4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2014 NEW

the buffet was excellent. 5 star actually except for hard idlis which bring it down to 4. All south indian delicacies on offer - worth trying everything. Live appam and dosa too. the sides are super. the rasam is very well made and goes great with the medu wada. Reasonably priced if you compare to India...

One of the restaurants in The Cinnamon Grand hotel. I was dining alone. It seemed to be frequented by locals - usually a good sign. Plenty of choice and reasonably priced for a hotel. Most enjoyable and a bit different to the Asian restaurants in the UK

great food. Indian food is typically heavy so don't bother with a starter. get a dahl dish and some naan and mutton. Amazing!

Second time here. Great atmosphere, consistently great food, great service. Had a vegetarian rice thali which is a combination of rice, thosai, paratha and a selection of curries and two desserts. The thosai thali is similar with rice substituted with a masala thosai (spicy potato stuffing) and more thosai.

Well, didn't we feel smug?! We landed on Chutneys (one of 14 restaurants in the Cinnamon Grand Hotel) totally be accident. We didn't expect much from a big hotel restaurant but Wow! Service, food, decor all great. Food presentation (stainless steel plates aside) was enticing and the food itself was great. Final smug point- the bill. Under £10 for the... More

The food was not at all tasty. I was quite disappointed. The service was also poor. No value for money.

Myself and lovely wife visited Chutney on 30th September whilst on holiday in Colombo. We were blown away by the service provided especially by Sugeertharan who gave us fantastic recomendations on food and provided an excellent curry with great knowledge about what to.order we would love to eat here again and spend the evening in this beautiful resturant.

Not sure about the other reviews but I thought the food was not authentic --South Indian food tastes way better than this and the flavors are way better. Not a very commendable attempt considering the steep pricing. Great décor and service though !!

Restaurant in Cinnamon Grand hotel. I've been here several times and the food is always first class. Range of Indian dishes from different regions of the country available as well as several thalis. Crescat mall, albeit small, is next door to the hotel making it convenient to combine meal with shopping.
