Good value, friendly service, all cooked freshly to order. It is exactly what you would expect. Beer is available some times but not shown on the menu.

Ruwini restaurant serves delicious food with a smile. Ajith and his family make you feel very welcome and they even do tours of Sri Lanka. In the photo is the "ruwini special" which I definitely recommend. His tour is brilliant!
