This place contains a lot of brand item under same roof. Product quality is honestly very good but very pricey. You buy the same product from outside with low price but there might quality difference. It's totally a brand gift shop to all foreigners.

It's better to have Sri Lankan currency. You can't use Indian currency and definitely not advisable to use USD as you will get a really bad exchange rate.
