We ate here three times in the five days we spent in Negombo and each time was superb. The staff were pleasant and attentive and the food was wonderful. Everything was freshly cooked and beautifully presented. We had a different dish each time we went and they were all equally good. The place us owned by an Englishman and he... More

Had a great dinner here on our last night in sri Lanka. We had two different vegetarian curries, and they were both very delicious, and so beautifully presented. service was great, very friendly and professional. The venue is nice, though when we were there, only the front part of the restaurant was in use. It's a huge place, with different... More

We were staying at the Jetwing beach and visited this restaurant on a number of nights. The staff are friendly and courteous. There was a live band and the tables are set around a fish pond with artwork on the walls. The food was great. I had stir fried prawns with a coconut risotto. The next visit a Sri Lankan... More

We visited this restaurant twice during our stay. The first was fantastic and we really thought the food was excellent and a good mix on the menu. Sadly our second visit wasn't as positive (food wise) but (and this is a BIG but) the way the staff, and particularly the owner dealt with some dislikes of the food was totally... More

Was recommended by a fellow traveller who had heard good things so went along to try it out. The owner came to all our tables and introduced himself. He also gave us a Sri Lanka guidebook which was nice. There was live entertainment which added to the atmosphere and the service was pretty good too. Food portions were huge but... More

Myself and my wife visited Lords one evening during our holiday. The service was poor the food disappointing, the entertainment was boring and the decor looked like an exercise from a local primary school. I would not advise anyone to make the same mistake.

We went for a dinner. The atmosphere was great and so the waiters. Although we had to wait for more than half an hour for our meals to come but what we had was worth the wait. Try the jumbo prawns that has coconut rice and the dessert that has passion fruit, mousse and white chocolate in it yummiest thing... More

I ended up eating twice at this place & the food is stunning. STUNNING! Like insanely good. But the venue itself is not good. Despite having a lot of space as part of the complex diners are stuck in a place to eat directly by the road (tuk tuk fumes anyone?) & the decor is right out of a 1980's... More
