We spend an entire day looking in Nuwara Eliya for a good restaurant and ended up in a terrible pub. The next day we decided to tripadvisor it and found this amazing restaurant. It is by far the most professional looking restaurant that we saw in Sri Lanka and the food was absolutely the best, even by European standards. We... More

The Grand Kitchen is a must in the otherwise less than exciting choice of places to eat in Nuwara Eliya. Because of the queues we had to go somewhere else the first evening but arrived well before opening time the next night and just made it in...and it was worth the effort. The food is delicious and the service, despite... More

We were advised to go early as you could be in for a long wait. We managed to get the last table available at 6.30 PM. The waiter took orders 15 minutes later and as for the food it was a loooong wait. There were two young Arab couples on either side and we all waited and waited. The food... More

Looking around the town there were very limited things to do so when it was time to have dinner we weren't sure if our luck would stay the same as it did with the limited entertainment value.. we came across this resturant and knew the grand was an establishment we heard often from locals and reviewers alike and think god...

First of all, I love Indian food so I am easily satisfied when I get a piece of naan and some chicken tandoori in front of me. But this place is definitely one of the best places I have ever been. Loved the cheese garlic naan and the chicken tandoori, prices are a little higher than the average food prices... More

Went there for lunch (after reading glowing reviews) and were underwhelmed. The pakoras and samosas were apparently prepared by the same cook who is responsible for airline food, so they lacked taste. One of the two mains came out cold and we had to ask them to heat it up. Unfortunately, this didn't result in a noticeable increase in temperature.... More

Food was good but it was no where close to the authenticity indian. Ambience was average, restaurant was clean, staff was friendly. Service was very slow, there were flies inside the restaurant. Billing also took lots of time. We were a group of 8 people, they gave us back room which was hell boring, get table in main hall.
