The food is excellent and ambiance is also good. Surprisingly good wine choices as well. The only challenge is they open at 6.30pm and the restaurant fills up immediately so you have to wait approximately an hour until you can get a table, unless you vet there before opening. We went to their affiliated hotel, Grand Hotel, to have a... More

We never expected such good Indian restaurant in Nuwara Eliya. Its located near the Grand Hotel and parking is available along the road. Food is really tasty and quite reasonable too. Also the atmosphere is really nice. With regard to the staff they are very slow and restaurant needs to have more tables.

After long tiring drive from Kandy to Nuwara Eliya, we were terribly tired and hungry. We went to this restuarant and with hesitation ordered the items. We were not in mood to have tasteless food and just fill the stomach. But for our surprise, the food served was very highly quality and superb taste.

We arrived early (6:30pm) and got a table without reservation. Later in the evening there was a lot of people waiting outside... but it was worth waiting for :-) They served delicious food and drinks with a lovely atmosphere. This restaurant was by far our best experience with Nuwara Eliya.

It is the best Indian Food I had. We tried chicken butter, grilled Tandoori and Chicken Beeyani. All had great taste withe preference to Chicken butter. However try to be there early. It happened that I arrived for dinner an hour before they open (6:30pm) during August. In minutes the question started to pile up, by the time it opened... More

The service was the worst!! Literally the worst service ever! The manager is the worst one.. no manners or any ethics on how to speak to a customer. He definitely isnt qualified to be a manager. Wouldn't even hire him to clean the tables.. the food came after more than an hour after placing the order.. the waiter apparently took... More

Four of us went there hungry, after a long journey on a gloomy afternoon. We have somehow managed parking space and welcome delightly in to the restaurant. The place was a bit crowded at the moment and looked busy. The manager came in to our help in ordering. We ordered tikka masala and naan rotis. Order was placed pretty quickly... More
