Great satays ... but that's about it. My daughter and I ordered off the lunch menu. She had pineapple fried rice and I had the beef curry with ginger rice. Her pineapple rice was bland, so was my ginger rice. My beef curry came in a tiny bowl with about 5 small lumps of fatty, chewy beef brisket. The sauce... More

My opinion is the food is not bad but not great. Part of the reason is focus. Are they Malaysian, Thai, or Indonesian. The service is good. We had a beef curry and pad Thai.

We went there for dinner and overall we are not impressed by the food. We ordered the combination menu as we wanted to sample few meals. I ordered Combination C: Rasa Sayang Seafood Bonanza and husband ordered Combination D: Daulat Tuanku Special. Nothing really stands out from what we ordered. It's not bad, but it didn't make us put this... More

Been here a few times now. First time was ok, but found the food less enjoyable with each visit. This evening hit rock bottom. The home style chicken was oily and slimey, and the green beans were truly vile. They were coated In a layer of grease and sprinkled with what looked like fried maggots! It made me gag. The... More

We had a number of dishes that we enjoyed immensely. Great favours that made each dish unique. We particularly liked the seafood coconut rice, satays, prana roti, beef rendang and desserts. Good recommendations from staff and attentiveness to our table. Kevin was our server. Will return there again when we are in town.

Tropika has always been good. Although I do miss the Aberdeen mall location. This place is always busy. And service is not always good. But the food is so delicious. I love the satays. Beef is the best between chicken and pork. The hainese chicken is good but some may not like cold chicken. And there isn't much meat. But... More

The food there is just amazing. You have to try the crab or the seafood in general in this restaurant. It is just incredibly tasty. It is different than any other place i have ever been to. Going there at least once is a must !!

We visited this restaurant for a dinner thinking that it would be just the same like other Thai /Chinese restaurants...Not quite! We ordered a Seafood Singapore fried rice noodles (SSFRN). It was different from other Chinese SSFRN we had before. It was a quite sweet with lot of fish sauce in it but didn't have curry powder in it. However,... More
