"The crab curry is buttery and delicious, though not as eye-bulgingly gorgeous as I remember it in the gateway to India, and like all of the dishes rather parsimonious, difficult to share with the grinning gluttony that should be the accompaniment to Indian food." READ REVIEW

"Ajwaini salmon tikka on carom seed and dill raita was rare and sumptuous. Gilafi duck seekh kebab with green chilli and spiced pineapple was a lovely fatty plate of decadence. The shrimp in ginger with smoked chilli chutney was furiously fiery." READ REVIEW

"I'll say again, an operation like this you just can't fake - there is heart here, and intelligence, and real, honest-to-goodness, gobsmacking talent from everyone involved with the place. Trishna is the real deal." READ REVIEW

"Squid pakora in rice flour tastes solely of those two ingredients; a witty take on fish and chips – Isle Of Wight plaice with crushed peas and mint – is overfried and underpowered." READ REVIEW

"My advice is find a cheap flight to Mumbai (Jet Airways is good) and go to Trishna there. The service won’t be so polite, there is no Gruner Veltliner on the wine list, but the food is worth it." READ REVIEW
