Food is lovely, especially the curry, and the location is beautiful overlooking the river. Restaurant is basic so don't go expecting 5 star but the... read more

I was contemplating a starter when my menu was snatched away with "Sri Lankan curry, ok?" My boyfriend hadn't even looked... More

We had a delicious lunch here after a hot walk along the beach and through the market. Lovely setting on the river, great curries and very reasonably priced. service was a bit slow, but it was also a busy Monday lunch time. Would definitely recommend!

Nice little oasis on the shore of Bentota river. Very relaxing atmosphere. If You are lucky You can see crocodiles swimming past You while dining. Unfortunately our seafood dishes were quite average.

This is a little oasis set in the hustle and bustle of Aluthgama town. Blink and you would miss it from the street, but set on the banks of the river, it really is a beautiful setting. We ate here twice and both times had Sri Lankan dishes. The food was beautiful with excellent sized portions. The restaurant also had... More

Cozy location and we were happy with our food. The straff were serviceminded and friendly. The only negative feedback relates to the band that was playing.
