We wanted to go to Sakura based on it's good ratings. Our hotel called the restaurant to ask if it was open. In fact they wanted to keep it closed that night, but because of the phone call they opened it just for us. The owner's hospitality was incredible. They took really good care of us. The buffet-style food was very good, too, we were able to try a great variety of tasty curries and vegetables.

If you come to Dambulla, you should definitely stop by!

Good Sri Lankan buffet served very enthusiastically by the owner & family . Unusual local vegetables cooked differently but tasty . Enjoyed our lunch & warm hospitality.

We were looking for a place to have lunch in Dambulla centre but none of the places we looked at seemed particularly interesting as we wanted Sri Lankan food. we hopped on a tuk tuk and made the best decision of the day to eat at Sakura! very welcoming staff family run restaurant serving a delicious mainly vegetarian buffet with lots of variety. it was all you can eat plus dessert for 950 per person but taking into account the quality it was absolutely worth it! loved the dessert made by the owners (Silva) wife! thank you for a great lunch!
