“RECOMMENDED: Delicious Taste of Sri Lanka”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2010

We went to the Angler with the start of our stay on the island and it was a real eye opener from a culinary point of view: Delicious curry with that little bit more of taste and service than expected - made the evening just perfect. Very clean restaurant as well which might be important for travellers who plan to stay for more than one day*:)*. Also reasonable prices for that quality of food.

“Friendly & home atomosphere with Budget!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2009

I have choosen this restaurent from Lonley planet for myself dinner out.
As I was travelling myself at Colombo, didnt want to far also alone at late night.

It was very budget & great home cooked food has been served. As I have tried Srilankan squid curry this time.
If you try local food, this is very good place to visit & money value & friendly service by the owner of this restaurant & small accomodation owned.
As he asked me if I can go for very spicy or not when I told him my choice of the food.
I went for midium spicy only & he knows I can not go for too much spicy food!!

It was a great value of dinner & fresh seafood curry Srilankan home dishes!
They have some other western food as well.
I like this kind of comfy small own restaurant!!

“Friendly atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2008

The Mount Lavinia hotel restaurant was charging UK prices, so we went outside the confines and immediately came across this little restaurant that serves fish as its speciality. Home cooking, and the husband acts as waiter and chats to the guests. Trade is slow at the moment and we were the only guests. But food was really nice, simply presented and freshly cooked. Nice atmosphere, reasonably priced. Well worth a look.
