A great place for a meal well situated and bustling for a Sunday evening. The food was good with something for everyone and well priced unfortunately only one beer selection which was not good. Great service. A good place for a meal. Enjoy.

Visited recently and was very disappointed with service and food was just OK. We asked 4 times for glasses so that we could drink water, 3 times on whereabouts of wine that we had ordered, 3 times for cutlery that was missing. Sea food main was OK, my prawn curry had plenty of prawns but little flavour. Never again

The menu is well curated, with plenty of variety and cuisines. About half of it is Lankan and the rest a mix of Continental and Asian fusion.

As there has been a beer shortage in Sri Lanka due to floods earlier in the year, I always ask… “do you have beer”, to which he replied yes. We ordered food and beers, another guy came to tell...

Ate here because Ministry of crab was full. We sat outside because there was zero ambiance inside. Outside had fans and was very pleasant. The food was tasty but the waiter really was off-putting. He spoke good English but couldn't crack a smile or even acknowledge us when we spoke to him. Not up to the usual warm Sri Lankan... More

I have visited this place twice and the food choice is limited. The food was not tasty at all. I found the staff to be staring at the tables with no smile and didn't like their service at all. When its managed by Sri Lankan Catering it is expected that staff to be very friendly, professional and helpful. But found... More
