We have visited Ammehula for dinner on two consecutive nights. It is certainly the best restaurant in the area for service, food quality and price! We would recommend the Sri Lankan curries and the grilled prawns. Saman, the owner, is wonderful. He is very accommodating,...More

I have found this place while walking in Negombo and repeated my visit more than once. The food is fresh, delicious, tasty, and like “made at home”. The prices are good, and the portions big enough. Best Vegetable Koti I have tried! Recommended !

Such good vibe! Nice music and decorations! You can see notes written all over the wall from people who have been there! Food was delicious and for dessert, banana fried with ice cream!

Doesn’t look like the kind of place I’d normally eat in so wanted to leave a review for others to know it was the best curry I had in two weeks on the island. Good prices and excellent service.

Tried here for the chicken cordon blue as was getting fed up having too much curry. The restuarant is quite nice inside, with customer comments written on the walls and the service was good. The food itself was good but not special and the prices...More

Great local food, reasonable prices and good service. The owner and staff are helpful and remember you on your next visit or in our case several visits during our holiday. The veg or chicken curry selection was wonderful and the samosas were also a favourite....More
