“Was Expecting Much more than this !”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

Being an indian food taster I traveled to colombo specifically to try this restaurant, and to be honest I was a bit disappointed.
First of all, positives : the ambience and the atmosphere is fabulous, the place is well decorated and well kept I will give it 10/10 for the décor
Service : also will be ranked 9/10 they were very friendly and helpful
coming to the main reason I went to this restaurant for : Food taste
to be fare to them, I ordered the following based to the Waiter's recommendation as I asked his to advice for the best sellers:
1- Chicken biryani
2- Paneer and green peas ( cooked in southern indian way)
3- Fried Paneer
4- Chicken Curry
5- Chicken Dosai
6- Lassi Salted
7- Chutney ( Raita)

the whole food tased beloow what was expected, they did look good, they were edible but not to the extent which will make me go there again. in this trip to Srilanka I tried many Indian Restaurants but this wasn't one of the good ones taste wise !

“The Chutneys of the Cinnamon Grand”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

It is a delightful restaurant serving authentic Indian food. The atmosphere is warm and cozy and on festive days such as Deepavali and Thai Pongal, especial festive food items are available. A must try for ardent Indian cuisine lovers.

“disappointing to say the least”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

After having read many rave reviews of chutneys, was very disappointed with regard to menu choices, taste and service. Dosais seem to be a speciality but were singalurly unappealing in looks, variety and taste. The Dosai thali was baffling in the choicr of dosais presented. The non vegetarian starters were abominably bad. The string hoppers were dry. Other than the ambience and air conditioning, nothing else to recommend. Our meal took ovr 45 mins to come, with 3 reminders not having any effect. Discerning South Indians can safely avoid this restaurant.
