A delicious lunch

Quirky fun decor. Prompt and efficient service which is unusual for this neck of the woods. Chilled beer glasses, well presented cocktails. Great authentic Indian dishes. Best we've had in Trinidad. Staff went extra mile sorting taxi for us too. Nice people, outstanding food.

Had lunch mid week with a friend. They offered a special of the day which looked quite appetizing and lots so we decided to go a la carte. That was a bit of a mistake because I can see those who ordered the special were being served much quicker than us with our Lamb Korma and Aloo Gobi with Basmati... More

The food is as authentic Indian as you can get anywhere in the world. The food and atmosphere gives you true flavor of India. Always a pleasure dining here.

My family and I dine at Palki's on Saturday for my birthday and the food was amazing. First time we tried the spicy garlic wantons and it's truly an appetizer to try again. As usual we always have the paneer butter tika massala and the taste has never changed - it's my favorite overall. Our waiter encouraged us to try... More

The decor is so tacky it's funny but the food is excellent. Service is a bit slow so don't come here if you're in a rush. They have two prix fixé menus for lunch, one vegetarian. The non vegetarian is highly recommended and, in my opinion, enough for two persons.

Delicious authentic East Indian food, good service and warm comfortable ambience. The accomodations cater to couples, families or friends. This is my favourate East Indian restaurent in Trinidad.There is a wide menu with a lot of appitizers so you could just have drinks and appitizers although there is not much accomodation at the bar area. There are both regular deserts... More

The food was delicious, the staff offered great suggestions. Servings are generous. The lamb was soooo good.Parking or lack thereof is a bit of a pain, but it works out somehow..my problem with this place is that the service is not consistent, sometimes good sometimes horrible

When I came with my family to Palki Restaurant for lunch, I didn't know what to expect. But when I arrived inside the building, I was awestruck by what I saw. Inside was a wealth of Indian culture that I've never seen before from the decorations to the overall design, and that didn't include the Christmas decorations. The staff was... More

Visited with my wife and found the food to be simply excellent. The surroundings was very nice and staff was helpful and nice. Only thing is that it took some time before we got the nan bread after receiving the tandoori chicken. But the food was very nice, and brought the rest home 😊

Have been going to Palki's quite regularly and I am never disappointed in the presentation and taste of the food. The Servers however, need to be a bit more professional. We asked for Brandon (a server who we deal with on a regular basis), and was given information on the guys personal life and troubles. I thought that this was... More
