The Trident Hilton's restaurant is immaculately clean, nicely lit, and well laid out -- the tables are not too close together. Service is first class, attentive without being intrusive.
Diners may choose, at all meals, between a lavish buffet and a la carte orders. Liquor is available, being delivered from the nearby bar.
Favorite Dish: Keema Matter: minced lamb with peas, rice, dal. The meat is done to perfection; the dish is only mildly spicey; and there's enough of it for at least two people. The cost, with coffee, was Rs 375, just under US$10 in October 2007.
I only stayed in Bhubaneswar for a couple of nights and the first night I was still recovering from illness that I had for about a week. This non-veg restaurant at the Hotel Pushpak is fairly posh and popular with well-to-do families. I had a good mutton rogan rosh, rice, naan and papads and, still feeling hungry, a tinned fruit salad and ice cream dessert all for Rs200. There's not all that much foodwise that looked half decent so this is a good option or maybe in some other hotels in the area.
