Had an opportunity to sample some Nothern Indian delights a couple of days ago.
Trishna Restaurant is tucked away at level B1 of Hotel Istana Kuala Lumpur and has been operating since June 2011
The interior and the deco in Trishna Restaurant is cosy and rather romantic
Private room for those who wants privacy. Great for private function and events, I must say.
Acchari Chicken Tikka. Very flavourful and tender, piping hot from the tandoor.
Paneer Tikka. An Indian farmer’s cheese dish. The texture was rather solid and the taste can be liked to flavoured tofu. My other half mistook this for chicken meat.
Ajwain Fish. Awesome. Had a few bites of these. Fishy and unpleasant smell was absent. 😀 Highly recommended to fish lovers.
Dhal Makhani. Surprisingly good and not diluted. Very flavourful, thick and creamy. Great as dips and as side dish to go with flavoured or plain rice.
Mutton Rogan Josh. The mutton was tender and definitely one of the star sensation that night.
Butter Chicken was divine. It’s creamy and mild but not overly overwhelming. Managed to tempt me for a few rounds of these.
Saag Paneer, an Indian dish consisting of spinach and Indian farmer’s cheese in a thick curry sauce based on pureed spinach. A must try, in my opinion.
Began Aloo, a very popular North Indian side dish made with potatoes and brinjals. Love this. It paired up perfectly with my naan and rice.
Naan Roti Mix. Surprisingly thin in comparison to the ones I’m familiar with in the regular mamak I usually frequent.
Pulao Rice, fragrant and flavourful and a perfect pairing with all those dishes that I mentioned above.
Pickles, surprisingly spicy and sour too. I loved this very much, very appetizing. Took a few spoonfuls of this stuff.
Dessert was Gulab Jamun. The deep-fried dough balls immersed in sweet syrup. Not a big fan of Indian desserts as they’re usually cloyingly sweet, but these Gulab Jamun are okay. The syrup is not overly thick too.
Last but not least, I had refreshing fruit punch to wash down all the spiciness with.
Overall, the dining experience in Trishna Restaurant, Hotel Istana is wonderful and I would easily recommend it to those who wants to eat authentic North Indian cuisine. Price wise, Thrishna Restaurant offers great food for a fraction of the price.
