Trishna - Not your average curry night

It was Sunday night, and what's the best thing to do on a Sunday? Go for a curry! But this was a curry with a difference.


In Marylebone, one of London's foodie hubs, lies Trishna, a gorgeous Michelin Star restaurant offering South West Indian cuisine. The restaurant has recently been refurbished and features an informal dining room with blue brick walls, antique mirror walls and slouchy banquettes. 



Our waiter bought out some some little poppadoms and dips to enjoy while we browsed the menu.



There were three different flavours of the crispy nibbles which were served with a spicy dip and a mango chutney. 

They were so moorish and, admittedly, devoured very quickly.

For a Michelin star restaurant, Trishna is incredibly reasonably priced. As Mr Silver loves Indian he looked greedily at the menu and proceeded to order too much food!

Starters were...


Tandoori lamb chops with chilli and ginger. These were perfectly cooked and deliciously spicy.


Shrimps, ginger and smoked chilli chutney. These were beautifully crispy and totally delicious. Trishna specialises in seafood so these were bound to be good! 


Hariyali Bream with green chilli, coriander and smoked tomato kachumber. A beautiful emerald green piece of fish, perfectly cooked and flakey. The side dish of tomato was the perfect woody-tasting accompaniment. 


Salmon tikka with a dill raita.

'To die for' I proclaimed!! The best dish of the evening. Lightly cooked salmon with a beautiful tikka marinade. 

If all this wasn't enough for stater I insisted on order the selection of naan bread. I can't help myself when it comes to a good piece of naan!!


I liked two out three. The middle one was slightly sweet which I'm not keen on in a bread. 

Main courses. 


Seafood biryani containing seabass, shellfish and coriander. Lightly oiled, with perfectly cooked rice and a generous amount of seafood. 


Lamb masala. My least favourite dish. Mr Silver loves lamb and really, really wanted to try this. I found it heavy and the stewed lamb just tasted chewy and over cooked. He happily finished it though. 


Sorbet. Mumbai mojito, chilli chocolate and blood orange.


And a little complimentary petite four. 

We had a lot of food. But I would highly recommend Trishna. Fantastic Indian fine dining at a reasonable price! The neighbourhood of Marylebone is gorgeous too and there are plenty of foodie finds along the streets. Check it out!

    1. Its a good one to start out on because it really isn't too pricey, although cos we ordered a lot plus wine it did add up!

  4. Ooh, I've never gone for curry that's like this - usually the kind of place where the dishes are big and you can't actually finish everything.

    This sounds amazing though - might have to try it out!

    Hmm maybe...

    1. It's easily the best Indian I've had in London. The rice dish was pretty filling but most of the other things we had were light. I loved it, definitely a top pick.
