This is the second time I have been pleasantly surprised by an Indian restaurant. Aasife is located on Ethul Kotte, right next to Burger King. It has been there for almost two years and I cannot believe I have not been there. Until now.
They have an extensive menu with all the Indian favorites, especially biriyani. Their variety was pretty impressive as there were about 8 different types of biriyanis to choose from.
You can't go to an Indian restaurant and not get the Paneer Butter Masala (Rs. 400). While this wasn’t as good as the one we had at Chola, it was a close second. The paneer could have been cooked longer because it was denser than we liked, but the excellent gravy made up for that fact.
The Kerala Chicken Masala (Rs. 480) was also really delicious. There were a lot chunky chicken bits to go around with a spicy, albeit a little peppery gravy. The paneer masala and the chicken did wonders with the naan, as you can imagine.
Their beverages menu was nothing special, with drinks like fruit juices and milkshakes. The Chocolate Milkshake (Rs. 300) while not the most authentic thing to get here, was very satisfactory. It was very chocolatey and had very little sugar, which is always a plus for me.
Their service is excellent. From the moment we entered, we were received with nothing but friendliness and accommodation. They were more than keen to give us separate bills when we asked, and packed our food. The food arrived within 10-15 minutes and everything was served warm.
Enjoy some great Indian cuisine, especially biriyani.
Aasife is the newest biriyani spot to hit Colombo. We went to check it out ad here's what we thought.
සිංහල ඔය ඔක්කොම කෑම ටික අරගෙනත් අපට ගියේ රු.2000ක් වගේ මුදලක්. හැබැයි ඉතින් හතරදෙනෙක් ට වුණත් කන්න ඇහැකි තරමේ කෑම තොගයක් ලැබුණා.
සිංහල මුලින් ම මේසෙට ආවේ ෆලූඩා එක. බිව්වයින් බිව්වේ නෑ මහත්තයෝ මේ වගේ රස ෆලූඩා එකක්. මේක හරියට අතුරුපස තුනක් එකට දාලා හදලා වගේ.
