We did the cooking class and it was really interesting (and involved about 10 dishes). Make sure you confirm your booking on the day though. Overall a good rice and curry

Good sri lankan food. Not spicy at all. I guess they are very used to tourists. Cosy place. The vegetable soup is great when its blended and added a little cream.

Incredible value for the best curries in Sri Lanka. We even convinced the chef to share his special Aubergine Curry recipe with us! Just wished we had stayed longer to do the cooking class there. Definitely worth a trip to sample some of Ella's best...More

Rawana holiday resort makes the best dinner in town, their rotti with beef, chicken or fish tastes like paradise, big one and great price. It's better to make odder before 5 pm and than just come at the evening

Nice time at the Rawana resort for dinner. Book ahead to ensure they can serve you and have a table- it was busy even though we are travelling in low season. The Sri Lankan curry is a good option- Great to try so many different...More
