Went to Rashnaa the other day. Been a while since I'd had Sri Lankan and I had a hankering for Southern Indian as well. We got: vada, masala dosa, and one of the Sri Lankan "rotty" (roti) dishes. I thought it was good, but nothing special. Certainly no better than what I'm used to for Southern Indian. The coconut chutney was quite nice, but that's the only one they supplied with the dosa or vada. The vada seemed pre-fried not fried to order and wasn't as crisp as it could have been. The caramelized onions and other bits in it were good, though. The potatoes in the dosa were quite big chunks that were mostly undercooked. The flavor of the masala was decent, but nothing special. The sambhar was kind of flat. I liked the "rotty" a decent amount (actually reminded me of matzoh brei with Indian flavors), though it seemed like it needed a sauce or chutney or something. Maybe it's normally eaten as a rice alternative.
Picked this because I've been to some of the chain Indian places in other cities that have been recommended here. Was hoping to find a really good independent/local place. If I lived in the neighborhood, I'd return, but as an out of towner, it wasn't worth it, really.
