They are really friendly and the food and price are fine too. I would recommend it to any person that visit the city. We supposed was it good for the amount of tourist we saw there.

With a big flag of trip advisor hanging from the roof. This place was quite nice, with a good ambience and friendly staff. Food was flavorful and the portions were quite big. Nice out door feel.

Nice restaurant, alright food but the staff made us made us uncomfortable. They really tried to sell us a hole bottle of wine even though I only wanted a glass. But they thought that I should buy the hole bottle and doggy bag the rest.

We stopped by here for lunch on our last day and, rationing out our last few rupees, ate handsomely for the very low price of 350 rupees per person (the set menu), plus drinks and the (automatic) 10% service charge. The food was tasty and came in generous helpings, despite the low price. And the waiter - who I assume... More

Read quite a few positive comments of this restaurant before we got here and it never fails us. My girlfriend and I ordered chicken Masala and seafood platter, both are great in taste. The seafood platter was not as rich as I imagine but it’s really cheap. Together with one pineapple juice and a Lion beer that cost us so... More

It's difficult to find a restaurant with good ambience in Negombo. They all tend to face the busy road, and the decor is usually so and so. Tusker, however, is a super cosy restaurant, and it is sheltered from the road outside. We had the pasta which is a big risk here in Sri Lanka, but it was actually quite... More

Had a really tasty rice and curry here for a reasonable price. Food was plentiful and kept coming if you wanted more. The friendly staff were happy to split an adult portion of pasta for the kids which was more than enough for them. The restaurant is really nicely presented and the beer is reasonably priced. Recommended And would go... More

Had a lovely lovely meal tonight at Tusker! The deco was pleasant, staff were friendly, and the food was amazing with equally amazing prices! We both had 3 courses and 2 drinks and was just over 5000 SL.RS (about £27!) I had one of the pasta dishes which I wouldn't normally go for but it was one of the best... More

Tusker Restaurant opened in May 2011 to cater to every food loving people. The cozy atmosphere and lots of open space is very relaxing. Beside Tusker Restaurant being solar powered we are using a lot of ingredients from our own farm, like eggs,pepper,chilies,bananas,mangoes,lime and lemon. We also support very much feeding mothers,children with or without special needs and our dear friends the dogs. Our restaurant is of course wheelchair friendly as well. Come with your family to enjoy the evening. We speak French,Dutch,English and German.
