We had our lunch here on our way back from the Rock fortress. They offer a decent menue with some European dishes as well. They offer fresh fruit juices too and the prices are reasonable.

This is a good place to eat in Sigiriya and has very generous portions. The biriyani was very good as was the rice and curry. Service was pretty good.

We had lunch and dinner here with our 2 kids. The fried rice and fried noodles were very tasty. The Sri Lanka curry was ordinary. We ordered a beer which arrived at the end of the meal and was not cold. There was also a misunderstanding about our order. Good value fruit juice though!

Stopped here for lunch and was a great mix of food. My husband had a Sri Lankan feast and I had a yummy prawn and avocado salad. Pretty inexpensive and worth the trip when going to see Sigi rock.

It looks like a really nice place and the view is nice, but thats the only good thing I can say from our experience here. Took one hour to get the drinks (and they were wrong) and food was not good either. They were understaffed and service was very slow. Also this is more pricy than most places around with... More

We ate dinner here to try the Kottu Roti, one very one chicken - both very yummy, very much like a pad-thai. With a soft drink each it cost us LKR850. There were quite a good selection of meals some of which were quite western tourist friendly, but we wanted to try more local food. Sit upstairs as you are... More

The place is centrally loctated at the cluster of restaurants in Sigirya, opposite of the Nilmini lodge. It has a nice seating area upstairs but the food is just average, not bad, not particularly good. Basic tourist grub, at 900 LRK for a mixed spagetthi and diet Coke a tad expensive to my taste.
