Somewhat less touristy place frequented by locals. Delicious Deviled fish and chicken. Great Kottu. Very friendly staff. Not particularly comfortable seating, but you'll live. If you're looking for a casual place for lunch or dinner and are willing to go a bit off the beaten...More

Good place to dine. Various selections of curries. Clean and good place. Its 200 meters away from the colombo galle main road. If you comming from Colombo, turn left in front of Aluthgama police station. If you are from galle turn right.

Good place to relish Srilankan cuisine. The place is so small that you will miss noticing it. The place is also called lotus leaf restaurant. Self service makes it the place of choice to choose your Srilankan dish. Don't miss the dal and rice combination....More
