“Nice atmosphere, passable food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

We had lunch here one day but decided not to go back. The service was friendly,the prices reasonable and the atmosphere very pleasant. But if you are looking for good Indian food, you will be disappointed, I think. We had vegetable korma and palak paneer, both dishes we have really enjoyed in India. The korma was ok, but not inspiring, and the spinach sauce around the paneer looked, and tasted, as if it had come from a Tetrapak. Maybe we would have been better with the South Indian dishes.

“Not Indian”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

The restaurant food is not that Indian, they served us Paneer Butter Masala but we thought they served Tamota soup with some Paneer pieces inside.

IF you like Indian Food, you need to visit the Grand Indian. We really enjoyed the north Indian cuisine.

“Campbell's Soup”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

This place was shockingly bad - I guess I mistakenly thought that you could get decent Indian food in Sri Lanka - it was rather appalling.

Service was perfectly fine and I thought the atmosphere was lovely, but the food was quite bad.

“I can't decide”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

About this restaurant. We visited on a Saturday lunchtime. The food was OK - not memorable although I do remember that the small slither of poppdum served with my curry was soggy. It all had a feel of the conveyor belt about it - I can't quite put my finger on it. The ambiance want helped by some unruly children running around, making a lot of noise and generally being unchecked by their parents. All in all a mediocre experience.
