The food was delicious! Best food we had in Sri Lanka. Many different curries in the buffet and 700 rupees is a very reasonable price. Food was valued more than the price. It was very clean in the restaurant and toilet as well. The restaurant...More

Good food and the little girl who takes your order is precious. The price is steep compared to other buffets, but we really enjoyed our lunch!
