Square Meal Review of Trishna ?

Still basking in the glow of an elegant, softening makeover and sibling Gymkhana’s all-conquering success, Michelin-starred Trishna remains a London benchmark for classy Indian food without naff gestures or excessive ceremony. Retro posters sell the subcontinent as an enticing destination, but the same effect is achieved just by sniffing the air in one of the panelled dining rooms. “Delicate” coastal cuisine is the stated focus, with lightly crunchy haldi chipirones (baby squid), spicy soft-shell crab and signature tandoor-cooked fish all impeccably done, but that’s not the only way to go; quail pepper fry with Keralan spices, tandoori lamb chops and stuffed baby aubergine do more than make up the numbers. Service is “extremely professional” (if a tad cool), with a tendency towards upselling – although any irritations can be soothed by a glance at co-owner Sunaina Sethi’s restructured wine list.

    edge and spoon :: Trishna

    On the whole, the Michelin guide is a safe place to consult when looking for somewhere to eat out. For a consistently good meal, forget twos and threes, and stick with the cheaper, humbler one star. Undoubtedly, the ‘little red book’ gives preference to European food, so when South West Indian seafood specialist Trishna gained a star (and subsequent blog appeal) in October 2012 for its foodie fireworks, I felt I ought to give it a try...

  1. It was cold and raining and I’ve just finished sipping on cocktails and gambling away in the hippodrome casino waiting for my table at their restaurant Heliot. Come 5:30pm I suddenly get a call from the hostess telling me that unfortunately the restaurant will not be opening this evening. Very frustrated I go on an aimless walk around Soho looking for an alternative. Thirty minutes later and I’m on Marylebone high street still no better off. Then i stumble upon the recent michelin star awarded Trishna, somewhere I have been meaning to try, so why not now?...

    samphire and salsify :: Trishna

    It’s got to be said, we rarely go out for an Indian. If I remember correctly, the only time we have been for one was at a not so charming Indian restaurant above a pub in Borough High Street, and my gentleman companion ordered an insane amount of food and only ate a third of it.

    When we saw that Trishna (based in Marylebone right next door to Roganic) had recently received a Michelin star, we thought the time had come to try some fine dining Indian style.

    The restaurant was split into two sections and we were seated in the second room which was bright and airy. White painted brickwork with bright...

    The Hungry Porker :: Trishna

    For most of us Indian food means a chicken tikka masala straight from the microwave or with plenty of pints of Cobra in the curry house next to the local pub on a Friday night. It has become one of our national foods. Something we stole, ruined and now churn out across the country in an array of fluorescent colours. This means Indian food and fine dining rarely go hand-in-hand. A few years ago I would have been one of these very people washing down bright orange masala sauce late at night, and if you’d told me I’d be sipping a cocktail and eating lightly spiced soft shell crab in a Michelin star Indian restaurant...

  1. It was Sunday night, and what's the best thing to do on a Sunday? Go for a curry! But this was a curry with a difference.

    In Marylebone, one of London's foodie hubs, lies Trishna, a gorgeous Michelin Star restaurant offering South West Indian cuisine. The restaurant has recently been refurbished and features an informal dining room with blue brick walls, antique mirror walls and slouchy banquettes...

    LONDONcalling :: Trishna

    I always look forward to the new Michelin guide being released. On the whole I trust the judgement of this foodie bible and relish any new entries in the star listings, as in the main I have eaten at most of the existing ones and thrive on the thought of trying new places.There are only five Michelin starred Indian restaurants listed in the last Michelin UK guide so I was pleased to see Trishna listed with a star in the new one.The only thing that I knew about this place was that it is right next door to double Michelin starred chef Simon Rogan's London pop up Roganic. Floating around in my head was some other connection...

    ReneRates :: Trishna – Restaurant Review

    Whenever my father comes to London, we always embark on a culinary journey that is definitely calorie packed, belt burstlingly filling, and always delicious. His passion for food (if possible) even exceeds my own. One of his all-time favourites is Indian, so it was no surprise that for his birthday meal he gave me three Indian restaurant options to choose from – from these three I simply narrowed it down by the menus. The winning selection for the variety and good old favourites on offer was Trishna (it was seeing a delicious looking paneer starter that sold me). Situated on a gorgeous street in the lovely area of...

    [FEAST to the world] :: Trishna, London

    I first heard of Trishna while dining next door in Roganic. A couple of diners came in hoping for a table were sadly turned away but not before they were kindly directed to Trishna by the restaurant manager of Roganic who was singing praises of their food. This has not gone unnoticed and I swiftly added this onto my ever growing must-go list. And then, upon hearing that they were awarded a Michelin star last September, gave me that little added nudge to bump them up the list...

  1. Trishna in London is an offspring of the famous Trishna in Mumbai and in 2008 Karam Sethi and Ravi Deulkar set foot to pamper Londoners with their exciting, fresh and fragrant take on South West Indian Coastal cuisine.

    We (or let’s be correct, the male part of the table) decided for the Koliwada Menu which consisted of the following 7 courses...

Karam Sethi

Young chef/entrepreneur Karam Sethi came from nowhere to open Trishna (the London outpost of a Mumbai seafood legend) in 2008. When the original chef quit, he stepped in – although his culinary training amounted to just one year at the Sheraton New Delhi. Since then, Trishna has won a Michelin star and Karam has also set up hot-ticket Gymkhana with his brother Jyotin. He’s also launched Sethi’s Verandah in Copenhagen, and backed Lyle’s, Bubbledogs and Bao in London.
