Great place for an afternoon tea or iced tea and delicious rice&curry and salads. The service was good and the people are very friendly. The prices are also very reasonable regarding the good food and also compared to the other cafes in the fort. I can only recommend it.

Excellent service and great food. Food was priced reasonably compared to the excessive pricing elsewhere within Galle Fort

A very nice find! We had lunch at this small and charming restaurant. We ordered the fish curry and cuttlefish teriyaki and both dishes were delicious, fresh and generously portioned. Service was great and it was pleasant to sit with our cinnamon tea and while away the afternoon whilst it rained heavily outside!

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
