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.

We visited for the first time on a Saturday night - we booked ahead and I'm glad that we did as the restaurant has very few tables and most were occupied. All of the tables at the front of the restaurant were full so we were taken to a back room which was empty. This was fine until a large... More

nice friendly staff, expensive drinks and food a little on the bland side, choice is a little limited and the option to taste three different dishes doesn't really work, but the concept is good

Rather than celebrate some good news with a pizza, we decided to give Tropicana a try as it was recommended by a few friends and we live a minutes walk away. There was a large party seated and the hostess said food might be a while, but we didn't mind waiting as the atmosphere was nice (beautiful historic interior lovingly... More

Have been here several times over the years, and every time, the food has been great. The nasi campur is a good option, as you can choose three different dishes with rice. Good service.

Four of us went out for a meal on Princes Avenue and fancied trying somewhere we hadn't been to before. Tropicana was highly recommended by several people so we thought we'd give it try. The restaurant, though not very big, is really lovely and quirky. It is in what used to be The Boar's Nest and had previously been a... More

Starters of Tropicana chicken satay and spicy calamari that we had were lovely, and the mains offered decent value, especially the nasi campur mains of 3 dishes for £11. The star of the show for...
