We went for dinner and had two starters and shared a main (No 55 Sri Lakan curry selection) which was great. We got complementary salad and drink and had shisha after dinner. Great experience, the whole dinner (including shisha and beer) was around 35 USD.

Tuk tuk driver recommended this when we actually wanted to go to a different restaurant - it's a bit of a thing the drivers have going on with some of the restaurants. Anyway, agreed to go, looked at the fish that was neither fresh nor inviting. Left without eating anything.

We stayed in bentota but this nice restaurant helped us when we got fed up with eating the same old hotel Buffett food. The restaurant manager was brilliant with his suggestions and the food quality was very good and just hit you in the right places

10 nights in Bentota. We came here on our last night after being recommended by our tuk tuk driver. We asked him, as was our norm, to return in 2 hours. Well to be quite honest this was the worst food we had had in Sri Lanka and we ended up leaving after consuming probably a quarter of the food.... More

We went to this restaurant very hungry! We ordered 1 rice & curry & 1 prawn noodles. Best rice & curry anywhere, about 7 dishes in total so one is actually enough for 2 persons. Also takes 1 hour, so maybe worth booking table & order in advance. Great place overlooking bentota river. Enjoy!

Unfortunately we discovered this restaurant onoly after few days - and it immideately became our favorite! Absolutely the best view (to the river), nice and comfortable outdoors sitting, excellent service - this is what makes it different from other restaurants in Bentota. Food was great - we had several meals there, and all were good, especially we enjoyed the selection... More

The staff didn't clean our table from previous guests so we had some plates and cutlery near by. The waiter was definitely not friendly and when he heard that we'll only have juice he didn't say another word to us. Restaurant has got free wifi and that was the only good thing about our visit. And the view maybe. Terrible!
