Great decor, great staff, great food quality. A bit spicy for sure, but worth it! Great menu options, wonderful masala dosa. We have been several times, so dates listed are approximate (and probably prior to the options offered).

This was the third restaurant in my neighbourhood that I took my son to on his recent visit. He lives in Montreal and the restaurants there are often very good. We arrived after a short walk from my apartment to find that the restaurant is covered in construction material - looks like the apartment building above is having some work... More

Been there a few times with colleagues from work. We usually have the lunch buffet. The food served is good, no doubt about that. Service is friendly. My only problem is the cleanliness of the buffet area. The floor feels very greasy and kinda looks yukky. Still worth going in for lunch. It's reasonably priced as well.

I have been to a lot of Indian restaurants both in Ottawa and all over India and although this falls under more Sri Lankan style food there are a lot of similarities with respect to ingredients and how they are prepared. I have frequented this restaurant on many occasions and have always had a great experience. The food is great... More

I live one block from the Carling Avenue location of this restaurant and I really like it. I am originally from South India, and Sri Lankan food is the closest thing to South Indian food that I can find in Ottawa. Mind you it's not really hot, like Sri Lankan food in Sri Lanka, or South Indian food for the... More

If you are not seasonned enough to order plates in an Indian food restaurant, Ceylonta is the place to go! They offer what I consider the best Fix-price Group Diner in Ottawa. For 25$/person, you and your guests will indulge in a Sri Lankan feast comprised of a mix of appetizers (Mutton Roll, Ulunthu Vadal, Kadalai Vadai and vegetable Samosa),... More

We've been to Ceylonta Restaurant a couple times and always liked their buffet there. This time we decided to go to another location: 2920 Carling Ave. Ottawa, ON (613) 828-7812 It was very satisfying. They offered weekend brunch, which was a very delicious dosa, fresh and crispy. I loved the soup of the day, (that day, anyway) Tamarind Rasam, I... More

I've had the chance to try almost all their dishes through out the year. I've found the taste to be unique when compared to other south asian restaurants in the city. Ottawa is mostly occupied with north indian style serving restaurants and Ceylonta isn't among one of them. It's Sri Lankan cuisine and most of the dishes I've ordered had... More

To be fair the dishes that were good were very good however sadly the nan was dry and tasteless, the tandori chicken dry etc... The sag paneer was superb and incredibly creamy the curries were nice and the somosas were spicy and delicious. The service is inconsistent but always friendly and the decor is dated and boring but functional
