“Overpriced and asked times when we were leaving!”

Devi Tourist Home Dining Room
Ranked #24 of 30 Restaurants in Polonnaruwa
Restaurant details
Reviewed May 27, 2011

We stayed 1 night here and really had no problem leaving.

We were greeted with a smile when we walked into the place but then the tirade of questions began.

Would you like dinner? How about some dinner? You not having dinner? Would you like to take our taxi round Siguria and dambulla for 8000 RUPEES! When are you leaving, when are you leaving, when are you leaving!!!!!!

The setting was nice enough in a quiet street about 1km from the main town and they hire nice bikes for 300 rupees each but the price for the room was way too much, 1500 rupees with a non flushing toilet. The straw that broke the camels back though was being asked to pack our bags and move out before we went to explore the ruins in the morning. We just ignored them and asked when check out was and how much a tuk-tuk to the bus station would be. 400 rupees to which we walked out the door and got a bus for 10 each.

e, find somewhere else!

The guest house (and it is a guest house primarily, NOT a restaurant), was fine but not great. The toilet door broke, the cistern didnt have a lid and had frogs living in it, and the fried rice dinner was nothing special. We took the owners up on a lift to Kandy as they were going there anyway, but felt they over priced the offer somewhat which was disappointing.

We stayed here in March 2009 and we were delighted! The owners both speak excellent English and are friendly and helpful, the vegtable curry was the best we have had in Sri Lanka so far and the rooms were clean and excellent value - I would throughly recommend a visit.
