Very friendly (but that's to be expected in Sri Lanka) Food war good, portions huge of course. Not very busy at 9pm on a Thursday evening. Music was very 80's, almost certainly livens up later in the evening. 75% locals which isn't a bad sign. They didn't seem to spend the money the tourists did though but were served as... More

It was not the first time I visited this place. For the first time I liked the place and the meal, however, this time was different.

Well the location is nice but i don't think they have done justice to the property. The decor and the surrounding could improve a great deal. The food I would rate 70% and can improve. No Value for money. Strongly recommend the next door Rodeo for good food and ambiance.

Have been to this place many times. It keeps getting better. Good food. Variety of drinks and cocktails to choose from. Good music and good crowd. If u want silence and peace of mind, u can go to the beach side and have a romantic time. All in all, love this place.

It has huge menu western to local, seafood to steak. Staff are a bit over friendly, may be we went there with a couple (gay) just met; anyway this restaurant is very popular with the locals, gay, lesbian, jiggalo..... all walks of people. To be fair their food is good with fair amount of portion and very reasonable price.
