“The best stop over”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

Sarukatha could be the best stopover for people who are traveling through Kurunegala Dambulla Road towards North, East, etc..of Sri Lanka. They have great snacks and meals which i would say is quite reasonable. However if you are a regular you will notice a difference in food quantity. The soups are over priced (LKR500 could be worth for about LKR300) but in general everything that they offer is very tasty. Great restroom facilities. And the staff is very nice and friendly.

“First restaurant we visited. Nice little place you won't regret going to.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

We stopped here on the advice of our driver. The food was tasty and the open air restaurant refreshing and fun. It was buffet style with a small selection of tasty sri lankan foods. Nothing that will blow your socks off, but a great place to stop if you have the chance. Decent service and friendly staff.

“Divine food at a very reasonable price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

Having eaten a lot of Sri Lankan food during our trip we were craving something different so tried Saruketha. Both the meals we ordered were excellent! Authentic flavor, tender meat, good-sized servings and absolutely delicious. Highly recommended! and the sea food that we had was mmmmmvawwwe............ lobsters were so fresh and tasted grate and the presentation was like in a master chef competition .... it looked so professional. surrounding was so unique and was done with a grate taste loved this place and guaranteed you will not be disappointed
