“Loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

Biggest prawns I've ever seen and a fantastic Sri Lankan welcome.
If you like spice, ask him to go 'Sri Lankan' as the tend to tone it down!

Beer and wine cheap too :)

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

This was our second visit to Green Bamboo after already visiting other restaurants on the street. My husband had the king prawns which are huge and delicious! You wont be disappointed! I dont eat fish but the rice and tomato salad were equally fantastic! We will be back before we leave - for the lobster!!!! Enjoy!

“OK for a beer”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

The Green Bamboo was an ideal watering hole to have a refreshing cold Lion Beer whilst watching the hustle and bustle of the locals. It is located in the heart of the village not far from the railway tracks and the main road to Kalatura and near several local shops. The staff were extremely friendly and there were several TUK TUKS outside to take you back to your hotel. We had the seafood platter one evening as a family of six and it was OK but we had received better whilst staying in Sri Lanka. The Gem shop next door is one of the oldest in the village and the owner was very welcoming and funny - if you do buy make sure you haggle.

“Call those King Prawns??”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

They were more like small lobsters.Friendly family run restaurant providing wide range of tasty food. Mention cricket to the chef/owner and you are in for a good night.We had the king prawns washed down with a bottle of local beer and they have never tasted better!
