Best meal I've ever had

The food and the service were outstanding. I'm serious! The server recommended several dishes that were incredible. I can't recommend this restaurant enough! Service was excellent.

Shaurya and Sapan from Samudra speciality restaurant treated us like royalty. They were very courteous, in fact, when I was delayed for the reservation, they called me to confirm/hold the table. Each of the dishes were served with care and attention. They also took the time to patiently explain about the items, preparations, etc. This was a first time to... More

Our recent anniversary dinner at Samudra has to be one of our best dining experiences ever (including our 8yr stay in Chicago). The food was exotic- with great flavours and textures- the fish being cooked to perfection. We went purely by the staff recommendations & were absolutely blown away. The signature fish dish and the seafood platter were our pick... More

The Samudra, headed by Sapan and with Chef Krishna churning out amazing delectable dishes is a gem of a restaurant. It's unique location with splendid views of the greenery by the poolside adds to your experience. A marvellous place to dine !

I was last in Samudra restaurant with my partner Sanal and we enjoyed an excellent experience. I was not knowing what to order and I was surprised by the way Chef Krishna has helped me out with the menu card. We ordered a good selection of seasonal fish and other side dishes. The whole was amazing and well composed. It... More

I was staying at the Trident hotel and visited this restaurant I a few occasions. On each visit Sapan made me feel very welcome. Being a fairly unadventurous eater Sapan and his lovely chef took the time to ask what kind of things I liked and chose delicious dishes for me which I would never have chosen myself. Being in...
