The food at Tropika was good and tasty. I would not say it was outstanding, but my friends and I had our good share of food.
The one thing that is bringing my rating down is the service. From the beginning my friends and I felt very rushed. We were rushed to order, since just 3 minutes after sitting down we were asked if we were ready to order, which we clearly were not. Our food menus were not open yet, since we were still deciding on drinks.
However, after ordering, our food came very quickly, which we were quite pleased about, and our drinks were very timely too. This should've been a clue that they wanted us to hurry and eat. Before we finished our meals, the plates were taken away. We ordered dessert, and just a few minutes after the dessert was placed in front of us, the bill came (we were only half-way through the dessert). And a few minutes later, before we finished our dessert, someone came by to pick up the bill (which we hadn't paid yet). We had to tell the waiter we were not ready yet, although our half-eaten dessert should have been a clue.
We were then told that they needed this table, as there was another reservation.
I've been to many other restaurants, where they will warn you ahead of being seated, that we would need to vacate by x time because there was another reservation. Had we have known that, we probably would not have been so miffed. I believe they didn't tell us this, because we most likely would've walked out to another restaurant where we would not have such a short time limit to enjoy our meal.
It was a busy Friday night, but some courtesy and warning would have been better than the rushed and curt service that we received.
