If you're looking for ambience, go elsewhere. If you're looking for tasty, inexpensive Indo-Lankan food in Beirut, eat here. My husband and I didn't know what to order, so a patron suggested fried rice. It was good. The three sauces to accompany the rice were excellent. They also brought out fried chicken, delicious roti, and interesting samosas for us. We... More

This place is not a high class restaurant. Basically you will find this place crowded with the working class people most of the time. The Prices are very cheap. You can't expect a high class food and presentation in such a cheap price. If you like food from Southern part of India, you will find most of it here. Also... More

We went here after almost two weeks of Lebanese food, obviously delicious, but when you need a change come here! Yes, it's basic, but the food is inexpensive and delicious. We had (more than enough) food for 3 people + 3 beers for less than $20. Make sure you try the daal and the chicken, both are excellent. Really a... More

I was prompted to go there having seen another review " Best Restaurant in... More

Yes, it's located above a grocery store. Yes, it has plastic tables and chairs. Yes, its nothing fancy. But this is the best restaurant in Beirut - both for the food and the service. The owners are from Madras in southeast India, and their food is the best and most authentic I have had outside of the Indian subcontinent. There... More

My daughter, who is a student at A.U.B., took me to Indo-Lanka for dinner one night. She had found out how good SriLankan food is! She cautioned me that the restaurant is "very plain, very basic, like one of the lo-lo's in the Caribbean." And she was right. You enter a tiny Asian grocery store, go all the way to... More
