Tasty Dosas

Some menu items seemed a little overpriced, but the dosa's were both inexpensive and tasty. The place had nice ambiance and service was good.

We came to this restaurant from our hotel (Hill Club). The restaurant cannot be booked and is small and popular. When it is full a notice appears on the door and the restaurant manager ones out occasionally and you can put your name on a clipboard. We waited in the rain for about 30 minutes and got quite lucky and... More

We visited the restaurant for lunch. We requested a table for 7 adults and 2 kids, and we're asked to wait in the next door cafe. Another large group was seated before us by the window and we were eventually given a table in a closed room near the toilets (which were horribly dirty). When we asked the manager of... More

I loved the food served at Grand Indian. It was located right in the hotel (Grand Hotel) where we stayed. I loved their Naan and Chicken Tikka. My husband tried the Mutton Biryani and it was flavorsome and delicious. Great location as well!

My partner and I had a lovely dinner here. The food was delicious (especially the naan) and they had a huge vegetarian selection. Though the restaurant was busy (there was a line before it even opened) it did not feel crowded. The service was excellent. Both quick and attentive without being overbearing.

You cannot reserve here so if you want a table be prepared to queue from 6.15, the place will be full by 7 o'clock. Many people having to stand out in the cold waiting for a table to free up. The food was really good and lots of choice. Service excellent and decor really warm and inviting. A special treat... More

This place was our official food counter for about 3 days of our stay in Nuwara Eliya. The prices are quite reasonable and quality is unmatched. Highly recommended

Even though it's recommended to reserve a table in advance we were running early (around 6:30pm) and lucky to get table. We ordered a Paneer and a Chicken Thali which were both excellent. Prices are reasonable for the quality. A plus is the nice location and the very friendly service!
