A very busy place, and the food was a great experience. The food was a reasonable price and is perfect for your kids since it is right next to the park

After reading the reviews we expected a great Sri Lankan place with good food and friendly staff. Unfortunately the staff was not what we expected. The food was good and also the atmosphere (real Asian) was nice. So come here for cheap and good kotthu:)

The mixed curry plate was cheap, filling and delicious. You're able to try most of SL's famous dishes in this one small place. Not somewhere to linger but good for a quick, tasty lunch.
