Food poor quality and poor flavour. Meals not arrive at the same time, 10 minutes between. My daughter ordered a 'cheese burger' and got a bread bun with cheese as they told us she should have ordered a cheese and beef burger! Ensure when you try to get the waitresses attention she doesn't get distracted or she'll turn up with... More

We went to Petit twice and the food was well priced for the area and sensational Sri Lankan tastes. The devilled /chilli calamari and chicken great and the Sri Lankan curry one of the best. Great service in a nice friendly restaurant, we also heard others come in saying we came back because it is the best here.

We ate here on a recommendation and the food was really lovely, very tasty and excellent value for money. Clean plates at the end of the meal, highly recommend this place.

Very impressed with my fish in terms of presentation, taste and cost. The dish I purchased would have cost about £12-15 in a restaurant in England whereas this was a grill whole fish if high quality with rice and Salad for about £3:50. Worth a visiting by anyone staying in negombo. Staff nice and helpful 😋 Open air restaurant so... More

Very quiet lunch in the off season but everything was perfect! my partner and I just needed something small because of the heat so we shared the Sri Lankan prawn curry and had two delicious fresh juices with it, no problems with ordering only one meal to share and it was definitely enough for both of us. Great authentic food.... More

Our only meal in Negombo and by luck we hit on this place. Food was excellent although service was a little bit slow, but a nice relaxed environment and good value for money

Picture going into a restaurant where one has been many times before, as it was so good. That was me, and I know the owner Joseph for several years now. It's a delight to be welcomed as an old friend and to be able to have such properly-made, hygienic, and tasty food. Over the years I have never suffered 'holiday... More

I asked for rice and curry and was told they had ran out. The service was ok but the meal took a long time to arrive. The portions were very small, I had to order an extra portion of rice to fill me up. The food was nice tasting though.

A family run restaurant that has a charm all of its own. The food is very good, the service is charming and the decor is ok too. All at a very inexpensive price. None are world class, but the sum of the parts add to more than you expect hence the excellent rating.
