  • Buryani Set

    A$75.00 per person

    Multiple dates available
    PLEASE NOTE - price is per set not per person Buryani is a dish to be celebrated and shared and we encourage you to do just that. Each week is a new version, but the menu always includes a chatty pot of buryani, baked in the oven, made with saffron scented rice layered with some sort of curry affair, topped with a cashew temper. With this comes a sambol and a raita, or something similar, and papadums. Always papadums. Watch out for our guest chef series where the set structure remains yet the flavours go wild. The set is good to share between two to three people however you will need to add to extras from the normal menu to complete your meal.

    Wow! Seems to get better every time! What a lovely dinner - the whole family loved it. Service was wonderful, the cocktail in elephant was exotic and the fish curry was to die for. We loved it all and we'll be back soon! Thanks Lankan team!

    Lankan continues to delight time and time again. We left completely satisfied with the delicious food & the wonderful service, and all our senses wanting more but our tummy's more than full.

    Lankan Filling Station is outstanding. We had a vegan banquet - the flavours were AMAZING. I'd actually recommend this banquet over the omnivore one we had at another visit - the food was full of interesting tastes and flavours. We all left incredibly happy!

    Loved the beers and wines on offer in carafes. Best rotis ever! Prawn and Tamarind curry was incredible. Friendly understated service. Good value. Looking forward to going back.

    This was our first experience with Sri Lankan food (although we’ve eaten a lot of Indian food), and the server was very helpful with recommendations. The egg hopper was fantastic, and we loved the potato and pork belly curries. Overall, the food and service were fantastic, and we will go back the next time we are in Sydney!
