Nice Place

Small but beautifully decorated with awesome food. Very friendly place. Only drawback is that they do not have any alcohol.

Very good slightly OTT art deco ambience. Courteous attentive service. We had lunch and a dinner here. Trad. Sri Lankan rice and curry menu available at lunch, but regrettably not at dinner although the menu was very good, and we all enjoyed what we'd ordered.

When you walk by any cafe the staff will give you the patter, trying to tempt you in... This guy seemed genuine, so I returned at dinner time. Looks expensive, but was reasonable! Fast service and I ate a lovely Thai curry. No wifi though

Excellent food! Gutted they didn't offer much Sri Lankan food on the menu! Had a Thai yellow curry... Best curry I've ever had!

Typing the review as the cruel bitterness starts to disappear out of my mouth after having that espresso from hell. No fragrance. No crema. No taste even? Just bitter water. That aside, the food and service was fantastic. Extremely well presented and very very tasty. 5 points for the food. Taking a whole point off for the coffee.

So you look at the menu and decide to order the following: classic burger, tomato, lettuce and onion. When it arrives, it is a chicken burger, with cheese and a slice of ham?? When telling the waiter that's not what we ordered, he got huffy and said this is what you ordered as this is a classic burger!! I dont... More

Mount Lavinia doesn't have many good restaurants. This one is the exception and well worth a visit for their great soups, salads and main courses and deserts. The staff is helpful and willing to custom tailor your meal to meet your desires.

We tried the soup platter and the lamb. You get three types of soup, and they're all equally tasty. The lamb was nicely cooked. No complaints. Impeccable service. There's also a little paved area outside where you can have a seat and smoke without disturbing others or being disturbed yourself. Lovely restaurant, would definitely go there again.
