Whilst the service was good the food was just average, having had a number of curry's we decided on 'half a chicken in a basket'. This turned out to be two pieces of flatten chicken covered in a thick overcooked coating rather like Kentucky fried. Not what we were expecting no leg or wing. The seating for anybody with back...

Enjoyed a beautiful dinner here with my husband. Staff very accommodating and friendly. We enjoyed lobster alabaster and garlic prawns. The seafood was of good quality and the price reasonable. Has a beautiful view over the water and would have loved to come back during the day. Can easily walk here from The Surf Hotel. Highly recommend eating here.

We were recommended this restaurant by our tuk tuk driver and he booked a table for us. The food was excellent and the service in the restaurant was second to none. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this restaurant. We went for an evening meal but I would imagine if you went before sunset it would be a stunning setting, as... More

We had visited Aida Restaurant Bentota. It was fantastic view. We were ordered Mullet Fish and Jumbo Prawns. It was very fresh and tasty.

Visited this restaurant twice in a week. We were so impressed we took friends back. There is a good range of food to suit all tastes. We were served both times by Ashok who is so courteous and helpful. We had a complimentary salad starter which was very tasteful. Everyone enjoyed their food and the banana fritters were so good...

Ideally you need a table overlooking the river. Service is good. Being semi outdoors, we were extremely well served by a waiter who had to dodge the torrential rain of a tropical thunderstorm to bring our meal, cheerfully. We eventually had to retreat under cover

The location was great with brilliant views of the bentota river as a backdrop, but the food ordered was not great. The chicken was old, pre-cooked and chewy. For an experienced restaurant that was pretty average. The chicken burger patty was very garlicky and salty -- way to strong for my 7-year old. Got to see another family of four... More

The ambience of the restaurant was great but the food was below average. We ordered a biriyani which was nothing but a piece of grilled chicken placed on top of a bowl of rice. The mixed meat noodles had such a little meat, it was hard to spot any meat. Overall not worth the price.

Friendly staff, food delivery took sometime, beautiful views of the river, quality of food is not bad compared to other restaurants. We went there for lunch and ordered the grilled & fried prawn dish along with a friend chicken dish. The prawn dish was better than the chicken.

A very friendly restaurant that is situated on the banks of the river that can be clearly viewed whilst dining. We serve good seafood and tasty meals from curries to sandwiches and steaks.
