The food here was tasty and nicely spicy. The staff were very helpful when we weren't sure what to choose. I recommend it.

Located on Nuwara Eliya's main street, it's a good eatery at absolutely decent prices. If you have already spent a few days in Sri Lanka ( as we had) you'll have no difficulty adjusting to the local style; it's SL at its usual. And you'll certainly smile at paying the check !

We were truly delighted when we saw the prices at the restaurant - some of the absolute lowest we have seen in Sri Lanka, and with no additional service charge.

We ate there twice so no complaints from us. The place is very clean and simple, the food was generous and flavoursome. It is central, easy and fast.

I wish the hotels would... More

After 2 weeks of rice & curry we try to find something else. In TripAdvisor we saw scores of this place. Totally valuable place - good hamburgers and nice waters.
