“best indian food in Colombo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

This place can be a bit crowded, the service poor and the price a bit over priced. But the food is really good and I miss their tomato soup and paneer tikka. the seating is very close to one another. and the service can be definitely improved.

“Tourist trap. Avoid”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant is marked as Top Choice in The Rough Guide but a total tourist trap. The food is expensive and mediocre. It is like any Indian restaurant in the UK. We were disappointed with the food as it was very greasy and bland. Sri Lankan food has so much to offer, there is no need to go there.

“Amazing place with great indian food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

The staff is very attentive and helpful. The recommendation from the helping staff is to be trusted. Ordered pepper chicken as starter and chicken sagwala as maindish.. amazing food.. can stay away from desert. Avg meal for 2 will cost USD 40-50 with a bottle of beer each.

Enjoy

“Friendly and fab”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

as soon as we arrived at the restuarant a friendly gentleman came and asked us how we were and if we would like to sit or takeaway. we were taking away yet he still invited us to sit at a comfortable table. The place was full of customers all enjoying devine smelling food. it was clean and well laid out. all staff were very friendly and the food arrived within minutes - best tandoorri chicken i have had in a looong time! we have since eaten there several time during our stay and have sat in a few times and each time the service and food is exceptional. GREAT place
