Great food, great ambience, awesome service. The variety is mind boggling, never leave without trying the soups. Rice pudding is out of this world. We usually go twice in a week when visiting Trinidad for work.

Traditional Indian food. Delicious but service spoilt the experience. Waited over an hour for food to come. When it did dishes didn't come together. Last meat dish came after everyone had finished eating.

This restaurant serves traditional Indian cuisine as well as Chinese (Hakka) dishes. Everything there is delicious and they state the level of hotness of the dish on the menu so that you can make suitable choices depending on your palate. The staff is very helpful and willing to explain how the dishes are prepared or what ingredients are in it.... More

If you love Indian food then Palki's the place to visit. The food is very tasty. Some of the dishes are quite spicy but there are others you can choose from if you are not a pepper lover.

Tasty food, optimal prices and good service. Palki restaurant is interesting place in San Fernando. The interior in the Indian style, but a little darkish. I would add more light from the windows

I have always been a fan of Palki and recall visiting this restaurant in earlier days, and having pleasant experiences. Recently however, I have found that the food taste has been somewhat inconsistent. ....not sure if there was a change of chefs...and perhaps the reason for this. I would however recommend the Paneer Tikka. Service from the wait staff also... More

After making a reservation the previous day, my guests and I arrived to a semi packed restaurant but was seated to our table in a cordial manner. After ten minutes of receiving our menus no one came to our table. The servers seemed flustered and went up and down the corridor. We tried countless times to get their attention but... More
