This Restaurant is popular with the Tour Guides who bring the Tourists for a meal. While there is a wide variety in the menu, the food is tasy and well presented , it is average and expensive. Poor ambience and service needs to imrpove

The food is tasty and well prepared though it is a bit expensive when compared with other restaurants in the South beach areas. Have been coming to this place for food for the last 10 years.

Decent restaurant serving asian and western dishes. My hubby and I ordered a lot of seafood and only half tasted fresh. My cuttlefish especially was very rubbery. This is your typical sri Lankan tourist restaurant.
