“#nombrag”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Great set meal - a few bowls of curry, rice and papadams. If you haven't got curry fatigue yet (and you will my friend, mark my words), you'll love this. Small homely family place. Sorry, tiny, homely family place, but lovely.

“Amazing curry!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

This small restaurant on wooden boards on the shore line serves an amazing authentic curry and rice and it really was one of the best meals we had during our time in Sri Lanka, and one of the cheapest!

They don't serve alcohol but you can get a beer from the shop on the road outside.Would definitely recommend it and be sure to have the pumpkin curry!

“Good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

The water has destroyed half of the restaurant, the deck no longer exists, but (more importantly)the food is amazing. Get there early or book a table since there are not many seats. The service is a bit slow but no one is on a hurry in Sri Lanka anyway...

“must have been nice earlier”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

As already stated by another reviewer, the place doesn't look like on the photo. The wooden terrace and half of the concrete terrace are gone, which gives you a kind of post war atmosphere. Rice and curry was good yet not the best in town. Another minus: no bear...
Sorry for the family, but I cannot give more.

“Superb, tasty food, great value.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Great location - right on the beach.
Fabulous home-style Sri Lankan curries cooked to order (that's why it takes a while) - especially the pumpkin curry, aubergine curry and the delicious lentil dhal. Go for the rice and vegetable curry meal – it is superb value for money!
If you’re in a hurry - don't come here: if you want the cleanest and safest place for kids - don't come here - if you want to chill out by the beach, eat great food and contemplate stunning scenery while quaffing a few cold beers then this is the place for you.
