This was by far the best dish we have had in Sri Lanka during our stay. Served by the lovely Rojan who was very attentive,we ploughed our way through a prawn biriyani and prawn sweet and sour. It had been recommended to us by fellow holiday makers and so happy that we took their advice. It's opposite the Avani hotel... More

It was an evening to celebrate a 50th birthday. We were a group of 6 family members and a friend. We had a most memorable evening, a most memorable meal. The friendly ambience, the smiling and friendly staff, and the food - truly a wonderful way to end our trip here in Sri Lanka.

The food quality was very good. Rates were also very reasonable. The service was top notch. I do not remember the name of the waiter. We were served by a guy wearing glasses. He was one of the best I have come across. Absolute gem of a person who knows how to treat customers. Hats off.

Visited this place with my wife during a recent trip. Although the place looked good with nice decor and ambiance, our experience with was food was bad. The soup served with toasted bread and coconut roti was really nice. The cheese macaroni pasta was made in white sauce without any flavors with just cheese grated on top, served cold. Even... More

Nice clam place to have lunch/dinner beside a small lake. Friendly staff with tasty food. A little bit pricey, but totally worthy.

The food is nice, but not better than other places it is to expensive, and they forget to inform about the 25% extra tax. They are rude to their waiters and many do not like to listen to this when they eat

We ate here last night and enjoyed a good meal. The portions are massive so no need for starters. We were given some coconut rotis, which were absolutely delicious. For the main course, I had biryani a la golden grill with prawn curry - it was lovely and full of flavour. My husband had curry - which he said was... More
