    Superb! Every dish on the degustation menu was excellent. When Michelin finally make it to Trinidad, then this restaurant is top of the list to get a star (some dishes were easily worthy of 2 stars).

    The Meena House is a delight to eat at. This review will do the food no justice at all. It was a special occasion for us (last night in Trini and a Birthday for GF) so pushed the boat out a bit. Overall I'd go back in a heartbeat

    I put together a wonderful vegan combo. The tomato broth superb. The chana and kale just the right amount of spice. But the wine which I carefully selected with much help was over the moon

    I had early dinner with my partner at 6pm on a Tuesday night, we were the first reservation to arrive the staff seemed rather unprepared for the evening service. Our server appeared distracted and careless we observed everyone around us being offered hot wet towels to clean their hands but for some reason we were not. The food was very good as well as the ambiance however service left a lot to be desired. If you are going to charge USA prices you need to make sure you also deliver USA quality of service.

    Very Disappointing I was very excited to try this restaurant on my annual business visit to Port of Spain and even made a reservation a month in advance, very disappointing. The restaurant is housed in an older building in the Embassy District and very near Savanah Park, the building is beautiful, and the restaurant is very well furbished, classy, nice. I did not need a reservation as it was a Tuesday night and I was the only person there when I arrived, the place was too bright, and the light should have been turned down to create a better ambience. I asked to be seated at the bar since I was solo and it was well stocked and very nice, the first issue I had was that the bartenders are short pouring the drinks, I asked for a Johnny Walker Balck Label on the rocks and as they filled the measure they stopped about 1/2" from the top and that is almost 1/2 ounce short, I was served by two bartenders and they both did the same thing so I can only assume it is a management policy to do that. Food was very overpriced and just simply disappointing, from the appetizer menu I ordered the Tandoori "Rack of Lamb", what came was one lamb chop, at 230TT or $34USD that is ridiculous, I can get a whole rack of lamb, 8 chops in a USA Restuarant for that price. I ordered the Rogan Josh curry; I have travelled the world and without a doubt this was the worst Rogan Josh I have ever had. The bowl arrive and it was way too big for the food served, the dish contained 5 thumb sized pieces of lamb and the rest of the dish was this disgusting bright red colored tomato sauce that had very little spice depth, there was too much sauce for the amount of meat but there was nothing else in the dish, I can only assume the extra sauce was added to make the dish look substantial but it was the worst Rogan Josh I have ever had. I also order the Garlic Naan and there was so much oil, ghee or butter that the oil was actually dripping from the Naan, it was bad, and I did not eat. $150

    The perfect choice for a lovely afternoon tea experience. The staff were fantastic and the food was delicious. I throughly enjoyed myself and my two friends have already planned to bring their family. I will also be doing afternoon tea again with my other group of girlfriends.

    After Meena House was recommended by a good friend I went there for my first time 13 February. It was the worst experience! People were served drink before me even though I arrived earlier. The appetizers too a very long time to be served. The oysters were terrible and could have been the cause of my sickness the next day. The dinner came much later and other people had their food before me. I was one of only 2 couples when I arrived at 7 pm. Others came in later and were served in a timely manner. It was a disaster and I doubt I will return.

    Exceptional Dishes with a great understanding of colour, spices, aroma and food textures. Space was inviting and tastefully decorated. Service is not only professional but the entire staff was exceedingly accommodating and pleasant. Each team member was well-informed of every dish and they were readily available to answer all of my questions and my dietary requirements were met.

    The food was delicious but the service was cold the hostess very cold towards us look at us like we shouldn’t be there and was not friendly at all the most friendliest person was the carpark attendant. The food was very tasty but a bit overwhelming with the same flavor like the Butter Chicken and Chicken tikka masala.

    A delectable array of Indian tea savory and delicacies to tantalize your palate, accompanied by a great Masala Chai and Basilor Mint tea. The ambiance and warm charismatic staff, Piyali and n Nilesh, made our our experience even more enjoyable. They were more than willing to answer our questions on the ingredients of the 12 different swet and savory items we were served. Thank you The Meena House...we will be back. Michele and Sandra
