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 5 out of 5 star hygiene rating.

This is the best restaurant in Hull. The service is super and the food is amazing. Do not judge a book by its cover. The restaurant layout is very traditional and if you have ever been to Asia you'd know this is almost a replica of the restaurants. The chef is great and waitress was superb. Will be returning.

Visited with my other half for a late dinner.

the 3 taster dishes for £11 is stunning value. My only issue is that sometimes the beef rendang can sometimes be a bit tough but I always order it because it is simply delicious. that with Java curry is a winner.

Thank you very much Ella J for taking time to review us and much appreciated. You must know us fairly well as we gather from your comments. We endeavor to cook our rendang as tender as possible.

Nestled within the scores of restaurants that Princes Avenue has to offer, we decided to visit Tropicana based on Tripadvisor reviews. We were certainly not left disappointed! Entering the restaurant, we were greeted by a calm and quaint atmosphere with decor to match. Of note, the music selection was particularly pleasing; a refreshing mix of acoustic covers and calm pop.... More

I've been to the Tropicana quite a few times, and have never been disappointed. The food is great, and the service very friendly. This time the chef was having to manage on his own, as the waitress was sick, but he was really apologetic that it would be a little bit slower than normal. In fact, he did a great... More
