It's as cosy and genuine as it gets. The staff actually bother asking how you find the food. Because the chef and his help does mostly everything from scratch, factor some time in and relax as you wait for your food.

Top of hill, amazing view and the food is fantastic. Their price range is a bit more than average, but it is completely worth it. Juices are incredibly good and refreshing, and the rice and curry is a favourite. Thanks Akila, Hansanka and team!

Although the kitchen operates on Sri Lankan time, the wait is always worth getting the most amazing food. The staff is always helpful and friendly & the atmosphere very laid-back. I 100%recommend it!
