The menu seems expensive (via Sri Lankan standards) but the quality and quantity that you get from Ella Village is like no other restaurant Sri Lanka. The curry order comes with at least 5 dishes- all high quality ingredients and divine flavours. I'd definitely recommend. As well- the owner is delightfully friendly and is happy help with activities or recommendations... More

Pretty restaurant located close to the railway station. Excellent rice and curry. Freshly cooked and very tasty. The waiter was happy to refill our dishes if we wanted more (although we didn't as the portions were so generous).

Funny little restaurant, near the station of Ella. Owner and cook is super friendly! Really good rice and curry, typical sri lankan food.

My partner and I were lucky enough to be staying at Aurora so we got to have this delicious food every morning and once for dinner. We also tried Green Tea due to the high ratings on Trip Advisor but I thought Ella Views food was better and not dulled down to suit western tastes. We especially liked the use... More

We had a good rice and curry here during our visit to Ella. Food was slightly cold and less flavoursome than other restaurants but believe it must have been an off night based on other reviews! Friendly and lovely service and very generous portions. Worth a visit!

Ella Village has excellent food at a very reasonable price. The owner is extremely friendly, and offered second helpings of the curries we demolished. It was by far the best food we had in Ella. Unfortunately there is some roadwork nearby which is driving a lot of dust into the restaurant at the moment. Make sure you check it out... More

As we sat there, we watched a storm roll by. It was perfect. The food was freshly made, hot and delicious. The owner was friendly and the prices were pretty low. Best food we had in Sri Lanka by a far shot.

Delicious Sri Lankan food. One of the best meals in Sri Lanka. The curries were delicious. Great choice of different vegetarian and chicken options. Eggplant curry was the best!

Price is average but food is great and in great abundance, owner friendly. Have sent a notification to Tripadvisor because map is wrong... And we were not the only one.
