One of the best meals we had in Sri Lanka! (Possibly not helped by the fact we ate at far too many tour-focused 'rice and curry' places). The Sri Lankan Chicken Pepper Mustard Curry was light, packed with flavour (but not overpowered with chilli peppers),...More

Overall a wonderful dining experience. The ambience is fabulous, the decor gorgeous, the service amazing. The steak and rack of lamb were both delicious with great flavour, slightly tough, but for the flavour I could go with that. The presentation was beautiful. The meal could...More

To dine in Grand Hotel, which is a relic of the past, is an experience. Magnolia is an economical option, and an added plus is that it's open till late, while other restaurants in Nuwara Eliya are closed by 9ish. Food was decent, decor is...More
