This restaurant is inside the hotel Cinnamon Grand and one of the popular among the locals as well as the hotel guests and visitors - found mostly full - so better to book in advance. Varieties of foods to be chosen from and those all looks delicious. We had the Thali (rice and curry set meal), briyani and dosa, which... More

Its essentially a South Indian Restaurant offering clients choice of cuisine from most of the South Indian States. But it also serves good North Indian fare. In-fact after looking at the menu, we were about to walk away from the place, as my son wanted to have only Naan and Paneer, the head steward promptly stopped us and assured us... More

Try Dosai Thali and Indian Sweets. I liked them. You may also like them. To be precise, try rava dosa and laddoos.

It was a nice place for a meal. Clean and interesting food. Certainly worth a visit if only for a soft drink and snack. Coffee not bad.

A treat for any indian in Colombo especially a south indian. Very large and spacious restaurant located on the lobby level of Cinnamon Grand Hotel over looking the pool area. The aromas lingering in the restaurant really make you crave for more at the sight of food being served to the neighbouring tables. Their menu card is very elaborate and... More

We tried dosa here and it was very good. It's authentic south Indian and it's comes with side dishes that us traditionally spicy. A bit over priced but good quality

I can only recommend this excellent restaurant. I've tried South Indian food before but this was by far the best experience ever and it really taught me to appriciate this fantastic kitchen. being a non vegetarian I would still recommend anyone to choose the vegetarian dishes because those are the ones that really sets this kitchen apart. The dosai thali... More

Went here with the family for a nice South Indian meal. Being South Indians ourselves and based on the very high TripAdvisor ratings, we were expecting something as close to authentic as possible. To start with, their menu is very well organised by each state in South India and they seemed to have fairly good dishes there. The vazhaipoo vada... More
