We stumbled upon this small family run restaurant and were pleasantly surprised by the delicious, home cooked food that we enjoyed. They have both western & Sri Lankan food and we particularly enjoyed the seafood( crabs, lobster, king prawns & calamari). Because only the friendly owner, Joseph and his wife do the cooking, you might want to place your order... More

Petit is a very friendly, famliy-run place, simply but beautifully furnished with a reasonably extensive menu. The food was great, if a little blandly orientated towards western palates, but just ask for spicy if you like the local food... More

I came here due to the recommendation from the hotel where I was staying, the food is over priced and the dishes are small portioned. I had prawns as a main and only got 5 small of them with no taste at all.

The food, especially the "rice with fish curry: is delicious. It was not expensive, and we enjoyed our meals so much we invited others in our travel group... More
