Excellent tandoori poussin and top notch food all round will definitely be returning
My favourite restaurant in hull. Really friendly service and the food is delicious. Particular favourites were the prawn and also the saag paneer. Used to come here on a weekly basis.
Something different - the quality of food is superb, and a great atmosphere too.
We bloody loved the food at Tapasya Marina! Great and very helpful service and they were willing to explain which dishes are suited with what. The atmoposhere was lovely. We would definitely all like to go back!
Lovely decor greeted at the door and our jackets taken. Seated and asked if we required water for the table and then gave us the drinks menu, once we had selected the drinks they gave us the food menu, small menu but i prefer that, we chose chicken with chili and the Lamb for starters these were both very nice the chicken was spicy! Mains we ordered Tikka Massala and Guinea fowl Biryani for mains with Garlic Naan, the tikka was the tastiest i have had it was creamy but spicy but also tasty will definitely order that again! The garlic naan was nice and thin and tasted of garlic which sometimes does not happen this was yummy. The Biryani was also nice there was plenty of meat which was nice. The drinks were topped up as we drank this was nice and the staff were attentive, sometimes a little to much though - when we first got there it was quite with only a few tables in and although there was music on it did feel a little awkward with the staff stood observing you there was to many all stood together once it filled up and they were busy with the other tables it was okay. We requested the bill and did not have any change for a tip so we gave £10 more in cash awaiting 2x £5 notes, we did not get any change back when we awkwardly had to ask for our change we got the £10 notes and £3 odd in change as this was already awkward we left the change, all change no matter the value should be returned to the customer.
Tapasya Marina is a fantastic place to go. The staff were friendly, yet professional, the decor and atmosphere were modern, relaxing and inviting. The food and drinks were excellent. Lovely cocktails. The menus were nice and clear to read (especially when one's eyes are not what they once were!) The only dampener on the evening was when the alarm sounded and lots of staff were running around trying to find where it was coming from. Took several minutes to detect it and then turn it off - kinda ruined the mood somewhat. Apparently that was the second time that the alarm had gone off, so maybe they need to look into something to prevent that happening when it doen't need to! I will be going back to the restaurant.
We had a lovely 1st experience at Tapasya Marina. The staff were very welcoming and the food was delicious. Very different from your normal Indian takeaway experience. Non of the food was overly spicy or "hot" and it was lovely that the delicate flavours of some of the fish dishes especially could still be tasted through the spices. The meal was quite expensive at main courses anywhere between £15 and £21 and you then could add extra's which bumps up the price. However this is a quality restaurant - and quality in both food and surroundings have to be paid for. We would definitely go again.
While the upstairs to the restaurant wasn't finished (which is why I only gave it a five and not a six - very picky I know), the downstairs decor did not disappoint. It was a lovely, friendly setting for what turned out to be an unbelievable Indian dining experience. I'll be honest; I wasn't overly impressed with the menu in terms of choice - and maybe that says more about me than the menu. However, I decided to try something new and put myself out of my own comfort zone. I chose the crab starter and the sea bass for my main - as a rule I do not like fish. All I can say is WOW - Taste explosion! I love Indian food, but this place, seriously, this food was a different level. Even their own Indian IPA was very tasty. My partner and I both had a starter, a main, naan breads and a side of paneer...along with two drinks, a bottle of water and coffees it came to just over £66 which we both felt was exceptional value for taste. I've been to the Beverley Road venue and now the Marina venue and I would recommend them both to anyone. We will definitely return.
My wife and I had a lovely meal at Tapasya Marina. The food was excellent and the staff were very attentive. The only issue I had was that because I am disabled, I found the walk from the taxi to the front door very difficult as I have MS. There are bollards nearby which blocked access for the taxi and meant I had to struggle to get there. I asked if the restaurant had a key to release the bollards, but I was informed that they had none. Apart from that, we had a great night!
The food tasted good but not to the extent that my wife and I were blown away by it. The starters were tiny, even by fine dining standards!!! On my plate, they served 3 really small scallops surrounded by mustard and two tiny slices of vegetable per scallop. The portion really was embarrassingly tiny. The main courses were slightly better. I had Kind prawn which were a nice size and I had three of them surrounded by a spicy sauce. A ordered a separate side dish of rice, otherwise I would have had to stop off somewhere else to have a proper lunch. My wife's experience was similar. In general the pricey menu (only the A La Carte menu available on Mother's Day) did not deliver a fulfilling experience. On a more positive note, the surrounding were very modern and the waiters/waitresses did a reasonable job, except for the fact they failed to notice that we had a 3 year old baby - they put a wine glass in front of her after we ordered our drinks and no one offered a high chair (later we found out that they do have those!!). If you want value for money fine dining, I would go somewhere else in the future.
