“It's good only because it's in Sri Lanka”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2014

For a Sri Lankan restaurant it's good. If you've had the real thing in Thailand or if visit international cities like Singapore, NYC, London compared to those I'd give this a 2 star rating. However, for Sri Lanka it's a decent option.

“Good Place with Delicious Thai Cuisine”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2014

I have been to this restaurant a couple of times to enjoy Thai cuisine and Went there recently to celebrate my award which i received from the President. Unlike their Mango Tree restaurant (where parking is a real night mare), the place surrounding this restaurant has plenty of safe parking places. Food is really delicious and authentic, though quantity of some dishes is not that adequate. The other issue is that this place does not serve liquor (which I do take prior to dining out; as an appetizer), hence may not be a suitable place for anyone to celebrate or have an anniversary.

“great food, huge menu”

Great tasting food, great service and huge choice on the menu. Like it's sister restaurant "mango tree" has limited parking, but there is plenty of parking in front of the restaurant across the road.
