Food was good. Great selection as well. I really liked the cheese garlic naan which i haven't seen anywhere else. Great service and not as expensive as it looks from the outside.

Havi g just spent a few months in India and having some fine Asian restaurants in London, this place only stands out because of the lack of competition in the damp and cold town. The thali was certainly nothing to rave about and the tandoori chicken rather too salty. The biryani was ok. Service good tho' beginning to verge on... More

In Sri Lanka even though it is so near India it is not so easy to find good Indian restuarants. The best meal we had during our Sri Lanka trip was at the Grand Indian restaurant. Everything tasted good and good value for money. It is a bit on the expensive side but not that much. Really enjoyed the meal... More

We almost by-passed this place, because it look very flash and surely too expensive. But to our surprise, the meals weren't overly priced (we are budget travelers), and the flavours were just amazing. So much so that we came back for lunch the next day.

I went with my family for Lunch during our stay at The Grand Hotel, Nuwara Eliya. On the first day we had ordered for south Indian dishes and biryani. The idli and the ulundu wadai (medu wada) were terrible, we couldn't even finish the dishes! The dosa was still better and edible. The only food item resembling the Indian taste... More
