“One of our faves!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

This is one of our favourite local restaurants. The location is somewhat boring, but the food and service are excellent. We always have the string hoppers, chicken curry, polsambal and either the dhal, potato curry or the cashew curry. Then the jaggary sundae...mmmmmmm!

“Nice Authentic Sri Lanka Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012

The best place to have hoppers i.e. string or egg hoppers. Even Sri Lankan chicken curry and rice is nice. Ambience is good. Location is great. Parking may be a hassle.

“They have the best Pittu in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2012

I normally have the hoppers, since they are very good. However, I decided to have the Pittu instead and made the best choice. The food was tasty and fabu. The atmosphere is always great and the staff friendly and efficient.
