Good & reasonably priced food, lousy service

This small restaurant provides good & tasty cuisine (food & drinks) at reasonable prices. Had an excellent lime juice and tasty chicken tandoori. When I visited, staff seemed to have a bad day.

After getting a bit fed up of Sri Lankan food, we stumbled across India Hut wandering around Galle Fort - thank God we did because the food was brilliant. Having eaten curries all my life, this was a breath of fresh air. Try and go after 6pm though so you can get the tandoori chicken and rotis. The lime juice... More

Nice and cosy restaurant with good food on a reasonable price. Don't expect too much and you'll be satisfied. Be patient with the waiters they are not in a hurry and sometimes they forget what you ordered. :)

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.
