We visited this place with family. We ordered for prawns and Biryani, and we were actually disappointed by both the items. We were more disappointed by careless attitude of the servers. We got bill even before half way of our meal. First time in my life I have paid bill before finishing the meal. And yes, did I forget to... More

We visited Amal restaurant two days in a row it was so amazing. The most delicious lobster that my husband and I have ever had. Grilled to perfection ! Fresh vegi and pineapple salad and Sri Lankan rice to accompany. Cold beers and great drink of the day and the service is amazing and the price was so reasonable.

Amul Restaurant is very close to the beach and I suppose they get a lot of customers which explains their supreme complacence which unfortunately affects service and not in a good way. It is a super pricey joint all though it is not air - conditioned and the ambience is great for flies but nothing else. We were starving and... More

The restaurant is beautiful and is home of the freshest caught seafood. You are given an option of what seafood is available and also what comes with the seafood. We opted for the prawns which were Devine. The restaurant is in Bentota most Tuktuk drivers will know where it is of you are in Bentota it is a must. Service... More

This is a beautifully renovated restaurant hotel and garden. Staff friendly and situated off beach a walk from Benatota. The train whistles passed the end of the garden occasionally but has a safety guard there. Local lion beer is good and much cheaper than imported brands

Highly over rated. The service staff and the person at the billing counter are obnoxious. Not open to feedback. We experienced poor service, rubbery devilled chicken and despite our feedback they had the audacity to bill is LKR 900 for the chicken. Not only was the food quality poor but what was even more surprising was the poor quality of... More
