I am good repeter since 2008 to this restaurant. But yesterday I was so disappointed with my dish because I got court a WORM in my dish. I had lime juice and chicken noodle. In that point in the chilly paste I found SMALL WORM walking here and there. I am going to complaint to government. I have all evidence.

Easy to get a seat. Bit rough and ready and the tap in the corner did not stop running all the time we were... More

From the outside Indian Hut doesn't look much, but when you go upstairs you have lovely views of the Fort Walls and sea. The restaurant itself is very simple, so don't expect anything posh. I'm a Northerner and we do love our curries, so when we spotted Indian Hut, we had to try it and we were definitely not disappointed!... More

All the hype about this place went down the drain once we set foot in to the place. We saw that the Naan was painted with oil using a paint brush & sold as butter Naan out side the entrance by the road. The butter Naan cost more. I have lived in all states of India & am quite acquainted... More

We spent the afternoon looking round Galle Fort and had lunch at this place beforehand. The food is OK, cheap and the staff OK. It does have a nice view and is very close to the fort.

Everything swims in pools of oil, overuse of chili, chicken isn't fresh and every vegetarian curry tastes the same. Indian food made crappy to cater to all kinds of tastebuds who may or may not know the difference. Skip this and get some local sri lankan fish or prawn curry instead. Delhi belly guaranteed the next day. Don't risk it.
