The fare here is standard Sri Lankan food elevated to superb, we did did not have a meal that was not fantastic, home cooked and really fresh. We went there 4 times. The rice and curry was different every time and always excellent.

Love this place, have been here again and again, the curry’s are amazing just the right portions too. Specials are definitely worth trying too. This is a simple, cheap and tasty option. The family are always very welcoming. Would def recommend you trying it out.

This is a nice but very small restaurant on a side street from the main road in Hikkaduwa. At peak vacation time, it get full already at 6.30-ish pm. We tried the prawns and some other dishes, and everything tasted great.

Had a wonderful dinner there last night. The vegetable curries are wonderful and I also had the pumpkin soup which was so tasty. Service was wonderful and environment is nice and quiet off the main road.

Setting away from road makes it quiet. Restaurant is very simple but service and food are good. Relatively simple menu, curries and rice/noodle dishes. Curries are a little watery.

I had the rice and curry with the addition of crab curry, and overall the curries were delicious and served piping hot. The location is the quaint front terrace of a traditional house, which was lovely and cooled with the assistance of ceiling fans. Overall...More

There are fans on the veranda and it was very comfortable there to eat as there was also a good sea breeze.
