Recommended by the guesthouse where we stayed. As the title says, very tasteful, perfect service and good price. If you like curry's you should try this out!

we found ourselves here for most meals as their choice and variety was excellent and just seemed to offer the best atmosphere from all the restaurants on 'the strip' I ate the bean burger which was excellent and my partner had the beef burger which he also enjoyed very much, as we just fancied something non-spicy for a change. the...

Went here on our first night in Sri Lanka and weren't disappointed! We had a curry with prawns and the chicken cordonbleu with croquets, both tasted good and the portions were big. Combined with a cold beer/fruit shake makes this place recommendable!

Even though the prices were just above average the food ws really good. The seafood pizza was the best out of the dishes we ordered. Perfect joint for a casual hangout with family or friends. Randall

You know a good restaurant when its packed with locals. The curry and rice option we picked was much, much more than we expected and such good value for money. A fusion of flavours across several dishes with a range of hotness made this a memorable experience that I am very keen to repeat one day...
