over-rated and over-priced

was one of the most expensive meals in Sri lanka and since it was night time we could see anything from our table. the building is old and needs renovation. I had the lobster and my wife had a "boneless" chicken that wasnt boneless. if you want to go i would recommend lunch and not dinner

The Chef was amazing. The Ginger Prawns were the best prawns I do believe I have had. The green salad is so tasty as is the Chop Suey Vegetable dish and the seafood Chop Suey. I would recommend this restaurant to all of my friends. Everyone is SOOOOO kind.

This was a disappointment. Food and shisha are both overpriced for the quality. I ordered a boneless chicken dish which came full of bones and was very oily. Shisha was charged by the hour at 1800rupees which was much more expensive than anywhere else we tried. Ambiance wasn't great either..so many better places to try in bentota!

One of the best restaurants we ate in during our stay in Bentota. We ate here on several occasions during our stay in Jan/Feb 2015 and were not disappointed on any visist. The food is excellent and the service attentive without being intrusive. Get a table with river views if possible. Excellent value for money/

The food here was excellent. The restaurant is rather lacking in ambience -the giant TV didn't help. There are several well-placed tables, prettily lit, overlooking the river, but you have to book them. I was, however, "bitten" to death by mosquitoes, and had to request -twice - a mosquito coil. 40 bad bites. I would definitely recommend the food and... More
