A nice quiet place to sample local food. An extensive buffet spread for only 900 rupees. You will need a driver to get to the place though.

A family restaurant that you can feel at home! The local food is great and the family is so sweet! Far from the busy cities and in a very quiet place. Amazing buffet! If I come back to a Sri Lanka I'll be back here!

Very nice restaurant that serves loads of different local specialities (Buffet) so that you can try everything. Really lovely atmosphere with a nice view over the rice fields next to the restaurant. A little bit off the main road and therefore hard to find.
