I really enjoyed my meal, and this is coming from someone who doesn't usually enjoy Indian food. When we were at a loss about what to order, the waiter was helpful and recommended the popular dishes. It was pretty busy when we patronized the restaurant so service was slightly slow. We had ordered an extra bowl of rice but it... More

Visited here following a recommendation from our guide and reading reviews on Tripadvisor. We weren't disappointed. The food was all delicious and the service fantastic. My husband had tandoori chicken which he loves while I had chicken Thadi which was also really tasty! We arrived at just after six and joined a queue of maybe 4/5 other groups. We didn't... More

We came based on the reviews posted and this establishment certainly didn't disappoint. Well spiced and flavoured curries and meats with excellent chefs special Indian ice cream to finish! It is certainly more expensive than a roadside/local joint but you pay for a little glamour and impeccable service (still much cheaper than in NZ). We had to wait for 45... More

We arrived just before it opened at six thirty to join a queue of about thirty, but we're seated without any problems. Ordered some Tiger beer but they had run out, ordered a get before we realised that they cost more than the main course! That apart the food was very good and the waiters cheery.

Delicious food! Expected it to be busy - it was. But we just turned up when we were ready and shares a table. Couldn't have worked out better if we'd planned.

We were a vegetarian lot and one of us had further restrictions to work with. The staff were upfront about what could and could not be arranged. They did help us out with a meal. We had the lunch thalis and they were delicious. Easily the best Indian food we had in SL.

We went here around 20:00 and had to stand in the queue for another half hour. This place is busy and that is for a reason. The food is delicious and it is really value for money. Service is nice and swift. All in all a pleasure to have eaten here. The restaurant does not take reservations so it is... More

They serve good indian food although I personally prefer a stronger flavoured masala tea. Service was fast and efficient. Well worth the price. Each dish was between LKR 800-1000. Between the two of us we had one set of butter chicken, mutton masala, pakora. We both had a masala tea & lime juice each. Total came up to LKR3800 with... More

In general Nuwara Eliya is a food desert, especially after being so spoilt with amazing food in the South and eg. Ella. We tried this restaurant and we're lucky to get there a while before it opens, cause around 18.10 a queue in front of the door starts to form (the door opens at 18.30). The place is busy, and...
