Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This was the best Sri Lankan food we ever had and easily the best food on our holiday so far. Service, quality and price were all outstanding! We had the kotthu rotti and rice and chicken curry.

We took Grilled sea food plater, one sentence to describe this place: “Best food we had on Sri Lanka so far 😁” Highly recommended! PS frozen glass for a beer is a big plus 😇

It was really really good! The owner was one of the friendliest people we met in this country. He even offered to plan a fishing trip and offered us a free dessert.
