Happened to visit the place with a fortunate stroke of serendipity! A little on the higher end but food is good. Lamb chops we had were delicious! Also it made me learn that 'Serendib' is an old Persian name for Sri Lanka!

Food 🥘 is amazing!!!! But the manager and the cashier is not good at all. They don't respect their customers. Their ego could ruin their business. The first thing in a business is CUSTOMER HANDLING!!! 👎🏿👎🏿👎🏿 No customers = No Business 😏

Right on the beach, which is dirty and smelly. Service was slow but Ok; we only had pizza, and would not order it again as it was doughy and greasy. We wouldn't go back.
