This restaurant is all about high-class Indian cuisine in a pleasant atmosphere; in fact, in summer you can dine in a lovely garden looking onto Piazza Trilussa. In addition to North Indian dishes, they also feature specialities from Goa, such as swordfish in coconut milk and a spicy sauce. There is a wide range of vegetarian dishes based on rice and tandoori-style preparation.
Before visiting Rome I surfed for Indians restaurants and took a list. This had the best location for us so we went along. The starters were clearly cooked a few days before and re-heated. I had fish and potato dish that was really not nice. We were given a free lentil soup which was OK but it tasted like it was instant from powder. Not homemade. The popadoms were stale which should have set alarm bells ringing. The main course was better and was fresh but just very ordinary. The worst bit of all was that it cost 72 Euros for 2 including 1 bottle of wine. It was our most expensive meal that week. The only excuse I can give is we did arrive as it opened at 7.30pm.
My husband and I celebrated our 35th anniversary at Surya Mahal last week and absolutely loved the experience. And it was an experience as the atmosphere was lovely, the service quite good and the food absolutely the best we have had in Rome. We are both Indian and think this restaurant deserves the high recommendation we had from several colleagues. We had a most enjoyable and romantic evening.
Ok Our main aim to write this review is WE dont want anybody else being cheated on name of Indian food ,as We are Indians n have travelled a lot n had Indian food at best of the restaurants in best of the cities n we strongly feel that what we liked about this restaurant is just its location n what we disliked ...1.NO variety
2.NO value for money
4.Service is just hopeless
5.U dont get what is ordered
I mean absolutely hopeless restaurant in short.The person who takes order is a Srilankan n she can speak no hindi added no proper english n most importantly she is the most unfriendly face that we have come accross. U wish to dine at a place where the atmosphere is good but due to this lady n management u will never feel like going back...now guys we have written what we experienced n wud just say one thing dont be fool to spend money n feel bad about being there.
My husband and I had such a great meal at Surya Mahal. We tasted several of their main dishes from mild to spicey and it's hard to say which one we liked best. The food is presented very well and we had a very good bottle of Nero D'Avola recommended as an accompaniment by the waiter (a smiling friendly young man who was quite pleasant. The price was right for the good sized portions and the ambience is beautiful. The garden in the middle of Trastevere is unique.
We went to Surya Mahal on Diwali..i liked the ambience, the best thing is its location..the foo dis good too. wd be great if all the waiters were better informed abt the cuisine..except the lady. i enjoyed my diwali meal there for sure..nad have been there several times now:)
