Not impressed with this place at all. The place looked like it had potential but did not live up to it. The plates, tea cups and cutlery we got were all dirty and greasy with finger marks on them. The food was also greasy and some actually inedible. Definately dont order meat as it is tough and fish was very fishy. Think this was one of the worst meals we had during 2 weeks in Sri lanka.

Having spent a couple of weeks travelling in SL really grew to love the local food...rice and curry etc...felt that this place was trying very hard to be a western restaraunt - would have loved to see more SL dishes on the menu as this is better than any western food! However, if this is what you're looking for, nice spot, nice interior and friendly staff

Customer service is awefull people forget to bring you your food and when it arrives it's like it's been sat there for days.
The staff never tell you the cheaper options for drinks, and always try to sell you expensive coffee that tastes like they have used the coffee more than you should. I asked twice for a new cup and it was worse than the last.
The cakes I ate were dry and pretty nasty.
The only good thing at this place is the free wifi and they seem to get annoyed when you buy food and drinks and ask for the password!
This was the only reason I went back and got the instant CHEAP Nescafe coffee that is 4 times cheaper than the other coffee that is made by a machine.

Food was good, but not exciting. Western, Asian, but no Indian food at this time. Price was good and service good. Downstairs was a bakery and cafe, upstairs was proper dining! When there twice.

We came here through à guide book, which promised a lot. THE place also looked really nice. But when it came to ordening food we were disappointed that both the entire indian section and all the pasta's were unavailable. The only option left was the less promising Chinese section. Also no alcohol, which is a shame in a supposedly nice restaurant (although this might be personal).
