This review is written for Amarasinghe's garden bungalow property (200 meters from the property shown on the photo on this page). Don't confuse the two, the garden is worth the effort for 200 m more to arrive. After a few days somewhere else, I looked around an researched other possibilities... and ran onto this lovely garden in the outskirts of...

They dont have half of food on the menu. Fried rice was a bit tasteless compared to other I had on Sri Lanka. Grilled fish (tuna) ... well had much better in my contry and we dont even have fresh sea fish. Also the portions were a bit too small but atleast prices were good.

I haven't eaten so good in Sri Lanka as in this place. Firstly owners are sweet, food is cooked in front of you, prices are incredibly low and the taste is delicious. Go there if you are hungry and like to eat good :)!

Had visited this place only for dinner and have not stayed here. The place gets packed around 8 pm and you might have to wait a little or sit in the inside or back area which is not that great. We managed to get a table after 10 min but had to share the other end with two more guests....

We came here 2 nights with the guys from JJ's hostel. 10 of us one night and 12 the following night. They were very accommodating, sat us all together despite the restaurant being busy. Our food all came at the same time, we had a mixture of fried rice, roti, kottu and a couple of grilled fish dishes. Everyone really...

We called in for lunch and opted for 3 different types of rotti (cheese, chicken and seafood). It was very busy and they were turning a lot of customers away, so there was quite a wait for our food. The rottis were very good and very cheap but we ended up cancelling the third type as we were stuffed and...

We were at their restaurant both nights we stayed in Mirissa. The rotti was delicious and sea food prepared on the grill looked tasty as well. You need to be ready for little bit of waiting as this is truly family run place and when it gets full things slow down a bit but watching the ladies preparing the food...

This was a lovely place with great food. The rooms were updated and spacious. The view from the balcony was okay. It was a little tricky finding this place at night as there are not many signs and the path is very dark at night. We would consider staying there again

We went for dinner to the restaurant and have been heavily disappointed. It turned out that they had almost nothing from the menu that we wanted to order. We ended up having standard roties that you basically get at every corner. We had to wait more than 45 minutes for the food. When our drinks had still not arrived at...
