No, it is not the best Sri Lankan food we have ever had but the food taste quite good with large portions. It is not that expensive for its location either. Every restaurant in every waterfront in the world charges a lot more than the non-waterfront restaurants. We ordered Red Rice with a fish curry and a pumpkin (spelled Pumpking)... More

We went here to get lunch. Since it is off season we were the only guests at that moment. It's a tiny place runned by a family, and has a nice view on the ocean. The menu gives many options. We ordered a calamari and grilled chicken dish. The food was home cooked and made with fresh ingredients. The sauces... More

Brilliant Sri Lankan curry for £4.50. Right on the beach, candle lit dinner. Cocktails good too. Only watch out is the toilet- go before you leave your hotel!

We would definitely recommend this place to eat a great curry with a view on the beach. The place looks good and the staff is kind.

Didn't meet low expectations. Ordered deboned fish - came with bones but cut up in a way that made it basically inedible. Curry was fine but bland to cater to non-spicy tourist preference. We are not Sri Lanka expecting top hygiene marks but this place scores particularly low on that front too. Music was good.

in September 2010 we ate there almost every night, variety of curries and local beer. I remember friendly stuff (the owners), interesting stories =) and great atmosphere. We also bought homemade spices and I know that the owner give cooking lessons.

Food was good and reasonably priced. We went there at night when they have out door seating by the beach. Service is quite slow but staff is very friendly and can give lot of useful tips to explore Sri Lanka

Good place, delicios fish, curry not very good by the way. Romantic place near the sea. Bad russian pop music. We suggest them to add rock music. And rave a little. Good beer with lion.
