I had some of the best Sri Lankan rice & curry I've ever had. A wide variety of different vegatarian plates was served, all of which tasted amazing. The owner even dropped us back at our hotel.

We were there around 7-8 pm I think and when we left it was full. So I think I will be open until 10 pm at least.
