We came here on a recommendation and were really disappointed. Ordered kottu roti and it came out cold, it tasted old and it had no flavour at all. They must have known this so they plonked down a bottle of tomato sauce on the table to go with it! Worst kottu we had in Sri Lanka. They also have time... More

Really good authentic food. Excellent value. The restaurant is busy, but there's a good buzz about it and the service is excellent.

The service was very slow. We had to ask a few times for some things before they were brought. Had a big party so slightly understandable. Food is very cheap, so for a quick inexpensive meal this place is right. The chicken curry is good, served with a chicken drumstick, rice, lentils, and some other Sri Lankan vegetables.

Great food but very crowded. They have an upper floor which is less crowded and much comfy but for a higher rate. Restaurant is clean and good service.

It is very pleasant sitting in this restaurant, not to posh, but very nice. The food was good, the fruit juices were excellent and at a very reasonable price for the place, as well as the fruit salad. notice that when you order a curry - you get one dish (indian style, and not srilankan style)

If the locals go there, it must be at least relatively good. We were there at 4 pm and the place was packed with locals having a meal with their families. The menu was extensive and quality of food was good. However, the chef was quite heavy handed with the salt. Quite a good experience!
