- TrishnaJugu18Dined on 18/11/2014Thank you for an enjoyable experience The service was attentive and professional without being fussy The ambience was perfect for the occasion The food was of a high quality served with high level of skill and professionalism The variety of vegetarian options could be improved. This was disappointing. There should always be option for the chef to prepare off the menu to delight the consumer.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent lunchlovegoodfoodwineDined on 15/11/2014Lunch Bites menu was excellent, both quality and value - and having no restrictions on the choice of the dishes allowed us to try quite a few! Cooking deserved the Michelin star (unlike some Indian restaurants in London) - bream was perfect - and service was very good. Felt that the wine was overpriced, so it was useful to have a reasonable selection by the carafe.I would recommend this to a friend.
- Surprisingly GoodFoodieDined on 6/11/2014We went to Trishna for lunch and took customers, we had had two days of Indian food tasting as we are in the food industry and were a little jaded and not ravenous to be honest. Décor was modern and clean and the aromas were that of traditional Indian food, we ordered from the lunch bites menu and had 2 dishes each - the food was absolutely outstanding and to say that we were not very hungry after our already eaten Indian breakfast, the contents of the table were soon gone! Seafood Salad, Partridge, Bream and Dal all surpassed our expectations, light modern and packed with flavour, next Tandoori chicken, Lamb Masala, Seafood Biryani and Kerala curry which our Indian colleague raved about - fabulous meal and very authentic but made modernSpecial Features:
- Excellent IndianusfoodiesDined on 3/11/2014This is our third time here and it will not be our last. From the flavourful food to the attentive service, this restaurant knows how to serve.Special Features:
- Great birthdayP1nnerdinnerDined on 27/10/2014This was our third visit and the food was again outstandingly. The service was not quite as good as last time but still very good but the food more than makes up for it. it can be quite noisy, part of the ambience for us but might not even the best place for an intimate dinnerSpecial Features:
- Stunning flavours - Poetry!AndiPDined on 27/10/2014Our starters were both to die for. Prawns that melted in your mouth but burst with flavour, and fabulous soft shell crab. The mains too were excellent, lamb and prawn. No room for dessert. Even the poppadums and dips were bursts of flavour. Nothing hot, it didn't need to be. All the flavours came through, well-balanced and beautifully composed. An artist of cuisineSpecial Features:
- Excellent service and tasty foodDans123Dined on 20/10/2014Overall the ambience was lovely, not too overcrowded and it is located on a quiet road. The food was beautifully presented and very tasty. Really good service and clear descriptions of what you were about to experience during every dish - and every glass of wine that went with it. The attention to detail was exceptional. Well worth a visit.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 19/10/2014Trishna still remains my favourite restaurant, despite the abundant supply of new restaurants in London. The food is always fabulous, crab curry is a must try. I however have only been in the evening and decided to try Sunday lunch. The food was fast and there was an option of an express menu which we mixed with the a la carte and still fantastic. The only disappointment was the service and atmosphere was slightly compromised. The service was far more slap dash and there were lots of young babies (I am not anti children) but as the restaurant is small, it just felt more like a chain restaurant rather than the relaxing escape/treat. So great for families on Sunday lunch but if you want the full experience choose an evening.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Saturday evening dinnerRilkeDined on 18/10/2014Given the location-we expected more if an effort to made to the decor and although the food was very good this was not matched by the service which veered from a very inexperienced waiter assigned to our table and later a better one.We ordered champagne that was served warm and the sommelier tried to strangely defend(there is no defence!)-the quality of food was good but I won't go back as the restaurant didn't justify it's prices.Special Features:
- Decent, but missing the wowkpukDined on 3/10/2014You mustn't try to compare this with it's parent establishment in Mumbai. It's just very, very different. Trishna London offers modern-Indian food, very well prepared and full of flavour. Lunches offer a flexible selection of smaller dishes from which you can choose. It's a relatively small restaurant, so the tables are packed pretty close together. Service is decent, but can be a little hectic at busy times. Unfortunately, with the huge competition available and the ever-increasing quality of the up-market Indian restaurants, Trishna falls short in being exceptional or offering value for money. The price is fair, but just that. Whether you'll be buzzing for a return visit or not remains to be seen.Special Features:
- Great Food, Great PlacemarkDined on 28/9/2014If you're looking for somewhere really nice to eat in good surroundings with excellent service then you cant go to far wrong with Trishna.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Stylish traditional indian cuisinegreedygregorDined on 26/9/2014The staff were as slick and stylish as the decor- the food was subtly flavoured in rustic yet almost colonial style. The staff were very accomodating. I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough.Special Features:
- nycOpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 23/9/2014we are in india for several months each year we were so looking forward to dinner here having been to trishna in mumbai many times we like it alright but were disappointed with the quality given price and comparable places in london
- Best Indian Food of my lifehlmandhpDined on 22/9/2014I came here with my girlfriend for our two year anniversary, and went for the seven course food and wine pairing option. The sommelier and the chef clearly know their trades extremely well, and worked together to make an amazing meal. The explanations of the reasons for why a specific wine was chosen for the specific course was very good and demonstrated an extraordinary level of care/service and attention to detail when putting together the menu. For something different to the traditional modern european cuisine, and for special occasions, I cannot recommend the restaurant enough.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Delicious foodSimonMissendenDined on 19/9/2014I went to Trishna with two friends. We chose the 5 course tasting menu with the accompanying flight of wine. The food was outstanding and the wines were a lovely complement. Top dish for me was a Tandoori Salmon with a dill cream, though the lamb curry for our main course was succulent and delicious. On arrival we moved table as the more modern part of the restaurant was very noisy and hard to hear one another - a problem with the acoustics rather than a reflection on the other diners. We were moved to another table in the other half of the restaurant which could benefit from a bit of a makeover. We had to ask them to slow down the delivery of dishes - maybe a reflection of their normal business diner who needs to get a move on.Special Features:
- UnderwhelmingNYCHOTPILOTDined on 18/9/2014Both food and service is just about average. While all very polite but tend to swarm over guests. Ordered 1/2 bottle of wine and requested time before main course. A minute later a waiter came by asking me if I was ready. Followed by one more 2mts later! If the purpose was to turn the table for the next guest it did not make sense as I was 30 minutes early. Earlier I had called to ask if I could come 30mts late and was told that it was fine provided I left by 8 as the table had been booked for 8:15 which got me to the restaurant early. When I did order the main course - prawn kerala style - it came out in less than five minutes! It had a distinctively non-fresh taste to it.
