This place has excellent staff, very friendly and helpfull. Food is good, some dishes are better than others but thats like it is everywhere. We have been here on a pool and lunch but mostly at dinnertime. We`ll be returning that`s for sure.

we've stayed for a few days at Asian Jewel (see details in the hotel review) and to make it easy at first night, we decided to test the restaurant rather than going to main town. It's poor to say that our decision was the best. After 12 days roundtrip, a burger was a logical choice and it was "just like... More

By far the best food we ate on the trip. So good that we traveled the 20km twice to go there. The Indian curries were some of the best I have experienced and worth a try. Prices of food and drink are very reasonable for the quality. Service was exceptional as was the ambience

By far the best meal we have had in Sri Lanka. The srilankan curry was astounding with 8 different dishes (1400 rupees each). My daughter's fish and chips had crisp, fluffy batter and chunky crisp homemade chips that were fluffy in the middle. The spaghetti bologanse was a welcome western treat for our youngest and was delicious. The best mojito... More

We stopped for lunch on the way to Thalpe from Colombo. It's located off the main road, which makes it quiet and peaceful. The decor is quaint and comfortable and the service was attentive but very slow. The food was very mixed. Fish and chips were under seasoned and not crispy, burgers were nice and the battered prawns were fairly... More

Many thanks for reviewing our restaurant, and sorry to hear it was`nt that good for you. I was there when you actually came so i got to meet you, i was concerned when you asked the waiter to use water in the batter instead of the small beer we use which is what makes our beer battered fish crispy, so...

We came here on our last evening in Hikkaduwa and we couldn't have made a better choice. First of all, we felt really welcomed, as the british owner took the time to look after us and sit with us for a little chat. The two waiters, who took care of us, were impressively friendly, attentive and polite. After the monsoon... More

Tanya serves the best traditional Sri Lankan curry ever (as good a mum's according to my friend) all presented on a banana leaf in coconut dishes so as easy on the eye as the taste buds. It is also eel worth pre-ordering the Sri Lankan hoppers and dal for breakfast - delicate and delicious. The deserts, Thai and European food... More

Miles out of the way but they arrange a tuk tuk for you and it is worth the journey, it's probably the best curry I have ever had! We didn't manage to try the Sri Lankan curry and rice (which needs to be ordered 2hrs in advance), but the house special curry was absolutely amazing: fragrant and tasty, really well... More
