Usual dinner place

Great food, good value for money. This was our preference for each dinner! And it has always been a favorite. Service can be a little slow because there is a crowd at (nearly) all times but the food is worth the wait.

Always open and always busy, which proves it has good food, great service and value for money. Fab view of the ramparts and ocean from the restaurant upstairs. We love the chicken malai kebabs with peshwari naan, and fresh orange juice.

The Fish Chettinad was amazingly tasty. The special ice cream was very good. The second floor open area overlooks the Fort and the light tower. But the overall cleanliness needs improvement.

Had lunch or dinner several times at the Indian Hut and enjoyed our food each time. The menu is rich and we didn't need to wait for too long, though it was always busy. We didn't try to find the best Indian food in town, we simply looked for healthy aromatic food. Good for budget travellers. Be sure to find... More

This place was horrific. Staff were friendly at first, curries came out and the chicken was raw, as if it had just been warmed in the sauce. We had a couple of bites of naan and (unfortunately) chicken before we realised. When we complained to the staff and informed them we were leaving without paying they became aggressive and insisted... More

Absolutely the worst food experience we had on our entire 10 day Sri Lanka trip. The place is located at the furthest end of the fort, right next to the rampart. It is cramped and run down. Bad ventilation and a few dodgy fans end up keeping the place very warm, even during early January! The service is bad, the... More

If your looking to visit sri lanka and be treated as a foreigner and get western service, this is not ur place. I feel like am in Asia when am in here. The service is fast during lunch hours but a bit slow in the evenings because you have to wait for the breads and the barbeque tikka's... The food... More

The restaurant is meant for Indian cuisine. However, do note that the Indian dishes are prepared in Sri Lankan way. The tandoori chicken was mouth watering and also the daal. The roti's (Indian bread) are not so good. They are thick and hard. The restaurant is crowded and one might have to wait. Make sure to have a seat by... More
