This has to be one of the shortest reviews Ive ever written. Its also one of those which saddens me, as I write it. While I do take note of the investment of money, time and hopes which go into setting up of a restaurant, my first duty is to you dear reader, to share with you an accurate account of all that I encountered. Here goes.
I don't have to say too much, please take a look at the photograph I shot at 1.50 pm on a Saturday at Juhu's restaurant "Trifecta". Not only was the restaurant empty but I went through a lot of the dishes from the three cuisines (that's why it' called "Trifecta") . Woefully, the "Parma ham" was not Parma ham, thick-skinned momos, overcooked Jerk chicken, ditto for the fish tikkas. Lacklustre black dal and oversweet chicken makhanwalla. The Burmese Khao suey was just about okay, but the stodgy tiramisu and Balleys cake disappointed.
Since we were the only ones, polite waiters clustered around us. Parma ham with figs took over half an hour to be served as did the tapioca pearl steamed Saku Rai. Both strictly avoidable.
See all the above.
Clean, wooden-slatted and pleasant space off the ground floor lobby of Juhu's Royal Garden hotel.
Sadly, "Trifecta" replaces "Opa" which had served above average Mediteranean fare. But here there's clutter and a long, winding menu with more than three cuisines (Swiss Fondue, Japanese Tempura, Thai Satay et al.) But as always the acid test of a restaurant is "would we go back here?". No prizes for guessing that the answer is "Not till they improve."

Superb restaurant, and eye catching too. It has a wooden décor which looks great. We had nice cocktails and specially a dish called pomogranate martini and in starters Calamari Fritters. Options in non-veg was pretty good. Rocking music and warm ambience.
