We stayed here for two nights, the room was extremely basic and quite rundown. We had tried to contact them about 5 times via email and never heard back, quite frustrating. When we arrived they couldn't find our booking, which was eventually sorted. The room was pretty average at best, the beds were horrible, pillows old and uncomfortable and wifi... More

Conveniently the only food they offered was the more expensive meals, the rest having been "finished" Many drinks were also advertised on their menu but again were "finished" and despite it being plastered all over the menu, Windows and restaurant front that they accept VISA this was conveniently broken aswel. The waiter then seemed to find my annoyance at this... More

We had the most wonderful stay at Sana's. The owner picked us up at the airport in the middle of the night and gave us a little tour of the waking up town. Than let us get inside the room at 6 am already (very comfortable if you arrive in the night after a long journey.) It was a very... More

The beer was cold and the service was very good, the food was not the best. Prices are reasonable enough.

Popped in here for a late breakfast. Only person in the restaurant. Ordered mixed fruit smoothie and chicken pancake. Smoothie was delicious and just as well I ordered this as would of still been hungry after my pancake. I thought I would at least get 2, but got 1. Expected more really. Service was friendly enough.

Right on the main street is a pleasant patio serving very good Sri Lankan food. We really enjoyed our rice and curry with several good accompaniments. Service was pleasant. Prices typical of the area. 10% service charge added to bill. P.S. Do yourself a favour and when in Sri Lanka order and eat Sri Lankan food. It is good. It's... More

We ate here many nights when we stayed at Hotel J in Negombo. This place was the most friendly in the whole area.. the staff went out of their way each time to make sure we had what we wanted to eat. The food was fresh and tasty and plentiful. They even accommodated a picky eater who has several dietary... More

Staff and owner could not have been more friendly and helpful, they really wanted us to enjoy the food and service. The savoury pancakes were excellent. We will eat here again.

I've been here before and went to see Sana. I only went for a beer. There were some Chinese having lunch at one table. I sat at the other. Table was covered with a dirty plastic sheet. Wet dog ends in an ashtray and a couple of (presumably used) toothpicks on the table. The beer was cold but the glass... More
