“Food was ok. Very bad attitude.... Poor Ethics..”
Review of Chefs Curry Bowl - CLOSED

Chefs Curry Bowl
Cuisines: Sri Lankan
Restaurant details
Reviewed 9 February 2017

Food was like ok in this restaurant. But, since there is only one person, serving takes a long time. What irked us most was, during our lunch, I had ordered tea while my hubby had ordered coffee. The owner lady by mistake brought coffee for both of us. Unfortunately, we found it only after tasting. We asked her to give Tea for me which she was fine with. But, she didn want to waste the coffee and wanted to give it to our driver who had accompanied us!!!! Even though we had sipped it. We told her that we have sipped it, but she wasnt perturbed and she proceeded to give it to tat poor guy. What a pathetic attitude.We were shocked by her action. thankfully on our signal, he didn take it.

Whether she s owner or someone who s workin there, there is no respect for individuals and tat attitude is somethin tat disgusted a lot.. Would never recommend this place. Who knows what they had reused in their food for their customers.

We found this place by chance and regretted that did it too late. It's clean, pleasant, and sea food is great there! The price is way lower than in hotel restaurants nearby. The manager/hostess is very helping, always smiles and ready to assist. We loved it!

We visited this restaurant during our individual trip through Sri Lanka. By that time we had seen different restaurants of different price ranges - from basic food stall to luxury restaurant. In total we must admit that Chefs Curry Bowl is not recommendable in service and quality.

- The traditional curry is served and payed per piece. The restaurant offers rice plus 2 elements, anything further is an (overpriced) extra (this is not usual in other restaurants as the Sri Lankan curry lives from variety)
- Portions are very small (which is the case for curries, but these were very tiny): Example: we ordered Raita and it came in a 2-spoon portion for an exaggerated price
- Chicken masala was fade and again, small portion
- Prices are, as mentioned, not reasonable and it is recommend (if you however decide to go there) to check prices before ordering
- We accept service to be low if the food in result is good, but here slow service and low quality rules
- We were the only guests in the restaurant.The lady (owner and service staff in one) observed us through the entire time of our stay from her desk (a bit awkward), which was not due to hospitality.
- As other guests already mentioned: The bill had inconsistencies and extra charges.

Whenever we read about someone reviewing a restaurant as a "gem", as a visitor in this case did, we challenge their experience and judgement of food and service.

Stopped here en route between Galle and Dedduwa. Needed bite to eat and driver suggested it would be good. Well looked after property, with flowering plants outside and nicely furnished inside, though simple. A very wide-ranging menu (with some quirky spellings) gave us plenty of options. Settled for vegetable fried rice, cola and lime soda. The latter was the best I had all trip, and the rice was absolutely delicious. Light, tasty with wonderfully finely shredded veg. Total bill was around 1000 slr = £5 - fantastic value, and one of the best light lunches we had all holiday.

I was on my way to Galle and thought of stopping by at this cozy little restaurant & I must say that it was worth it! The food was delicious & the prices were reasonable & it was a beautiful and a calm place. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.
