I have been to Sri Lanka and the food was reasonably authentic and a good price. However they committed a sin I can't forgive. I had mixture of vegetable dishes served on a metal tray with compartments. There was more that one dish in some compartments resulting in the dishes to mingle. Sorry but I can't stand this.

Pleasantly surprised! The food was really good. No frills about the place but good enough. Value for money I'd say. Watch out for the Indian large beer, it's 8.8 on the Richter scale!! Overall, great little place.

We ate here, as we found it recommended on TripAdvisor. It was marked $$, two dollar signs, meaning fairly inexpensive. The place filled up pretty fast. I found the service friendly but poor. The food was good and simple, very basic, all served in a very basic manner. Location close to port. Not so fashionable area. My friend was served... More

Always stop here on way from UK to Greece - twice a year. Excellent food, choice and prices. Convenient to hotels and port. Owner very friendly - always remembers me.

A little resturant with a friendly owner, we enjoyed flavors of Sry Lanka. Maybe just a little more abundant the courses, but the price was good. We'll be back again very soon!

It was fine, nothing special, but alright for lunch. The price was a bit expensive for what you get.

Unassuming but comfortable restaurant with a welcoming atmosphere and a nice vibe. The food was good and both the owner/man in charge and the waitress were friendly folk. I had a vegetarian curry plate, with chick peas and veggies and it was lush. Nice beer too. Very affordable prices made it good value for money. It was pleasantly busy on... More

Close by both train station and ferry terminal, we were thrilled to find out a Sri Lankan restaurant in Ancona. Being Sri Lankans, we enjoyed delicious food served and had a delightful chat with the owner himself. The setting is very relaxing and the old golden Sri Lankan songs played in the background made us feel like home. Anyone from... More

My partner and I loved the food here, we just wished we had more time in Ancona to induldge in more of it! We ordered the garlic rice, curry chicken and spicy lamb to share along with a paratha. We initially thought the servings were small but once we devoured it all we were full and very satisfied! The owner... More

Perfect place to have a meal before catching a ferry. Very near the port and quite near the train station. The staff were extremely friendly and attentive, all facilities were very clean with a soft scent of burning spices/incense as you enter the restaurant. The food was delicious and at a very good price. I accidentally ordered the wrong thing,... More
