Wasantha's is a small restaurant runned by mother and daughter. They are very friendly and the food is good. We had the fish curry.

Certainly among the best rice and curry we had during our trip. Absolutely worth a visit! But the one “$” should at least be a “$-$$”, since 850 R is not among the cheapest.
