This was a great place to eat. We found it by looking at tripadvisor and so pleased that we did. It was very cosy and welcoming. The staff were very friendly and were also helpful about making suggestions as what to eat on the menu. I had a vegetarian dish that came with 5 different taster curries which I would really recommend. They were delicious. If you were going at a weekend then it might be an idea to book. We went on a Friday night and managed to get in but it was very popular. It was also reasonably priced for the food that we got too.

Nice and simple restaurant with specialities from Sri Lanka. Don't be afraid to ask the waiter how to best combine the different dishes.

This restaurant is just a stone's throw away from our hotel, The Levante Parliament. We discovered it as our feet led us to destinations unknown. When we got there, we were greeted by the friendly owners and were immediately seated inside, near a window, where we were able to comfortably people watch without being roasted by the sun.

As we'd never had Sri Lankan cuisine before, we put ourselves in the hands of our server, and asked her to bring us her best recommendation.

We were not disappointed.

What we got was some of the HOTTEST (meaning spicy) food we'd *ever* had...I'm taking sinus clearing hot...yet it was flavorful and delicious.

We enjoyed it so much, we returned the next day.

We asked for it to not be as spicy, and that was a mistake. The food just didnt seem the same. It was good, but not delicious. The first day was delicious.

Overall, great food, great value, great location.

We enjoyed the meal overall but were a bit disappointed with the starters on the set menu we chose. They were a 'not sure if it was fish' ball, a 'where is the tomato' soup, and two different pancakes? with a chutney. The main course was much better and made the meal a success.
