The pizza is fantastic! Some of the best I have ever had. Nice thin crust with awesome toppings. To top it off, the lady who runs the place is super sweet as well :)

Like many people already said - don't judge the book by its covers! When it comes to eating I tend to be very picky person, so when we were searching for this place (because of tripadvisor), we were disappointed when we saw it from outside. But my craving for something non- related to sri lankan cuisine won! Thank God it... More

Excellent pizzas were served, little pricey looking at the seating facility though. Operated by an Asian muslim family, the quality of food was pretty good

We visited quite a few restaurants in Sri Lanka to have a pizza. This one was hands down the best amongst them. The thin-crust pizza was perfectly baked and had just the right admixture of ingredients. It was raining while we were seated at the restaurant and that only added to the delight of savouring the pizza.

this place is honestly delicious - do not judge a book by its cover. The place on the inside is covered with notes from previous customers saying how much they love the food and the lady who works here is absolutely lovely. My boyfriend had the vegetarian pizza and I had the same (without cheese) and she added on lots... More

Nice little restaurant. You will miss it very easy because it's very small. It's directly near by the street. Check it with Google maps. Nice pizza and nice staff.

It's good pizza and there's plenty to choose from one size of pizza (approx 12") the cheapest starts from 700 ruppes (cheese and tomato) The location is not ideal it's sold from a shack by the side of the road, it's not a restaurant. Still all in all good food.

This is the best pizza I found in Sri Lanka. Shakina is a very friendly and gracious host. She also is full of useful information about the area. Definitely worth a visit.

If you are in the area you should check out this little pizza joint. It doesn't look very welcoming from the outside but inside you get a good pizza if you desire. The woman is very friendly. Also there is the possibility to eat pasta and burgers. The prices for the pizza vary from 700 - 1400 rp.
