Been here for a business dinner this week and was floored by the service. Great job by Dharani, Sai and Sreekumar (hope I remembered the names correctly). There was a slight delay in the food coming to the table, but we didn't feel it so! Keep up the good work guys!!

Visited with family for dinner. Fabulous and tasty sea food. Kerala type dishes like Tawa prawn, lobster, Kerala parota,fish curry and the desert Elaneer Payasam were very tasty. Mutton Biryani was also nice. Atmosphere was also serene and peaceful, as it was a week day. Mostly who stay in the Trident Hotel come there. Recommended for families for once in... More
