Ordered the standard chicken curry and rice. Love it, various things served with it. Ask for spicy, not medium. About 850r for the lot. Would be back again

We were recommended this place. Has a reasonable choice but the large size is too big for us. Had to wait some time for an order to be taken and again sometime before it arrived. Tasty but not the best. Good value

This is the place where your driver drops you off. Sat here for an hour, all visitors arriving were tourists. Had spring rolls, the chicken dish and some chop suey. Spring rolls were ok, chicken also ok but with dry and old chicken pieces and...More

Went here because of the good recommendations on TripAdvisor. Sadly the place is rated mostly because drivers bringing their guests here. Total crowded. Way to expensive. Food.... Well ok but as soon as you know Sri Lanka food it is highly disappointing.

The food is very pricey and very mediocre. For a gastronomic vegetarian Asian family, options are very less. Usually it is frequented by westerners and so probably caters to their palette. What was appalling was the wastage of food that each table sent back. It's...More

This is typically a restaurant where tour guides and drivers take their customers. The chicken curry was excellent. The chicken fried rice was very bland. Unfortunately the toilets did not flush and there was no toilet paper. Unacceptable !More

Food is average. They have a lot to choose from. The view is amazing, you see a rumbling river in the mountains.

Good choices and large portions. Shared the curry with my teenage monster and we still left some. Great view and really handy for the war graves cemetery. Can't go wrong here.
