“Delicious and inexpensive Indian food”
Reviewed March 12, 2011

We ate here our first full day in Colombo, and settled on this place, as it was pouring all day, and there was a Hindu temple nearby where I wanted to take photos. The restaurant is near the Pettah and the Fort Railway Station. It's not great in terms of atmosphere, but the food is wonderful.
We were greeted by who I believe to be the owner or manager, who was very friendly and helpful. They usually only serve a full Indian menu at dinner, so he told us what Indian dishes were available at lunch. My husband ordered a chilli chicken curry dish, and he was warned that it was very spicy, but it ended up being a perfect amount of spice for him (probably far too much for most) and I ordered channa masala, which was absolutely delicious. We had roti with our meal, which was also very good.
It was just Rs.900 (£5) for 2 large dishes, 2 rotis and 2 large bottles of water.
