“Nice for a Change”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

beautiful layout, friendly staff, food is really good but very expensive. ...

food portions are small, but the sea food platters are worth for the price. ... they have a variety of dishes to choose from and the drinks are good.

“Best Sea food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

The ambiance is very nice and food is very delicious.. They have a very good verity of Sea food. The staff is very friendly and service is excellent. Food is not that expensive when compared with 5 star restaurants in Colombo. don't order too much cos the portion sizes are good. Try the soup of the day where u get a ice tea for a very reasonable price..

“Mouth watering sea food - But expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

It looks like a fast food outlet. still kind of cozy and warm. attractive menu with pics. It is easier to pick what we want. and the staff is ready to help when selecting dishes.
I can say they have the best sea food in colombo. presentation and the size of the portion also good. you feel its worth for the price, but they charge a huge amount of government taxes which is totally unnecessary.
I wont recommend this place for a date night. But its a good place to hangout with friends.

“The fish is great!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

They serve deicious, succulent sea food with a difference. The Grilled fish is pretty good and is served in generous portions, accompnied by rice. The prices are slightly higher than of the standard eateries in Colombo, however the restaurant makes up for this with novel sea food experiences such as the flaming grilled platter etc. Serving staff is very friendly and you will recieve a hearty welcome upon entering this place.

Although it's desgined as a fast food restaurant the ambience is easy and relaxing. The servers could be a little too pushy with the entrees, drinks and desserts which are slightly higher in price. So if you're not in a mood for binging and are lookig for value for money, choose mindfully and you're sure to find satisfying seafood combinations that are easier on the pocket.

“Too complicated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

The ambience is quite basic and has a fast-food outlet feel about it and the servers are rather too pestering in terms of further sales. The food is very delicious and well presented but the very complicated way that the menu is set out and the overdone novelty of the dish titles and menu layout make the business of selection far more complicated than it need be.
