If you're looking for good authentic Indian food in San Fernando this is the place. I've been to Palkis several times and I thoroughly enjoy the food. The service is always good and the staff are every friendly. I also regularly get take away (at least twice a month. No complaints about this place!

I had dinner here a couple times and while the food is always good, it is not worth the horrible service. My most recent meal here could very well be my last. Not only did the food take an hour to be prepared when the restaurant wasn't very busy but I waited for my bill for 25 minutes after asking... More

This is perhaps the best indian restaurant in Trinidad. The food is delicious and you have the option of toning down the spice level which is always great. The servers were quite helpful and tell you in advance which meals can be shared between two persons, which I haven't really seen in many restaurants. The ambiance is quite cosy and... More

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.

I have been a few times with friends and family. My last visit was in the first week of April with co-workers. 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
