A family-run restaurant offering freshly prepared food at very fair prices - a joy to dine there. Be warned, it's popular so you may have to wait and may even miss out on the excellent Sri Lankan rice and curry dinner if you leave it late in the evening.

My wife and I had a delightful breakfast at this family run, cozy, friendly place on the main commercial strip in the Fort. We can't vouch for the lunch and dinner fare, but we liked the menu and we'd guess the food was freshly prepared and presented as well as our breakfast.

Very frindly family driven cafe,with high quality and fully homemade food. You'll properly have to wait 15 minutes, because food is made from ground. Simply the best in town. We visited for eastern as well as western breakfast, several times. Lunch and dinner is same highquality.

The eastern breakfast is very good, we highly recommend the string hoppers with seeni sambol. That's why we came back in the evening to try the seafood. The food was delicious, but sadly the served portion was to small. Just remember to bring enough time for breakfast ;)

My wife and had breakfast and dinner here yesterday and went back for breakfast again this morning. Sensational hoppers and string hoppers for breakfast along with roti. Accompanying dishes were all fabulous. Prawn and vegetable curry dinner dishes were also delightful. The dry chilli paste they make is a great accompaniment too. As someone else mentions these dishes aren't made... More

Great value breakfast, especially in the fort. Only 550 ruppees for tea/coffee, fruit platter/fruit juice, 2 eggs, 3 slices of toast/3 pancakes. They also bring the food in stages which is nice and not too overwhelming. Allows you to have a leisurely breakfast.

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!
