Truly incredible. My friend found this restaurant on the Internet for Christmas Eve (when many places were closed). The service as exceptional, the various menu items were incredibly authentic and for two of us who had previously lived in India - we were excited about how spicey and tastes they made the various menu items......not to mention the great beer...

If you're considering a curry whist in Nuremberg then this is the place to visit. 30 years of experience and a great choice of Sri Lankan curry - the Roti being my favorite!

We had ordered Chicken Kottu Roti, Prawn Hodi and Chicken Malay. The taste was authentic and felt like being in Colombo. We asked the cook to prepare the chicken full of spices and very soon realised that we just could not eat it. The coconut gravy based preparation for the Prawns was also extremely tasty. Highly recommended, mind the spices... More

Dined at Mount Lavinia based on a recommendation for our hotel as we were looking for gluten free options and were so very pleased with our experience. The cuisine is from Sri Lanka and tastes like a combination of Indian and Thai cuisine. Dishes can be vegetarian and many are gluten free and are served with a delicious red Sri... More

I'd like to share my experience at Mount Lavinia with you. After some time, I decided to go there again. I ordered the Spinach Soup and the Kottu Roti. Both, starter and main course, arrived quite quickly - considering the restaurant was completely full. Both dishes were absolutely delicious. In addition, the waiters did and amazing job - considering the... More

Ordered the Lamb dark curry. My friend had the coriander lamb dish. Both dishes were exceptional! You can't go wrong eating here. The flavones and spices are authentic. Staff are very friendly. Be patient to be served.

We stayed in Nuremberg and found this restaurant on TripAdvisor as we are Vegetarians. This restaurant is Sri Lankan cuisine and has an extensive menu which seemed to mix with Thai a little. We were happy to find lots of options for us and there were also a few Vegan options although not many. The restaurant has an unusual decor... More
