“Dilapidated and poor food”
Reviewed December 20, 2013

The service was not great and it took a long time for the food to arrive. Ordered paper-dosai and idly, but it took them 20 minutes to realise that they had run out of idly. We then asked for the vadai-set instead which was ok, however the paper-dosai was not good at all. Chutney was very watered down and the sambar not impressive either.

Not good value for the quality and ambience of restaurant.

“Very Good South Indian Restaurant”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

The hotel located at the heart of the city with ample parking. The foods served are of good quality with a reasonable price. But the service is very slow.

“Needs to be better managed”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

This comes across as an Indian Udipi restaurant but in reality is nowhere closer to the service or cleanliness they are famous for. Service is so poor that we waited almost 20 min for the bread to arrive and when it did they served two portions. Food was warm when it should have been hot and the staff seemed new with no training and apparently showed signs of having never worked in a restaurant before. While picking up the used dishes the waiter dropped food remnants twice - once on to me and the second time on another group member.

It used to be called Shanti Vihar earlier.

“Not my kind of place”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

I actually don't recommend this restaurant over any other Indian restaurant in Colombo. They served us very cold "Ulundu Wadai" when it supposed to be hot. The service is poor and quality of the food is just OK. I am sure this was one of the best in the past, but now the amount of restaurant options available in Colombo, these guys just lost in the competition. Don't expect quality south indian food here.
