Taste, service, ambience - perfect! We ordered Chicken Kothu, Egg Appam (hoppers), Chicken devil starter, string hoppers & chicken curry. Totally enjoyed the food. Will be back again. The staff are courteous, friendly & the seating is comfortable. Quite a busy place, so preparation takes...some time.More

My wife and I went hunting for great Srilankan food. Found this place. Drove 35miles to be treated with some great food. Awesome ambience.

Excellent experience of Sri Lankan authentic cuisine, friendly and helpful staff and cosy interior. Extensive menu and nearly all vegetarian options were actually vegan or easily veganised. We visited for our wedding anniversary but booked an hour before arrival, & were not disappointed. Vegan starter...platter - lightest fluffiest vadai we've ever had, veg crispy spring rolls, cauliflower and cassava chips - all delightful. We had the vegetarian banana leaf platter and loved it all - fully vegan if you remove the raita & sweet (gulab jamun). All so well balanced and surprisingly enough for 2 to share, we ordered vegan kothu as an additional dish and had to take it all home (I love leftovers, so no complaints!) Star of the show however was the appam (hoppers) for dessert - coconut milk with jaggery, eaten with our hands and finished in seconds, light and fresh with no cloying sugary aftertaste. I want more!! Overall, an amazing local find, and we'll be back!!More

We had such a delicious meal here! The atmosphere, service and food were all fantastic. The wait staff were attentive and so thoughtful. The food was absolutely incredible- we cannot recommend this place highly enough. 5 stars! We’ll definitely be going back.

Delicious lunch with generous portions, reasonably priced. The banana leaf rice meal (Virundhu Sappadu) was just incredible. Will be back to try the hoppers.

Decorators painting &drilling in restaurant on a Saturday at 3pm. Sat down complained but was told owners insisted on them opening and serving while working. This has to be a against the health regulations( paint fumes, dust and the workers had no masks). There was...a dehumidifier in the entrance to the restaurant. It completely put us off so we asked for our ordered food to be packed up so could take it away. As we had travelled 25 mins to this restaurant the food was cold when we got home and veg dishes were really oiley( okra and Aubergine). Total waist of money , ruined experience and will never go to this restaurant again. Paid £45 for this miserable experience!More

We had the plain hoppers with seeni sambal and Jackfruit curry, just tasted like food back home. The cassava chips and baby jackfruit cutlet was so unique in flavour, with the perfect amount of spice. So happy to have found this place where there's so...much vegan choices. Looking forward to trying more of their dishes next time.More

We were looking forward to dining at Virundhu for a long time, finally got a chance to enjoy authentic Srilankan food in Pinner/Harrow. I’ve been to many other Srilankan restaurants in the area and nothing can come near Virundhu. Their mutton rolls actually had mutton...in them and not just potatoes!! I’d definitely recommend their mutton Kothu - what a beautiful mix of flavours. Clean food with superb service in a cosy atmosphere - will I be returning? A DEFINITE YES!!!!More

Very expensive. Only 3 idiyappam sothi & sambal they charged me £7.50 plus service charge. Seafood koththu £15 plus service charge. Very little portion. Its a joke.
