Good food and plenty of it

We were a little hungry and fancied a nice curry. We brought our driver who helped translate but the staff were brilliant. Always good to see locals eating there also but our driver Bandara also thought it was the best he had eaten for a longtime. Excellent selection. Good value. Kid loved it.

Definitely local champion instead of "Lucky Fort Restaurant" in the same category. Good location with view great view. Long menu with different Indian/Chinese dishes (first part I think is stronger). My favorite was Tikka Masala - just delicious. Half of clients are local families or couples, so I believe that is sign of authentic food. Service is great - ask... More

The restaurant is beautifully located in Rampart street on the southern tip of Galle Fort and the top floor seating gives a nice view of the rampart and the see. The inside of the restaurant could do with a paint job. The food is delicious and cheap. It's also one of the few restaurants in Galle Fort were more locals... More

We picked this place through the Rough Guide review and found it to be excellent. The first floor restaurant area is quite nice and there was a little demand for the tables that overlook the bay. We waited a little and got a good seat. The food was fabulous though - we had a Keralan fish curry and a chicken... More

Excellent food (!) , good price, good staff! The only thing you could complain is that there is no description what the ingredients of those curries are. But i guess the staff knows about it. It depends where u sit in this restaurant. We sat on the window. So it was like we were sitting on a balcony:-) otherwise it... More

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

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. It took a while before we were even asked what we wanted to drink/eat. After dinner, the check was brought much, much quicker.

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. :)
