As a chef, I rarely write bad reviews. Sadly, this is one of those occasions! Fabulous looking place on the main road, lovely spacious interior. That is where the good news ends... Lime sodas. Why would you blend soda water? If I wanted flat water...More

There was nothing special about the Sri Lankan special omelette, in fact it was bland and had nothing but a few pieces of grated carrots in the middle. The lime soda was pathetic, dishwater would have taste better. The chicken biryani was nothing more than...More

Prawns curry was very nice here. You can tell the ingredients are fresh here unlike many other places in uppuvelli. The service was fine too.

2100盧比的螃蟹裡面是空的,根本沒什麼肉,不知道是冷凍多久了,肉還爛爛的...很噁心,根店家說這個不好,店家根本不理,睜眼說瞎話,還貴的要命,之前的好評不知道是那來的... It’s really bad place, the crab is not fresh at all, and is expensive, they are not honest, don’t go there.
