Average curry for Asia. I ordered potato curry. I've had far nicer in other parts of Asia but prob best in Hikkaduwa as most are watery & tastless. The older guy working there was very unhelpful but younger guy was friendly.

We had the pleasure of staying at Neelas and eating there for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The breakfast was so delicious - especially the daal. Fresh prawns for lunch with ginger lime and garlic were superb. And we also enjoyed the fresh fish for dinner....More
