The Green Room is a great restaurant! A two storey tree house in the Main Street of Arugam Bay. Generous servings, reasonably priced and really tasty food. The chefs special was a highlight!! Definitely worth a meal here!! 👌🏻

We walked there two times enjoying the wondeful food of the Green Room. They offer fresh fish everyday and fillet it in front of your eyes. The dishes we ate were delicious and fresh cooked. We definitely recommend this place.

Food here was very tasty. It had great flavor and better than at other restaurants. My husband had the crab curry and I had the grilled calamari. We shared a banana chocolate roti. It was all very good.

If you cant make eggs, don't serve breakfast. This was the omelette post attempting to eat it. Rotti was terrible, tea was ok.
