Really good food - the mixed plate of starters is really good value and excellent food. Mains are just as good and the restaurant is set in an old shop - maybe a butchers or fishmongers as it still has all of the old shop rails and tiles. Lovely staff and lovely food.

We used to go to this restaurant lots of times when it was situated across the road but on our last visit at the present location we were put off by poor service. Things had definitely improved last Saturday night and the service was excellent. Try the mixed starters for two and then pick your three favourite small dishes to... More

My favourite restuarant in Hull. Food is wonderful, freshly cooked (so you may have a wait) but all good things are worth waiting for. Chill with a bottle of wine and nibble on prawn crackers and chilli sauce, you wont be disappointed.The mee laksa soup takes your breath away in more ways than one, and the beef rendang is superb....

My husband and I love Trpicana's food. My husband and I have been eating at Tropicana for over 20 years. My favourite is Vinces satay sauce. I love Malayan food and have tried others, but none has ever beaten Vinces. Thankyou Vince and your team of lovely staff x

As a Malaysian I think that the food served is the most authentic food outside my country. Lovely small restaurant intimate and excellent value for money. I particularly like the options of to choose 3 small dishes (Nasi Campur for £11). Love the beef Rendang, chicken satay, seafood Masak Asam Pedas. It's a special place for me !
