We went to the Elephant walk yesterday on a mission to explore a new cuisine with a visiting cousin.
We had indian food before and it can be hit and miss.
Here it is Sri Lankan, so different from your usual curry house, but yes they have to bow to the favorite british dish of Chicken tikka!
The lady help us to navigate through the menu and we decided on onion bajia and tuna cutler (more like a croquette) for starter to share, nice and not as oily as you may fear.
Then Chicken trinco , chicken with sweet mango and kerala lamb, all requested to be done as mild.
Nice mild spices and with sauces lighter that you'd expect.
Very tasty and the rottis yummm!
No space for desserts...
Until next time!!
Have you heard about the Elephant Walk's cooking class? It's supposed to be very good, although I never found out, despite paying for it....
I bought two places for me and my mother, paying the full price up front. Unfortunately I had to change the date and was told that I could rearrange provided I paid a 50% cancellation fee. This seemed reasonable as I had only given 24 hours notice of cancellation, but this was in August. Several months later, they haven't honoured the agreement. I'm still £195 out of pocket and several phone calls and e-mails to the restaurant have been completely ignored.
I'm really disappointed by the way we've been treated and would advise anyone interested in this course not to pay the full price up front. It's a shame because the food at the restaurant is lovely.
Brilliant Sri Lankan restaurant. I can’t attest to how authentic it is, but it’s certainly very tasty and a welcome change from the usual Indian school of curry cooking. We wimped out and asked for milder heat (which was actually quite tame) rather than very spicy heat. Nice rice dishes and friendly service - seemed like a quiet night when we visited, so obviously not as popular as it deserves to be.
Yum yum yum. Went here for a friend of Sri Lankan origin’s birthday and apparently the food is very authentic. But not quite as good as mother’s, naturally. Starters are a must have. The mutton rolls are incredible and we had this egg thing (fried egg in a thin wheat basket thing with really hot stuff on the side (you’ll know what I mean if you see the menu!)) which was wicked. Poppadums are crisp and not greasy and rather than the usual crap you normally get, they had two amazing flavoursome sauces to go with them. Fish roll things weren’t as good as the other dishes but masala dosai was amazing - and you can get it in an extra big portion if you want!
Fairly short menu on the main courses (bascially the same curries etc but for lamb, chicken, seafood etc). Devilled lamb was flavoursome and the meat really tender and the lamb with okra really good. Aubergines on the side were mushy and yummy and the fish and prawn curries were also good and fresh.
Forget what the menu says - they ask you what heat you want the curries when you order. And they don’t just do hot - they’ll happily cook you something Sri Lankan hot.
Lovely atmosphere, tinkling music in the background and cosy candle lit feel to the place.
Sri Lankan restaurant in West Hampstead. The Sri Lankans curries and the lamb rolls are really nice. Not the most romantic place I´ve been to but great service and good prices. Good to book in advance over the weekends.
Great curry house (all the better for being under 2 mins from my flat). I’d never eaten Sri Lankan food before and was v impressed. Like the previous reviewer said, it wasn’t all that spicey, but there was plenty of flavour. Attentive and genuine customer service.
This is a small but friendly restaurant that serves authentic Sri Lankan dishes. The devilled lamb and Gothamba rotis are really the best. Also if you like your food to be authentically hot then please mention it to your waiter as a lot of the heat has been moderated for London palates
