Description: 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 decided to eat at Taman Ria as my boyfriend is leaving to go to Afghan so we wanted somewhere with good food that wouldn't disappoint us in any way. The food was unbelievable and great value for money, there was plenty of vegetarian options for myself too which is a bonus. We will definitely be returning and recommending to friends. Thanks for helping us give a perfect send off.

“Fantastic night had by all”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

I recommended Taman Ria for our works Christmas party/meal.Therefore I was very apprehensive as to what the rest of the party might think. I needn't have worried. The food was (as usual) superb. We all opted for the Christmas menu: After the complimentary prawn crackers. We had the mixed starters - This was delightful and very filling. I followed this with the main course of Nasi Campur; a choice of three different dishes - I had the Java chicken curry, beef rendang and king prawn sambal, all served with fried rice (boiled is available) and a side salad. As the group are known for their munchie escapades I ordered a couple of naan breads, the chilli bread is hot! I have eaten with these people for the last 15yrs and I have honestly never seen them so pleased with their food. They literally cleared the table. Chocolate Fudge cake was delicious, but very hard to force down after such a fulfilling meal. Vince as usual was the perfect host and his very hard working staff are credit to the place.
A wonderful evening had by all and we are looking forward to going again. Col,Chris and the gang.

“A hidden gem waiting to be discovered!”
Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

I have been meaning to try this place out for ages and I now can't believe I waited so long! There were two of us eating and we both had the Nasi campur - three smaller dishes served with rice. Each dish was delicious and well cooked and seasoned. The chef really knows his food! Please don't get hung up on the decor! A person who loves food knows that decor doesn't guarantee good food - that's the same the world over. The authentic, flavour packed food speaks for itself and I am already planning my next visit in order to try more dishes. The service can be a bit slow but we were not in a rush so did affect us and allowed us time to relax and enjoy the complimentary prawn crackers which came with a zingy sweet chilli sauce. I would throughly reccomend here!

Thank you Hattie for comments and support. We cook one order at a time and sometimes its inevitable that it can cause a bit of delay if several tables came in at the same time...we apply the first come first serve policy. We endeavor to avoid such situation..and thankfully we have customers like you, patient and understanding. We are a small family restaurant really. Thank you again. VL-TRT

“A Hidden Gem!”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

What a pleasant surprise, decided after seeing some really good reviews that my friend and I would give this restaurant a try last night. Wow, am so pleased we did!! The food is really nice. We went for the 3 course Xmas menu at £14.00 a head, there were several choices for each course and it didn't disappoint. The food was really nicely presented and extremely tasty. The waitress was helpful and friendly and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. I was so impressed will definitely be booking again very soon. If you fancy trying some different cuisine then go and give this place a try I'm sure you won't be disappointed with the food!

“Why haven't I been here before?”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

I have lived near to this restaurant for over 5 years yet haven't ever ventured in- I have been missing out. The staff greet you in a very friendly way and make you really feel welcome. The food is simply delicious, and they have an excellent taster menu which is really great value for money. I will definitely be visiting again!
