“Lovely staff”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

Food very good and the staff here were really respectful and welcoming. Having had a few challenging experiences with Sri Lankan men this was a safe haven.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

We quite liked this place: Decent curries and prices, and a relaxing break from the hectic world outside. The service was prompt, and there's a bakery right underneath.

“I have had worse experiences”
Reviewed March 4, 2013 via mobile

I was expecting a cheesy theme restaurant with OK food, and they definitely lived up to the cheesyness while the food was a bit disappointing. We got a table on the balcony which lifted the experience a lot. OK if you are hungry and in the neighborhood, but not worth a detour.

“Truly Awful”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Our meals at the History Restaurant were truly awful. The place must have worked hard to find cooks who could mangle food so badly. The grilled fish was as dry as cardboard. So was the chicken sate. The french fries were mummified. How an attractive place like this could serve such terrible food is truly a mystery.
