The portions are small, the food not resembling the Indian food even close. It feels like a place that used to be top but the quality now is just so bad... Service is still class, atmosphere is nice, but the food is only a big disappointment. We chose a big variety plus mango lassi. Everything was tasteless (lack of basic... More

Not as good as it used to be.... This is a place I enjoyed going to when I went to Nuwara eliya.... But food standards have clearly dropped.... Food lacks seasoning and even portions have changed.... Hope things fall back into place soon

This place lives up to its reputation as one of the top restaurant destinations in Nuwara Eliya. The menu provides a very decent selection of dishes, mixing all styles of Indian food from various regions. The atmosphere in the restaurant is also pleasant The service is also relatively good and fast. Just make sure you catch the waiter's attention, as... More

The food at this little gem in Nuwara Eliya is delicious and the service was speedy and friendly apart from the one waiter who was a little too keen to take our order he kept of hovering around our table as we looked through the menu which is rather extensive. When the food arrived it was cooked to perfection and... More

The restaurant is bit small for the type of guests it pulls. Food is very good, service OK. Rates on the plus side. Liked it b'coz walking distance from hotel.

Disgusting " Ïndian" food. They should simply cook sri lankan food unless they know what indian food is. We expected some Indian food for a change, but was served curries with disgusting powder of spices which hadn't even mixed in the food in the 1st place..... We have had Indian Food all over the world but never like this. Unbelievably... More

Just left the place. The only good thing about the place is the decor. As i was eating alone they kept coming to ask me if i had finished when it was obvious i hadn't. Maybe they don't like one person occupying a table fot 2....their servings are small...i ate all that was there as I normally just have dinner... More

This review is of afternoon tea. The Arab looking owner guy completely ignored us as we were a bunch of women but went around and spoke to every other table. The patisserie were amazing but the savoury options were tasteless and some were definitely plated up in the fridge hours before. The staff were friendly but not very well trained.... More
