This is a real gem, great home made food cooked to order. They don't have a licence for alcohol but there are plenty of places in town to have a glass of wine, it is the best place to eat in town

Ate here while we stayed at the brothers' rooms Aurora Guesthouse. Excellent food for this 'cooler' part of Sri Lanka - would rate this the best food in the country, along with Lucky Fort in Galle :>. Ask for the garlic curry (rice n curry) for dinner & egg hoppers for breakfast.

Cute little restaurant on Ella main street, close to train station. Really tasty Sri Lankan rice and curry especially the garlic curry, chicken curry and eggplant. Definitely recommended

I don't want to set your expectations too high, but this was the best curry I ate during my 2 wk sri lanka trip. There is not much choice at this little restaurant; curry and maybe 7 other (eastern) dishes. I really like that, since it often means it's all fresh made. The cook and owner and waiter for the...

Really nice and cute restaurant! The service was very nice, and the food was absolutely amazing. Even though, unfortunately, I had no time to order a dessert, I had a delicious Sri Lankan rice & curry, which the cooks prepared freshly right after I ordered. I recommend this place to anyone looking for a cozy and authentic atmosphere.

Wow, this is the best curry I have ever had. Like a plate of steamed rice in a banana leaf. Nine bowls of curries and assorted bits to go with it, followed by a mango lassie. No alcohol served on the premises. Very nice location on the road to the North of the town. Cost of meal And drink R1100.... More

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).
