We found this place quite late on a Sunday evening within the Galle fort area and stopped here as it was still open. Nice friendly and quick service not waiting long for our food at all. Big pile of rice and good selection with the curry although only one portion of the main curry when we had asked for two.... More

We ate here twice during our stay in Galle and both times we thought the food was delicious, freshly prepared, great value and homemade. We had to wait a long time for breakfast (the restaurant was quite full and it's only a couple running the place) - that said when it came it was worth the wait!

We ate here a couple of times. Breakfast, dinner, or just a fruit shake. All was tasty and fresh. Try the curd! Only the fish was a little dry but the accompanying French fries were crunchy and salty, perfect. Atmosphere is great!

Small cosy cafe wtih nice wooden furniture and frangipani painted on the walls. Delicious, hot (temperature!) rice and curry and friendly professional service. Good prices too.

This family owned restaurant on Peddar Street is my favorite affordable place to eat in Galle Fort. Yes they take a few minutes extra to get the food out to you but I think the flavors, not too much use of coconut milk, great prices and a menu that offers good choices for both SL and western food make the...

So good to find a curry in Sri Lanka that's not just coconut cream! We asked for extra spicey and got amazing green chillies in it. Very fast excellent value for money. Love not only the meat curry but also came with pumpkin eggplant beans and cabbage currys! Would def go back

读了几个帖子之后我们决定去这家店吃早餐,套餐品种还算丰富,有水果,面包和茶,算是常规套餐,价格不便宜,但是,任何东西都不能添加,即使是在红茶里加点奶都不行,但是看到别的帖子里写他们要不同的果汁老板都给做了,似乎有区别对待的嫌疑 After reading several reviews we decided to have breakfast here. The food is good and plenty with fruits, bread and drink. However, they don't provide a refill even we wanted some milk for tea. The owner always told us this is a portion and no more. But some other review says the owner gave them additional juice. I hope... More

We ate here one evening after reading some of the reviews on here. I have to say this casual looking cafe was a lovely surprise..we were served tea in perfect white China, and also enjoyed, chicken curry, prawn curry, radish, cabbage, beetroot, and two other veggie curries with rice and poppadoms! They were lovely, and not all heavy with coconut... More
