I went to Trident, Agra just a day before Christmas Eve with my wife and kid. We had read about their restaurant Alfresco, an Italian one on Zomato and had gone there to have good Italian food. However, all guests were being seated in their multi-cuisine restaurant called La Brasserie, which means ‘The Restaurant’ in English. On browsing through their menu, we found that it would be better to opt for a dinner buffet rather than order a-la-carte.
The restaurant is a very spacious one. The best part about the layout of the restaurant is that it looks very neat and very non-crowded despite sufficient number of guests dining at that time. Our attendant’s name was Srishti, who was a trainee there and she made us very comfortable and served very well. She arranged for a baby chair for our kid and was thoroughly helpful. She also arranged for my wife’s phone to be charged as our charger was not working.
The buffet was very good. Everything was very well done. I would say that I have seen more lavish buffets than this one but the preparation was far better than most of the places. The buffet had 2 soups- veg and chicken, good dessert counter, plenty of salads, snacks, fish, Indian/Mughlai curries and good choice of breads. I found the fish to be cold and on informing them about it, the staff was very apologetic and came twice to say sorry for the same. I particularly liked Potato Wedges, Chicken Curry, vegetable-au-gratin, Cream of Chicken soup, Chicken Pasta Salad, Mushroom vegetable (since it was prepared with a twist). The person at the dessert counter himself offered to get me a gulab jamun, even though it was not on display anywhere in the buffet menu. I think that the dessert menu should have been a bit more elaborate considering the fact that people like to try out different desserts at such good hotels since they are prepared very well.
Overall, a good luxurious place to have dinner with your family. Cost of buffet per person – INR 1600.
