Located in a five-star restaurant, adorable atmosphere, friendly staff and everything was just perfect except that if you are a walk-in guest you only get a small table coz all the finer tables are reserved... Coz it's a South Indian Restaurant so Tandori chicken is not availble but they have something tastes very similar, if not better. Definitely try the... More

We went to Chutneys restaurant many times on our last days in Colombo. The menu is very intriguing and all we have tried tasted amazing. Loved the restaurant, and waiting staff is doing a great job.

Had dinner at Chutneys with friends 3 days ago. I go there often enough to know its a really great dining experience and wasn't disappointed. The Dosa's were great and so was everything else. We were 6 people so ordered a lot of different South Indian curries. Service Staff are always very good, help the customers order from a huge... More

This is a kind of place where you will have the real South Indian foods in Colombo city. Super environment, good service and very good guidance to select the correct amount of food by very knowledgeable stewards. Please do prior reservation before going to this place as always backed with confirmed guests.

All the best restaurants in Colombo are in hotels - I normally avoid hotel dining but not here. Buffet great, service fantastic. Fresh indian breads and chutneys. Very pleasant meal indeed with very attentive staff. If you... More
