The food here is great. Authentic Indian food and deserts. The ambience is also effective in making you think that you just stepped into a little corner of India. It's a very cosy place to have a wonderful authentic Indian dining experience. Prices are reasonable. Parking is limited in front of the building but street parking is available.

Delicious food. All the food here is authentic and tastes comparable to India, except.......the biryani. It clearly contains no saffron strands. (Saffron is NOT turmeric). I can understand the reason, since saffron is hideously expensive, but not including it changes the flavour profile so much as to render the biryani unrecognisable.

Great dining experiences here over the past 4 months my family and I have had absolutely fantastic food here! On the 3 visits there, and 1 take away, we have not been disappointed with the food at all! The service is usually good with the wait staff knowing the menu perfectly so recommendations are usually spot on! Their wine selection... More

I took my family to this restaurant a few times. We love the taste of the authentic Indian food.. The curried lamb is superb. They also have a sweet shop with authentic Indian sweets. We tried all of them.I recommend it to everyone who want to try a good East Indian meal.

Palki's restaurant has become a landmark in the twin-island republic. Its delectable mouth-watering dishes are favourites amongst all religions and ethnicities. Although the usual fare of classic dishes are superb, the hakka menu is filled with hidden gems. My favourite dessert is ras malai but the diverse array of sweets is outstanding.

Always a good experience. Unmatched vegetarian biriyani. Great dining experience and the waitresses are very helpful in explaining the dishes that you may not understand. All in all it's been a place that I keep returning to. Haven't tried their Hakka dishes but plan to soon.

The Food is consistently good and authentic ( as close as I can remember), service is satisfactory to good. The décor is elaborate and attractive. However, parking is limited to 3 or 4 vehicles. Others have to park... More

This restaurant is probably the only authentic Indian restaurant in San Fernando, so with no competition the menu prices are more than you would pay elsewhere such as Chaguanas. The food offered is decent, the service is ok but a bit slow- be patient after you order, it takes a while. Security is visible as you may be offered street... More

Food was so good. I had only vegetarian and it was really delicious. Service was so poor though. I asked a waiter to take a picture and she ignored me. The last server that took my check was pleasant but the server who brought the food was sour.
