We ate here on both of our nights in Negombo. Beautiful, freshly-cooked authentic food - great value for money. Rohan and his wife are so friendly and make you feel really welcome.

I read the reviews so seeked this place out as wanted some proper Sri Lankan food. A lot of places in Negombo serve mainly food you can get anywhere back home but this place was simple, tasty and friendly. Rohan was very chatty and friendly and he tried to make a time pleasurable. I tried the devilled fish curry which used fresh tuna steak was very yummy!

After 10 days traveling around Sri Lanka with my mother and being bitterly disappointed by the hotel food in most places, our driver took us to Rohan’s place just before we got to to our hotel Jetwing Sea (note for travellers this restaurant is 5 min walk from Jetwing Sea). We ordered prawn curry and rice and home made chips. The meal surprisingly to us came with lots of side accompaniments such as a bean dish, an amazing pineapple chutney and many other little dishes. It was sort of like a Sri Lankan tapas. The food was awesome. Freshly home cooked food. Very flavoursome and tasty. We were so happy to finally eat some authentic tasty Sri Lankan food that we had heard people rave so much about. Rohan was very friendly and told us his wife had cooked the food. Our driver informed us the food was indeed what real Sri Lankan food tastes like. The whole meal cost us 2450 Sri Lankan rupees, equivalent to 12 English pounds! Complete bargain. This is a lovely family run restaurant and I would highly recommend this place for a taste of authentic Sri Lankan cuisine. Keep up the good work Rohan!

Our first day in Sri Lanka and we had our first dinner at Rohan's Place, a small family owned restaurant. We were the only diners there as we had gone there quite early. Were served fresh fish curry and rice - very authentic food. It was a great start to our 2 week tour of Sri Lanka!

We went out for an early dinner and it didn't look open but a local assured us it was and we took a seat. The place lit up when Rohan arrived. He introduced us to Sri Lankan rice and curry, showed us how to eat it and looked after our son while we enjoyed the delicious food. Rohan even brought out his own son to say hello to ours and they were proud to have the same shoes. A really nice family-run place. Food great, service great, value amazing.
