We had lunch and dinner at Semondu. Loved all the dishes we had ordered. I would recommend the Sri Lankan chicken curry, prawn curry and the outstanding crab curry. Mr. Ayanna served us for both the emails. He was very good at attending to our table and very helpful when we asked him questions. My children loved the food here... More
