We had a meal here and can safely say it was the worst in all of Sri Lanka. Firstly they only had Anchor beer (which tastes a bit like soap - avoid it and stick with Lion or Three Coins) Secondly the service was agonisingly slow (this is often the case in Sri Lanka, but we were were the only...

One of our party of 4 noticed this restaurant and suggested that we stop here rather than heading 20 km back toward Harabana in the interests of getting a quick meal. Big mistake--nothing is quick. Orders which they could not fill were accepted; staff took their time about informing us that they didn't have the ingredients. I ordered Chicken Fried... More

The ceilings are low so there is a strong sense of the room being a confined and closed space. The bathroom was dark and dingy and the toilet cover was partially broken. There was a dank, damp...

Good food, both Eastern and Western style dishes. We were 2 of 3 guests in the hotel and they still went ahead and made exactly what we ordered. The breakfast was sparce, but the supper was good, made with clearly fresh delicious veggies and fruit juice. Yum.
