Had lunch today. Great venue. Great service ( expected as its part of the grand hotel). As a vegetarian, it's often hard to find suitable food, so the grand Indian did come to our help. It's certainly value for money, but the food could have been a bit more tastier. (Personal opinion).

We went twice here, during our stay in Srilanka. We are vegetarians and were surprised to find this good one after consecutive bad experiences with Indian food at Kandy. Location could be easily spotted and the ambience was good. Definitely worth a try!

The food here is great & very tasty. It is difficult to get a reservation, because it is always booked. We ordered take away. I recommend this Grand Indian Restaurant to any body.

Overall, solid Indian food with great service, 3 minute walk from the Grand Hotel. We went with our two kids and we all enjoyed it.

I had the vegetarian thali and all the dishes came out cold. The food was tasteless as well. My husband had the chicken Briyani and it only has two bits of bony chicken in there - a far cry from the description in the menu of "tandoori cooked chicken"! Would definitely not recommend! I'm a bit upset with the raving... More

We dined here one night while in Nuera Eliya. The staff was excellent. Very friendly, efficient and polite. The food was superb. My wife and I had the fish Thali, which was just superb. This was one of the best eating establishments we visited during our trip to Sri Lanka.

It is a very busy restaurant, so we had to wait outside for over half an hour. Then we had to share a table with 2 other people who we didn't know. The meal was a very basic curry. My husband had a byriani but it was only rice, no sauce or veg. Mine was just a plate of dry... More
