A group of friends visited for lunch, nice place to go in the day time to really appreciate the setting and lovely views. Had a delicious lunch and amazing service by Shaveen and his colleagues made the meal even more enjoyable, so thank you!

We went there for lunch and it was packed. So had to wait a while. The cocktails were great as was the food. We sat on the balcony which overlooks the water. It was good value for money as well.

Experience the fun and quirky side of Sri Lankan culture, food & hospitality at A Minute by Tuk Tuk. This unique lounge is first and foremost marked by its incredible location, on the eastern side of the Historic Galle Fort, with a wide verandah overlooking the pristine indian ocean. The vibrantly colorful logos pay homage to the lounge's namesake the Sri Lankan 'Tuk Tuk', which is today as synonymous with the country as tea and spices. This almost flamboyant style extends to the restaurant's menu where the chef has dreamed up a variety of Asian inspired tapas, salads and mains that will indulge your taste buds with previously unimagined combinations, all paired with a wide and vibrant selection of wines, cocktails and juices.
