“not worth the money....”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

Went with great expectations and the food was expensive comapred to other dine out places of the same calliber incolombo. They have two desserts and what we ordered was five stare expensive. Service was late. Will not go there again.and they add a thumping service charge for everything.

“Mediocre”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

Location is great with a sea front. Inside area is quite small but can seat about 30 people. Rooftop lounge not ready yet.

Staff is very helpful and efficient at low crowd levels.

The food was better than expected. Fruit juices tasted quite fresh but felt the fusion/mocktails were rather overpriced.

Read the reviews before going and ordered Hummus starter which was just bread and paste but it was okay. For the main meal we had the traditional Biriyani which had a surprisingly nice flavor and the regular potion is more than enough for two people. But is was also oozing with oil.

All in all I think the place has a good concept but needs to develop the food to a better standard. Visited because of an offer so might go again in the distant future under similar circumstances.

Around 1000 LKR per head with drinks / starter / main.

“Nothing to die over”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Before going to this place anyway I have seen some comments about this place and most of those comment they've mentioned only the Shawarmas are good. So me and my friend also ordered beef shawarma. Taste was just ok there was nothing extra to die over. For dessert I had some Arabian milk pudding, it was tasty but the quantity wasn't enough for the money I paid. Apart from that I really liked the atmosphere of the place and their service was good. I think they have to reconsider about their chef and the prices of the food.
