last night we had a pretty good meal at a different restaurant with painfully slow service, an absolutely gorgeous and romantic ambience on a quiet and perfect beach east of Tangalle. tonight we went to this trip advisor highly recommended place and were dismayed that no one was eating there when we arrived at 7:15pm, and it was a rather humble establishment. weren't even sure we were at the right place. but once we settled in and realized it really was the place where the ginger garlic sauce livens up all of the fresh sea food, we settled in to the lovely view over the bay, and the friendly and thoughtful service. the arrival of the food was preceded by the aroma of ginger and garlic sautéing in the kitchen - and the white fish and prawn dinners did not disappoint. fabulous! with a very tasty bowl of sauce to enhance the mound of fluffy rice laced with veggies, as well as a crunchy cabbage pineapple tomato cucumber salad. really very special - and we learned for the gazillionth time that you can't always trust your first impression. highly recommended.
