Half the price of the bigger tourist restaurants and same quality for the Sri Lankan food. What you don't get is WiFi, padded chairs or away from the busy road. Kids devoured the chicken legs which were not too spicy, curry was pretty good. They do cater a bit for the tourist crowd and can do mild, handy as normal local food is super hot. If you are happy with hot then any busy local restaurant would be a match.
Close to the lake and just round the corner is a kids playground.
