Our hotel manager was out for the night and we walked over to Oyster's for a bite without his local opinion. Instead we once again relied on the Lonely planet to guide us to terrible eats It is still quiet here in Sri Lanka due to the rain, but there were a few tables filled with European travelers. We thought this a good sign. I ordered curry vegetable for myself and a jumbo-prawn curry dish for my wife.
My curry was very bland and lacking anything resembling a real vegetable. The jumbo prawns came (a local Negombo specialty) and the plate contained 1 jumbo prawn and a dozen or so tiny 1 to 2 inch shrimp (most were not cleaned of legs or shell). I asked the waiter about the discrepancy and he said they ran out earlier. Good info to have before you order. Anyway with a large Lion Larger and an orange Fanta the bill came to over $22 US.
