Good Food, for sure!

I have visited this place for a family dinner with many childre. All dishes were tasty and prepared to order (maybe this explains why it took a while to get food on the table): food is definitely Sri Lankan style, not westernized at all. It's a pity they are not licensed to serve alcohol. The... read more

While traveling from Colombo to Dambulla, it is really nice spot for break, its natural look and the décor mesmerize you. The have really nice food menu. I had tried their fresh juices along with wonderful breakfast.

There are only two reasons why you should stop here.....1) you are under some kind of treatment and you need to get some food (any food) to get your medicine 2) you suffer of diarrhea and you need to go to a restroom asap....

Found this restaurant when searching for a place to stop for breakfast on the main Kurunegala Road. Variety of tasty food was available at a reasonable price. The restaurant has been built by the staff using natural material and the garden is decorated with vegetable plants & fruit trees. It had a well maintained washrooms.

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.
