It looks very very casual. There wasn't any tourist only locals and all the tables were full. We ordered vegetarian curry.. for 4 people, I think it was 400-450rupee per person all the dishes were hot and spicy, really tasty. Must try ( best coconut samba with dried fish inside)

We ate upstairs as we had 2 hungry kids with us, who really just wanted eggs, which was on the upstairs menu.
The space is bland and stuffy. The waiter was attentive. The Sri Lankan Set was expensive compared to downstairs, but reasonably tasty (and still ok priced at 500r). Portion was small compared to other curry + rice we've had in Sri Lanka. The kids omlettes came with a small serve of fries. The fried rice was ok.

We enjoy eating the real thing wherever we go whilst avoiding too many other tourists. This place is packed with local families enjoying a meal together, it's clean, well organized with the manager/owner keeping his eye on all the staff and patrons to ensure everybody is happy. We tasted as much as we could: yummy Kottu, hoppers and rice & curry but also the delicious filled buns and fish cakes you get at the counter as you go in. Go in, blend in, and enjoy it all!

If like me you love a good curry and spicy food then this place is well worth a visit. We escaped our compound and the bland tourist food we've been subjected to for most of our holiday. BBH is a bit confusing as there's no menu. We just pointed to rice and curry. We got brought out a big plate of rice and various veg curry dishes, all delicious. There was chicken on offer too. We helped ourselves to a drink from the fridge. The staff were lovely and the bill was ridiculous. Proving we have been getting totally ripped off on this holiday. Expect to pay about 300 rupees for meal and drink. Best meal we've had.
