“Pleasant atmophere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

This Sri Lankan restaurant is nice but the food is nothing special. The staff however are polite and eager to serve. I wish I could say more, but that really is it.

“Let down by the food!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

The waiters were lovely and we were seen to quickly but the availability of certain dishes on their menu wasn't available. I had finally settled on a dosai which lacked flavour and was a very small portion. We had to wait quite a while for the food to arrive as well. I was annoyed by the lack of space in-between the chairs and the other tables - It was all very restrictive, bearing in mind I am not on the larger side or anything!
