Description: Taman Ria Tropicana opens onto Princes Avenue in Hull. We have some outdoor seating and indoors there are 3 main restaurant areas. We have an open kitchen so you can see the chef at work, and smell the delicious dishes before they even get to you and we have a well stocked bar which includes many Asian bottled beers. The restaurant is decorated with traditional ornaments and authentic batik, finished off with a few quirks here and there. To the back of the restaurant are the 'Ladies' and 'Gents', including a seperate spacious easy-access toilet suitable for wheelchair users and we have also just received a 4 out of 5 star hygiene rating.

We visited on a Saturday night and were a little reluctant when we first entered and we were the only people in the restaurant; once we ordered though it began to get busier and the atmosphere picked up. We ordered a mixed starter platter along with a trio of Malaysian curries, the food was lovely and it was so nice... More

It is not a "stir fry" dish; as you described in strips and stir fried. We do a" chicken stir fry" but... More

Went to Tropicana on the advice of some friends and wasn't disappointed. The decor is quite plain and simple and the restaurant is small and intimate but the food was lovely. Had the taster meal (3x curry and rice). There was three of us and we were the only ones in the restaurant. The food did take some time to... More

Went here on Saturday with my partner, we ordered a trio of Malaysian curries with rice. It was beautiful! And at a reasonable price too. The place is lovely decorated, in traditional Malaysian antique style, and a candle lit small space is perfect. The staff were professional, real good honest food. Would thoroughly recommend.

Great restaurant, I've been about 6 times. We always go for the taster menu and share. Meals and wine comes to about £35.

This was my second visit to this restaurant, I'd forgotten how lovely the food was. There were 6 of us celebrating my friend's birthday. The service was excellent, 2 young men who were very efficient and friendly. Most of us had the satay for starters, it was delicious, had real kick to it. I opted for the £11 menu that... More

Visited with a business colleague on a Wednesday evening and both sampled the 3 dishes for £11 offer on the main menu. Food was really good - especially the beef rendang - and the staff were great. One of those places I've been meaning to visit for ages and I'm glad I finally did!
