We ordered some takeaways from Indian Hut - cuttlefish, and mutton ...since we wanted to enjoy the lovely rooftop we had access to at the villa we stayed in. The portions were minuscule and sauce ladened with no hope in sight of finding a piece of anything other than foliage. The mutton was absolutely terrible and some of the guys... More

Had lunch here recently & found the food to be pretty good. Their Dahl was probably the best that I have ever had. If you sit by the window, you get a good view of the street & the sea. The service & the prices are both reasonable.

The masalas, curries, breads and tandoor meats are all very authentic, fresh and delicious but plenty of items on the menu were simply not available by 8pm so best get to India Hut earlier in the evening or for lunch. The staff are clearly run off their feet but this is no excuse for delivering cold food... Our meal was... More

Forget about all the Indian food you tasted back home... This is the place to try the genuine Indian food. Just amazing! (mind the chilli and reaaaaally hot indian food) The (very ugly and badly kept) entrance to the restaurant makes you think you will live a very bad experience, but you will be surprised :) Also, a great place...

The good thing about the place is the sea views. Very slack service - how can it take ages to bring on a fresh lime juice? The food pretty average. A few 'don't have' before we found something to settle for. No bread for lunch, only rice to accompany the dishes . No alcohol.

Definitely go here if you are in need of Indian food. We were and we were not disappointed. Firstly it serves great and tasty food. Tandoori happens after 6 pm and worth waiting for. Secondly and almost as good as the first point it's cheap so if you are on a budget and wish to eat well and cheaply and... More

One of the best places in galle fort, where you can enjoy your meal and also a good view of galle fort and harbor. Out side seating is the best, Good food, and also good drinks menu.

I have visited this place twice and I loved the food. I'm not a huge fan of indian food but this was quite the experience. I loved their nasi goring and the mixed rice. Quite big portions for the value. the battered cuttlefish dish was a downer because it had an odd taste when compared to the usual taste of... More

There is nothing to complain regarding the food here. It is reasonably priced and is good. However it takes forever to get the attention of a waiter before and after the meal. Some guests opted to go up to them asking for a menu while others had to keep asking for their bill. Service could really improve in this place.
