indian style fish dishes and a good range of unusual vegetarian options.. Dishes, like the stuffed aubergine, are properly spiced but not hot and the same applies to other dishes e.g the guinea fowl. Desserts like the carrot halwa come with a twist, an accompanying samosa, and is yummy. The accompanying wine list should suit most tastes. The service is helpful, attentive but discreet. The ambience is acceptable but nothing special. The restaurant has a two hour turnaround policy but they gave us more time. Trishna is not cheap but is good value for that special occasion. We will go back soon.

    We fancied trying somewhere different for lunch and chose Trishna, being relatively recently Michelin star rated. I must say that we all found the Seafood Salad starter and the Pinot Noir to be sublime. Great use of spice and texture. Personally I would have liked the option of some veg with my main. Staff were very friendly in this comfortably relaxed and informal restaurant. We will return and would recommend it as an alternative to Benares.

    Had the lunch set menu which was great value. Very tasty lamb curry and my friend had the shrimp curry, which came with an assortment of tasty sides. The food was excellent but the lunch was marred somewhat by the experience of being in a completely empty restaurant on a Saturday afternoon. Still, can't fault the restaurant for that and combined with the very friendly service, would definitely recommend.

    The food was tasty but the restaurant lacked ambience, even on mothers day. We did have one dish brought out to us which was seafood based when it was supposed to be vegetarian - they did rectify the issue but you would think a restaurant of this calibre would get it right first time around - especially when they knew everyone was vegetarian.

    Took my mum there for her birthday thinking it was a michellin star restaurant and the place looked good on their website. However, when getting there the decor actually just looked like a cafe, deeply disappointed by that. The starters were good but the main was extremely bland and you can't get a specific type of naan bread you wanted, you had to have a mixed basket. The dessert selection was also very poor. Extremely pricey for what you actually get. Whilst the service was good, extremely disappointed!

    We were a party of four and we all chose to eat the lunchtime light-bites. We were more than satiated and were all extremely impressed with the food and the service. Everything chosen was extremely delicious but the star of the meal for me was the bream and Kerala prawn curry. We all agreed we would not hesitate to return.
