Great find. Probably best Sri Lankan curry during our time here. Banana flower curry the highlight. Very good value and nice fresh fruit for dessert included in price. Unfortunately no alcohol licence but all about the tasty food.

We ate here one night and it was lovely and very well priced. It doesn't have a liquor licence but food was good and the staff are so lovely. We went back every afternoon for fresh juices and milkshakes.

We spent a month holidaying in Sri Lanka and this was my absolute favourite Sri Lankan meal! We got the vegetarian curry meal which had 5 different curries with rice, poppadums, chutney, water, and fresh fruit. The curries were so delicious and full of flavour....More

Nice little place right next to the train track. This could be bothersome, but for me it added to the charm. Food is amazingly well flavored and spiced. Heat on request is perfect. Amazing value too. 800 lkr for the rice and curry in the...More
