Visited many times, excellent food and service. Chef Singh and Gobu are brilliant. I recommend ordering off menu if you fancy something special. Prices are good, but be careful if you have alcoholic beverages as they are expensive after the local taxes are added.

Been here for a business dinner this week and was floored by the service. Great job by Dharani, Sai and Sreekumar (hope I remembered the names correctly). There was a slight delay in the food coming to the table, but we didn't feel it so! Keep up the good work guys!!

Being a north Indian was not sure about the veg south Indian options but the hostess recommended the Samudra special daal and veg curry with Appam. They came with pickles. The food was brilliant. Definitely try the daal. Apart from food Trident restaurants... More
