Delicious spread & consistent quality as always. Their mutton briyani & mutton poriyal is another favourite our us. Great service by Viggy, Sun & team!

What an absolute disaster. Ordered for delivery early afternoon for a time slot between 6.30 and 7.30pm via their website. 7.30pm came around and no delivery to be seen. Called the restaurant and they said that its ready for picked up when we have already...paid for delivery. Said will call back. 15 min later, no call back. Called the restaurant, spoke to Nash and he says that he is contacting a Grab driver to send the items. They are blaming it on the UMAI site which was the site this restaurant uses. Not recommended at all and will not recommend to others. They have no inkling of what customer service is all about. Still sitting here writing this review, hungry and angry.More

We had the negombo XXL crabs for RM170. Actually the size was not really big. The crabs were tasty and fresh. Also ordered the mutton bone marrow which many had recommended to try. The spices on it was nice. The brinjal on the other hand...was not too good. Their masala tea was lovely with fresh apom sprinkled with brown sugar. Must definitely come back next time just for tea time fix of tea and apom.More

Stumble into this place by chance during one weekend morning. Have always known about the interesting restaurant lineup along the Kemuja street at Bangsar and decided to just try out this restaurant. A beautiful place indeed with very delicious Appam. Crispy on the edge and...Creamy in the centre. Paired with a cup of non sweetened Sri Lankan Milk Tea. A nice place to chill in the morning. They are known for their Sri Lankan crab recipes but decided to give it a try on another day. Will definitely back for the crabs.More

I would like to express my disappointment with the service of Lankan Crab. It was my first trip and will be the last. My family and I placed an order which included Lampris about 8.25. We had to wait for more than 45 minutes for...the Normal Lampris which my son ordered. I approached few waiters. The answer was - its coming, - there were few orders and mine is in the midst of cooking. One waiter had to ask my order twice to confirm the order. Another said will check and never came back till I had to stop and ask for the status again. I had to cancel the order. The manager was not apologetic and did not show any concern to find out the problem. Regret walking into Lankan Crab. I had to take my son to another restaurant where the food arrived within minutes. Expressing my dissatisfaction.More

We had lunch here and ordered the mutton varuval, plain briyani, brinjal moju, seeni sambal, two hot tea and two paal appam with brown sugar. We enjoyed our meal - full of flavor and portions were just right. The paal appam was a highlight with...wafer this crispy sides and a moist and creamy center. Would have preferred more options of vegetables but probably this is not the full menu considering we’re still under RMCO. Also liked the airy casual ambience near the porch. Excellent service - they were efficient and courteous. Prices are mid range - but I felt it was worth it. Will definitely come again.More

Restaurant is easy to find as it is right on the road. Many parking around so no problem if you drive. Food is amazing and you can choose from the menu or the buffet, but you can also have both. Everything is a must try...and if you are open to spicy food this is definitely your place.More
