We ate here on our first night in Sri Lanka. We arrived at about 9pm and were the last people there as it is currently the low season in Bentota. You enter the restaurant by walking across the railway track.
We did not eat the seafood but it looked lovely. The non-seafood menu is quite limited, but the steak and chicken that we chose were very nice.
We ate outside on the balcony and the highlight of the evening was a train passing by slowly just below us.

My family and I visited Malli's for dinner during our brief stay in Kandy few days back on a reccommendation from a friend. It's proximity to a host of hotels works to its advantage to attract customers. The look and feel of the restaurant is quaint and rustic with a very pleasant ambience offering indoor and outdoor seating (right next to a railway track). We chose to sit indoors and were greeted by very friendly and courteous staff. They have a limited menu, which just means they pay attention to detail and offer quality. We were shown the fresh catch of the day and selected medium prawns and parow fish to be grilled and a serving of what turned out to be delicious seafood soup. The fish, fresh and grilled to perfection was served with a side of vegetable rice. Highly reccommended to anyone who appreciates fresh seafood and tasty dining.

Had read a lot about Malli's Seafood Restaurant on Trip Advisor. I must say it was much better than what we had expected. Lovely ambience. The meal at Malli's was at par with what we used to eat at the Taj Vivanta.

We were staying at the Surf across the tracks and ate at Malli's every night.
My friend told me about the Tuna Steak, it didn't sound like all that but ended up being the tastiest seafood dish I have ever ate. Mmmmmm.... that butter. Jumbo prawns were HUGE, I thought they were going to jump out my plate and eat ME. Malli and the crew were very hospitable and made us feel right at home.

A big thank you to Malli, Batu and the family for the amazing food, great service and warm hospitality.
