“Imaginative Asian cuisine”
Review of Tapasya @ Marina

Tapasya @ Marina
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$20 - US$404
Description: Here at Tapasya at Marina, our first and foremost desire is to allow our guests to escape from the bustling city. Whether you wish to catch up with friends, or relax in sumptuous seclusion, our contemporary Lounge provides the perfect sophisticated getaway. Once you are seated comfortably in the Lounge, you can enjoy an array of unique and vibrant cocktails, created by our in house mixologists. Our philosophy is to provide diners with Indian food unique to their area of the UK. There is a strong link between Yorkshire and India, creating a connection between our origins and their adopted home. We use only the finest local produce cooked with a finesse found only in fine dining restaurants, using ancestral Northern and Southern Indian culinary techniques. This applies to every dining experience that we offer- from a light lunch to the most decadent dinner. Each menu demonstrates the care and attention employed by Tapasya at Marina’s chefs. From the food’s contemporary presentation to the spices that are dried and ground in house, the combination of homely warmth and utter indulgence makes us an unforgettable dining destination.

Tapasya is a fresh, innovative introduction to high quality Asian food. The modern, spacious premises offer fabulous views over Hull marina - you could almost be in the South of France (only almost). Service is warm and genuine as you’d expect in this very friendly city. Between the five of us we tried almost all the starters and main courses - the menu is varied but short - a good sign. Each dish was exquisitely flavoured, spicy but without overpowering heat. Fresh ingredients and perfectly cooked food ensure an explosion of flavours with every mouthful. At £30 a head for two generous courses and a good bottle of Indian wine, it was great value as well. I can see Tapasya becoming a firm favourite of ours. Great experience

A wonderful fine dining inspired restaurant with amazing authentic India dishes. Do not go expecting a Chicken Tikka Masala but do go expecting an unusual and exciting meal. The service was excellent without being over the top and I recommend the Gin cocktails. Can't wait to go again.

I visited here twice in the last month, arguably one of the best Indian restaurants I have been to in the UK.

Beautiful setting near the marina, great service, excellent WiFi, a high end restaurant inside but the thing that elevates this place is the food. All dishes were excellent, the butter chicken was amazing.

Highly recommended.

I considered a number of summary words and unfriendly provides the best feel. Other words would be pretentious, expensive, rude, slow, and underwhelming. The team of 12 were looking forward to the meal. The place lacks ambience and fun whilst at the same time being overly serious. The overall consensus was not to bother in future.

The food is mediocre at best and would have been better leveled at the £20 per head, not the c£60 it came to. Price notwithstanding - we tend to pay more; service and attention was seriously lacking. The cheek to add a 10% service charge was politely refused though they made up for it from the things charged for we didn't actually have. After four attempts at correcting we left it as was.

Food is mysteriously concocted and portion sizes questionable on value for money.

My recommendation: go somewhere for a more traditional Indian meal - we wish we had!
