I realize that it sounds like anathema to go to Trishna and eat only the vegetarian food (especially in light of the fact that I am usually a die-hard sea food fanatic!), but that is exactly what I did for lunch today.I was by myself so did not want to order a multiple dishes for fear that (a) I would not be able to finish them or, (b) if I DID finish them, I would be in a food coma for the remainder of the day which would render me unable to go back to work.I decided to keep it simple and order a portion of the Hyderabadi Daal and a Butter-Garlic Naan. Both items were superlative! I cannot say for sure, but I'd be willing to wager cold cash that even the daal they make in Hyderabad itself is not as good as Trishna's version of it. Add to this a moist, warm and thoroughly flavorful butter-garlic naan and you have yourself a great lunch.In addition to the GREAT food, the service at Trishna is always friendly, prompt and curteuos - all of which go a long way in creating customer loyalty (God knows I keep going back!!).
On the price front, Trishna tends to be a little on the high side (which is why it only earned 4 stars from me). For my simple lunch, I ended up paying 250 bucks. This figure is not really high per se, but if one bears in mind that all I got was daal, naan and a soda-pop it seems a bit pricey.Either way, on the balance, Trishna deserves (and gets) 2 whole-hearted thumbs up from me.
