After reading the reviews, we went to book and first we weren’t sure about the place. When we went back on the evening it was a nice first floor dining room and the curry is the best we have ever eaten. Remarkable the spinach tempura and mango chutney. Nice service and good price. Beer available.

We had the set menu with chicken curry and it was incredible! Every dish was delicious, very fresh and a fantastic way to try many Sri Lankan flavours. The waiter was so friendly and kind, and the owner was also very friendly and helpful. This has been our favourite place for dinner so far! We were blown away at how cheap it all was, for so much food, we even went back for a second night!
You must visit, it is great value and an amazing experience.
Thank you to hotel Shalini’s!

Lovely traditional Sri Lankan homestead offering home cooked set menus on their open-air first floor restaurant. Just make sure you have the mosquito repellent handy.
We opted for one vegetarian set menu and one with fish and were inundated with mango chutney, curries and rice, including two varieties of aubergine, water spinach, dhal, cabbage and cucumber. Everything was extremely tasty. With two bottles of water, we got change out of LKR2500. Ridiculously good value, especially given the setting and the quality of food. Just a pity that we couldn’t taste their famed jackfruit curry, but the fruit isn’t in season in August. Definitely worth a visit.
