“Poor quality”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

I am a sri lankan and we drove about 45 miles to have dinner at this east bay restaurant.
The quality of the food has gone down a lot over the past few months.
The food is bland and does not taste good. Lamprais which in the past was good is now bland and tasteless.
The shrimp biryani tasted so bad that we ended up throwing it out.

“Perfect ending to a fabulous vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

It is the decadent Lamprais is what brought me to this sleepy East Bay town. We were visiting with friends in the city and they suggested we must try this. How could you not love anything wrapped in a banana leaf. Also at this Sri Lankan Restaurant we found Green Jack fruit salad with coconut, and also a Lotus Root salad. The texture to both the vegetables are rather interesting and very rich of fiber. Finally to the Lamprais and the Sprats Sambal, I wanted to savor every bite. The Lamprais had Ash Plantain curry, Caramelized onion, Eggplant Moju, boiled egg, cutlet and my choice of meat of fish. All the sides equally delicious. The service was excellent, they will take the time and explain the menu to you instead of skimming over it. What an amazing experience.

“Great food, amazing service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012

I have never had Sri Lankan food before I found this place by chance, but I totally fell in love with it.

For starters, the service of this place is great. The owner personally took time to explain the food to us.

The menu was elaborate with many exotic entrees. I am not sure if all of them are truly Sri Lankan but they all tasted so good. The bread and curry were great too, though most of the food here can be very spicy. Also the food is very different from Indian food, though there are some similarities in the spices they use.

Overall, the food was great and unique considering there are not too many Sri Lankan restaurants in USA.
