Nice place for Breakfast

Found this place when we looking for a place for breakfast on our way to Dambulla. Nice place I must say. Food is bit pricy but tasty. Staff is friendly. Nicely maintained and clean place. There are outdoor tables as well with scenic view but I recommend you to have food inside the tents.

A group of 15 friends dropped in for lunch last Saturday.We had made a prior reservation too.We were cramped together and later an additional table was given.For the 15 guests the curries were served in small dishes which was not sufficient and we had to request for more.It was a real disappointment.

Had a nice dinner here, the prawn curry am told is amazing, but the amazing thing is the ambiance. The band was playing and I was told that the speaker of the Parliament was dining at the same place. It is open air surrounded by bamboos and great food. The lighting is dim and the spirits are high.

Filled with propaganda stuff like old village looking stuff & dining area but you can get western set menus. Buffet is local cuisine & it took them lot of time to serve us. parking & washrooms are good. Even the atmosphere is good. But the potion of the set menu is not enough. Never order the Steamed rice with vegetables... More

It's a small place but popular place with nice food.. However I thought it was too pricy considering the place.. Lunch was $10.. Only issue are the flies.. There were so many and it was quite hard to save the food from the flies while eating.. I must say the staff were very friendly and the service was commendable.

Waiters who doesn't know English (understandable at a local place, but some, even low level English would've been... More

Pleasant stop for lunch on way to Dambulla. Choice of buffet or a la carte. Both looked good. Seating outside a and inside. A mix of local and international food. Popular so would recommend getting there early as service slows as crowds build up.

Stopped for a late lunch on the way from Dambulla to Colombo. They had a lunch buffet and the option of a la carte. Lovely location, overlooking a paddy field, and the restaurant is set up like a little Sri Lankan village. A very relaxing place. Very friendly and attentive staff, and most importantly, clean bathrooms :) The lunch buffet... More
