Delicious food! The best we have had in Sri Lanka so far. Service is also exceptional. We turned up for dinner without a booking and the restaurant filled up very fast after we sat down. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who comes to Nuwara Eliya. Just as good as the curries we had throughout northern India last... More

One of the few days during our trip when we had wholesome food. I am happy to say that the bill was nominal too! Being strictly vegetarian, getting food (other than plain rice and veg curry) is hard. Seems like this place has authentic Indian (mostly North Indian) food. I would recommend that you try it.

Our table ordered a black daal, a yellow daal and a butter chicken, with naan and rice. The black daal was underseasoned, the lentils were hard and it was very runny, like a thin soup. The butter chicken was dry as a desert and almost inedible, when we told the waiter he said that that's how it's supposed to be,... More

While in Nuwara Eliya, Grand Indian is the only good Indian fine dine restaurant. Its pricey too. Add to it a long waiting time. The food was actually good this time around. The roti and vegetable curries was liked by one and all. The food takes a long time to arrive. But with few Indian restaurants in Nuwara Eliya, Grand... More

Its only indian restro in this area, food is ok but service as poor that food taste will be off. Reached my naan on my table after it was cold. Would not visit again and opt for another option.

Well prepared Indian food. Enjoyed a lot. Lots of choices for vegetarians. Service was a bit slow. That was the only hiccup. If you are in a hurry, this may be a pain point.... We had all the time in the world, so didn't care. The food we finally got was worth the wait.....
