Trishna Restaurant Review, London

Another double date and this time I booked a table at the Michelin starred Trishna Restaurant in Marylebone. Trishna is a hidden away restaurant and the sister restaurant of Gymkhana.

On arrival the restaurant is small, very narrow with little walking space however it was still busy, we were then guided to our table which was by the entrance door.

Menus were given and we were intrigued by the mix of flavours and couldn’t wait to get eating. To start with we ordered some cocktails I opted for the Trishna Thirst; old monk rum mixed with fresh mint, Indian lemons, ginger, spiced sugar and fresh passion fruit puree, other diners had the gin and tonic balloons presented in a steal glass and a rose punch; ketel one vodka shaken with rose and cardamom syrup, topped up with soda, the drinks were delicious. A basket of poppadoms was also presented with a selection of three different chutneys.

For starters the following vegetarian dishes were selected; Aloo Chat with potato, masala chickpea, tamarind, sweet yoghurt presented in an edible basket and Paneer Tikka Anardana with fried onion, mint, corn and a pomegranate chat. Both dishes were delicious, especially the aloo chat with the edible basket.

The non-veg starters included; Kolhapuri Jheena; shrimp with ginger, smoked chilli chutney. Gilafi Duck Seekh Kebab with green chilli, spiced pineapple chutney, Tandoori Lamb Chops and Lemon Chicken Chops with lemongrass, lime leaves, pressed rice and peanut chutney. By this time we were in a food coma, we didn’t realise the portions would be as filling as they were but it was all so worth it especially the duck kebabs they were so tasty.

Mains followed which included Andhra Lamb Masala, Palak Paneer and Dorset Brown Crab. The lamb just hit the spot it and tasted homemade, however the crab curry wasn’t great and because we hadn’t touched it we were not charged for it which was a nice gesture.

We were having such a good time at Trishna that we didn’t want the night to end. So of course we couldn’t say no to dessert so shared the Chocolate Chikki; a pista-cashew chikki with cardamom kulfi, and it was a-mazing. I must say Trishna was a great experience, staff, service, food was all exceptional and the company was great too, I would highly recommend it.
