We enjoy this cooking class very much - exceeded all expectations. The teacher knows the Sri Lankan cuisine very well and did his job smart and likable. The food is great.

Great little tour. 100rps per person for a short tour around the garden of the herbs and spices growing there. Some of these are for sale at the end of the tour, which I think is where they make their money from this tour, inside...More

All dishes cooked in the class are vegetarian :). I think they might all also be vegan as well. But definitely all veg.

Hi, my partner and I just walked up to the place and booked for the next night. You could try calling them on the phone but best is the minute you get to Ella is to go there and book the next available class.