- Brilliant lunch option for clientsshamusDined on 15/9/2014Had the set express lunch at £18 each which was amazing value and included a glass of lovely Indian wine chosen by the Somelier to match the food. Had the haldi squid which was delightful in a very light crispy batter - cooked to perfection. Guest had the aloo chat - which one of the best I have ever tasted. For main course we had the lamb and prawns - both packed full of flavours and not oily like most other indian restaurants. Guest totally loved the food and I would definitely recommend it to anyone.Special Features:
- good menu and deal at lunchMonkeyVIPDined on 12/9/2014good value for money with the exprees lunch. and also fair prices for inclusive of wine. good flavours and good varied menu disappointing coffeeSpecial Features:
- ACDCVIPDined on 12/9/2014I'm still not sure about the new decor but the food remains excellent. The lunch time menus offer superb value. The only downside is that most dishes are spicy so if you cannot take any degree of chilli in your food then be warned.I would recommend this to a friend.
- Indian treatPeteDined on 1/9/2014First time I've tried the early evening menu at Trishna, and very pleased. Excellent dishes, and even showed the flexibility to prepare one of our favourites from the 'lunch bites' menu. Impeccable service as always, and good value by London standards.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great tasting menurs5000Dined on 30/8/2014I went with friends, all had the 7 course tasting menu and I had the seafood tasting menu. Great variety of food, good serviceSpecial Features:
- A great IndianSquirrelDined on 24/8/2014Had 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.Special Features:
- Generally GoodDaveCDined on 24/8/2014Food 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!Special Features:
- WonderfullzonDined on 23/8/2014Amazing , interesting food , lovely service and ambience . Great value for what it is . Will definitely be returningSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Too Loud but good foodDuck21Dined on 22/8/2014Food 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.I would recommend this to a friend.
- Hail TrishnaCavyVIPDined on 21/8/2014Beautiful food and wine as ever - Indian food like you have never had it. Especially liked the new lunch menu.Special Features:
- Great for special occasionsPegertegDined on 7/8/2014Whenever 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.Special Features:
- GoodNJSinlondonDined on 4/8/2014Food 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.Special Features:
- Very good table.TrevigianoVIPDined on 3/8/2014Wondeful Indian kitchen, perfectly cooked in a simple place.Special Features:
- TrishnaeddieDined on 29/7/2014We 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!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- sloppyjoeDined on 23/7/2014Food and ambience delightful. Service good, and especially thoughtful in respect of the two young children in our party.Special Features:
- Very Good againThePirateDined on 20/7/2014A 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 likedSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Perfectly prepared & presentedsloknitrDined on 16/7/2014We 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great valueKW12Dined on 11/7/2014Have been before and enjoyed excellent food and wine. The lunch deal - three dishes plus glass of wine for £15 - was amazing value. Would definitely recommend.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Outstanding Express LunchJoannaVVIPDined on 9/7/2014For 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.Special Features:
- LunchCurryfanDined on 8/7/2014The lab curry and the fish dishes were excellent. Some of the starters on the lunch menu were a bit disappointing. The wine chosen by the carafe was excellent.
- ttttDined on 6/7/2014An excellent experience. The menu was inventive, balanced and well-designed.Special Features:
- Find another Indian restaurant.skitaosDined on 4/7/2014For the price, we thought it was just okay. It was an over-the-top expensive experience. Having eaten at Babylon Roof Gardens and Chor Bizarre within the same 4 days, this restaurant lacked in comparison,both food-wise and service-wise.
- A bit disappointingBobbimidnightDined on 2/7/2014We had the five course set menu. It was fine but less innovative than expected. Very noisy, however. Expensive as well.Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 29/6/2014i 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.
