“Great food at moderate price”
Reviewed 1 March 2014

Sri Lankan cuisine. Great tasting food at a reasonable price. Was fully packed on Saturday night when we walked in. Waited at the bar and a table opened up fairly quickly. It was a stone's throw from our hotel, glad that we tried it out. I highly recommend this restaurant.

“Try and enjoy”
Reviewed 27 January 2014

We found this restaurant in tripadvisor.com. It is very closed to the City Hall. On Saturday noon it was not crowded. The first half hour we are alone in the restaurant. The waitress was friendly and helpful. We have choosen the mixed plate. (various vegetables, meats with special black lentils bread)
We love the spicy meals, but it was not hot.
The cleanliness in this place excellent.
If you like the special flavours, we recommend to try.

“Worth several visits”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

As my wife would tell you, if a waitress says the curry will be hot in a European restaurant, it probably isn't. At Curry Insel, it most definitely is. She chose a hot chilli chicken curry, was warned by the waitress, and now proudly boasts that she survived the hottest curry she's ever had. I had a mild curry and enjoyed it too! Interesting menu which we'd like to revisit to try various options. Good, friendly service.

“Fantastic food, cosy atmosphere”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

This was a great place to eat. We found it by looking at tripadvisor and so pleased that we did. It was very cosy and welcoming. The staff were very friendly and were also helpful about making suggestions as what to eat on the menu. I had a vegetarian dish that came with 5 different taster curries which I would really recommend. They were delicious. If you were going at a weekend then it might be an idea to book. We went on a Friday night and managed to get in but it was very popular. It was also reasonably priced for the food that we got too.
