Tasty food with a good presentation, appetizing. Variety is great even though in a small room. If you are stuffed with the heavy morning breakfast at the Grand, then it is ideal to go for the lunch at the grand Indian. From sweets to main course, you will find very fragrant food which are not hot.

The name is to attract a lot of India foodies. So far so good, but i guess the food although Indian is not as tasty as anywhere in India. Better try Srilankan cuisine at some other restaurant. The service is slow too. If its full you need to wait outside for a long time as its not a big restaurant... More

We enjoyed an excellent light lunch, served by an attentive staff. The chicken dish and handmade bread was filling and wonderfully seasoned.

I liked shrimp masala dish and scone the best of all. It was quite spicy but in the same time very tender. Place was popular and crowded.

Went there thinking of good Indian food, we ordered the thali, but all the dishes were very cold. But special thanks to chef ranbir singh who made us some hot palak paneer and rotis to cover up for the damages that was done on ordering the thalis...
