We were in Negombo for our last evening in Sri Lanka and came here for dinner. After all the culinary highlights of the past few weeks, this was a bit of a letdown. Our first two or three choices weren't available on the evening we were there, which was disappointing, but we were happy enough with the other options available. However, there was a very long wait for our food, even though the place was only half-full when we were placed our orders. When it did arrive, our food was underwhelming: both seafood dishes, the fish was very fresh but nothing else about the meals stood out, and the sides which came with the fish were quite stingy. With all the other guests clearly feeling the effects of the long waits also, whatever atmosphere there had been when we arrived quickly grew tense. If we were back in Negombo, we would look elsewhere.

This was our first meal in Sri Lanka after a long day travelling from the UK. It was pouring with rain so we just pooped into the first place we found. This is a very small family run restaurant which is a bit rustic but the food was great. I can definitely recommend the chicken and cashew nuts, it was cooked fresh and was delicious.

Delicious prawns and salad but grilled tuna wasn't that convincing. Juices are fresh. Prices are cheaper compared to other restaurants though and the service was good.
We didn't enjoy much because the tropical flies keep on playing on our food.

Went to this place because of the reviews, but god what a letdown, no alcohol, only soft drinks ordered a chicken and pineapple salad and got just chicken and pineapple! And no salad. Not many tables and the ones they had were dirty so very poor
