Grand Indian is one of the best places to eat in Nuwara Eliya. It's in all the guide books with good reason. Great menu to choose. You must get here early to stand a chance of getting a table at a normal time. You can't reserve so be ready to get in a que from 6.30am onwards. Well worth it!

We went for a late lunch just before they closed at 3:30pm. They were still full, we waited a while and they managed to seat us within 10 minutes. The food is really good but we happened to notice that the rice that they serviced us was maybe just a bit under cooked, we did point it out but the... More

When we turned up this place was full . They managed to seat us with a couple who had nearly finished at a table for 6. A little odd but we were most grateful as the food and service were excellent. Our driver ate with us and was also impressed with the curries.

Great restaurant but busy so advisable to book. Because the restaurant was so busy earlier by the time we got to our desserts all the Indian ones were off the menu! We were very impressed with the service and food. All the Indian dishes that we ordered for our main course were extremely good.

Not too many options in Nuwara Ellya and so this is very popular- very good Indian food & excellent service So we ended up eating all our dinners here. Be prepared to be early (6:30 opening) or be prepared to wait as it is always full.

The staff managed to fit in our family of 7 adults on what was a busy night, they were so genuinely accommodating. We were outside with blankets and heaters and the sunset.. it was fab (other guests were probably delighted we weren't inside). The food was an Indian taste from home (if that makes sense). All the traditional UK favourites,... More
