Its lucky to have a Sri Lankan restaurant in the middle of city Bangkok. We ate 2-3 days after eating local foods. We loved to have Sri Lankan foods there. Good service with reasonable price.

It was really nice to be there because I was fed up eating Thailand Food and looked for Sri Lankan Food at Thailand. Finally I found this place and food is tasty. I felt that I am at Sri Lanka since I was able to eat “Polos Maluwa”. Highly recommend for Sri Lankans who are visiting Thailand…I am sure this... More

If you can't go to Sri Lanka to taste heavenly food, then come give Manel's a try. Two restaurants located near Indra Market. Don't settle for Indian. Go for the best.

Most of our meals except the breakfast was taken at this restaurant. We thoroughly enjoyed various types of food provided to us. Best restaurant in town in my opinion. Very polite staff. Clean and tasty food.

I have eaten at this place around 3 or 4 times now over the course of the past 3 years. Yesterday was my latest time there. They never disappoint, are very friendly and the food is always delicious, and fresh. Having lived in Sri Lanka for 16 years (grew up there), I can tell you it's the real thing. For... More

This unpretentious place packs a punch and how! Their curries are a melange of flavors that I have rarely experienced at the same table. We ordered their meals (veg meal, chicken meal) and each was 100 baht! We were so satisfied at the end of the meal, we ended up tipping 100 baht. When you talk of food from the... More

Good food when we search Sri Lankan food in Bangkok but service is poor as well as foods are really expensive. we ate since we badly needed Sri Lankan taste at that time. I think they get the benefit of that opportunity.
