Navyug Vegetarian Restaurant is situated just off Galle Road in Colombo and serves authentic Indian vegetarian food. It is situated in a big colonial bungalow with portico, verandah and several big rooms. I visited with friends in the day of departure from Colombo for dinner. The food was prepared in authentic north Indian way, including popular south Indian dosa with coconut chutney. The spices were just right. After eating under-cooked rice and rotis for more than six days in ourSri Lankan sojourn, I was glad to have found this hotel for a tasty and memorable dinner. Itis a place I would recommend to the Indian visitors to Colombo without hesitation.

Tried a mixture of their vegetarian dishes along with naan, parata's, poori and dosai. They were good. Place could have been better maintained but it was value for money. Good place to try out.

Visited for dinner on a Sunday night. The interior is fairly ordinary, although the tables have indents in them filled with spices and covered with a glass top. Very nice, although the spices have attracted weevils and may need regular changing.

The menu is very diverse - the standard Indian fare is present (palak paneer, butter chicken, etc...), along with a few unusual mutton dishes and even a crab dish which is very tasty. A decent selection of breads and biriyani rounds it off.

The food is very tasty for the price, which is reasonable. However, the service leaves much to be desired. The food took around 45 minutes to arrive (there were only 3 other tables occupied), and the servers and supervisors walk around but do not notice when water glasses need re-filling. They were quick to remove the curry dishes when we had finished them, but had to be asked to remove others when we had finished the whole meal.

The menu makes no mention of the prices being excluding tax, except on the back of the menu. This can be very misleading as the standard practice (even in 5-star hotels) is to print this on every page where it is visible to the guest).

The average rating is given because the food is really decent for the price, but the long time taken to serve it and poor service make me wonder if it will be as good when the restaurant has more tables occupied.
