Just outside mount Lavinia hotel this is a good place to escape to when the compound gets too much! The food is excellent - the owner serves and his wife cooks. It's real Sri Lankan cooking and very tasty with good portions. We ate there twice in our 3 day stay! Highly recommended.

The food is really good!
This small restaurant is ran by a very nice couple, he serves and she does the cooking so real Sri Lankan curries, maybe a bit mild but we do like our curries Hot! You may wait a while as everything is also cooked for you but not a problem.. Everything served is fresh that day as he goes to market each morning to buy for the day.
Only a few moments from the Mt Lavina hotel and a fraction of the price.
We are always greeted like old friends having been going for a number of years .
No outside tables but big veranda doors always open so very airy.
Do give the Angler a try and you won't be disappointed !

Lovely people, great service, real Sri Lankan cuisine, superb value for money, just a few steps from Mount Lavinia Hotel. Local curry with vegetable side dishes was delicious.

Recommended to pop in here by a friend and so glad we did. Both of us had veg curry with rice, and one with prawns and one with chicken. Good value and incredibly welcoming couple who have been there for over 20 years. Staying at ML hotel is great but good to get out...even if it is only 3 mins away...
