    This 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 dinner

    Our 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 cuisine

    Overall 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.

    Trishna 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.

    Given 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.

    You 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.

    I 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.

    I 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.

    Both 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.

    Had 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
