Really nice Indian Restaurant in Colombo. It is really full of varieties. Really low cost when compared to other five star indian restaurants even though it is in Cinnamon Grand. Supreme quality of service. We got a Thali from the house free of charge and laddu for the dessert again for free... read more

The Chutneys offers you south Indian delight accompanied with both veg and non veg cuisine. I think probably the only restaurant in SriLanka which has the ability to eat traditional ghee dosai with meat of your choice. The Ala carte menu has wide variety of foods with the taste of Andra, Chennai etc..This is probably the best Indian restaurant in... More

I was at Chutneys after a long time and it was an enjoyable experience after all this time. The quality of the food is very good. As my luck would have it the server (Sugeertharan) assigned to our table was very informative and suggested dish pairing and food portions. As good as the food was it was also the care... More

Best place to relish authentic South Indian food in Colombo. South Indian thali (veg/non-veg) is highly recommended. Thali plate comes up with idly, paratta, dosa and bowl of rice served along with various type of curries and side dishes. Prices are nominal for the tasty dishes offered on the table. Tried traditional panagam drink which seem to be a summer... More

In hindsight I can't recall all the dishes we ordered but we did cover a reasonable part of the menu. The menu is organized according to which region the dishes originate from. We only ordered vegetarian dishes and there a lot of them to choose from. They also serve amazing mocktails. They had a mint and citrus concoction that blew... More

We were staying at the Taj Sumudra but wanted to eat outside and found this restaurant on the internet. It's situated in the Cinnamon Grand and is very grand but had great service and divine food - and not expensive. We had the dosa thali - one veg and one non veg and shared it - all the dishes were...

While it looked like an expensive restaurant. We were very happy to see the food reasonably priced. It just makes more sense when the food tastes good and is priced well too. The kulfi was very good. The menu had more than just south Indian food and dishes were well prepared. Overall a very nice outing with good satisfying food... More
