We had a pleasant enough meal at Navayuga, but felt that the staff were not all that enthusiastic about tourists being there. The focus seems to be on the local community and it is certainly popular with the locals. It has a very extensive and impressive menu, however, and the restaurant is handily located just off Galle Road, where we... More

We ordered Kottu rotti (Veg as well as chiken) and milagu rasam. For the above average price I would say it is an OK restaurant. Nothing special as well as nothing bad.

It has a limited menu. Survives mostly on the basis of captive Indian tourists brought by the travel agencies. The food is average. There are better eating joints for Indian food in Colombo.

Food was so so, we tried South Indian, it was a bit hit and miss. Biryani, was a bit salty with no great flavour. For drinks they only had... More

I spent one hour after ordering the food. When the food finally arrived there was a chicken Biriyani that did not have chicken and only an egg on top as a decoration. When we inquired the staff agreed to take the Biriyani off the bill. Food was not anywhere to the standard. Never to go again!!

My husband and I love Indian food and had just arrived from India so thought we'd give this restaurant a try because it is very close to where we were staying. It was a very good choice...especially for our introduction to Sri Lanka. We had Chicken Tikka, Murg Kadai and a prawn curry that we can't remember the name of,... More
