Amrith (Aumrith) Indian Restaurant is located at 147, Vajira Road, Havelock Town, Colombo-5 (Phone: 11-4877888). Its the corner where Havelock Road and Vajira Road meet. There is a large parking space outside the restaurant and a signboard of Aumrith MasalaTalk greets the visitors. Public Bus number 138 (from Colombo Fort Railway Station) passes by this restaurant both ways of its journey. Its open for lunch from 11 am to 3 pm and dinner from 6 pm to 11 pm. The restaurant is quite large with enough space between tables. It does not get really crowded, so a relaxed meal is possible here. The food is a bit more expensive as compared to many other Indian restaurants in Colombo. For example a Chana Bhatura (Chick peas curry with deep fried refined-flour bread) costs LKR 285 which along with service charge (10%) and VAT (12%) comes to LKR 350. A plain tandoori roti costs LKR 128 including tax while most vegetarian curries add up between LKR 400 and 650 and non-vegetarian curries around LKR 800. Desserts are priced around LKR 350 with taxes. Read more...

I went there for lunch but was planning to go to the nearby Paradise Sri Lankan Vegetarian Food Court later and hence ordered only a Chana Bhatura. The Bhatura was not as soft as it is supposed to be. The dough had not been fermented properly or not fermented at all. The accompanying chick peas curry was small in quantity and ordinary in taste. This was not authentic Indian food. And certainly expensive (See the menu picture below). I thought if Amrith wanted to charge premium pricing for food, they could at least try to cook it better. But I only tried one preparation. Maybe the rest of them taste better.

If one is interested in economy vegetarian Indian food, there is the cheaper and crowded Sri Vihar Indian Restaurant on Havelock Road not far from Amrith.
