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.

Lovely food and lovely venue

Visited with my other half for a late dinner. The other half has been many times with his cinema buddy and I was curious to see what it was like, as I avoid Princes Avenue due to its saturation of poor eateries and vast drinkers! I was not disappointed . The food was wonderful, really tasty and a... read more

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. Sometimes the beef may have been sliced slightly thicker than others...but we try to make good as possible. Your review is very constructive... More

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

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
