We ate here twice. The food was good as to be expected but there was nothing special to it. Location by the river is nice if you get a table outside. Nothing to complain but nothing to lift the place to high praises either.

RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We ate here for a couple of lunches and dinners, both were excellent. Very good choice and excellent value for money. the location is in the heart of Aluthgama, by the market but tucked away by the tranquillity of the river. You will always get a table for lunch and dinner but if you want to be right by the... More

Me and my partner ate there yesterday, we tried the traditional rice and curry and it was delicious! Friendly staff! Nice to sit outdoors out of the lagoon. No mosquitoes thanks too (mosquito coil) You go first through a small cafe before entering the dinning.

While the service was a little hit and miss we enjoyed our meal here. Situated on the river. Reserve a table in advance and arrive shortly before sundown. Alcohol is served here which is a bonus. Can get busy. The food is reasonable. You can just come to drink if you want.

We dined here last night & it was so good we're going again this evening. Everything was superb - the food both quality & quantity - certainly value for money. The ambiance was lovely & the waiting staff very attentive. Couldn't fault the evening at all. Looking forward to another tasty dinner!

We had high hopes for this restaurant as it is rated No 1 on Trip advisor. Location was nice but food and service was average and we felt like the waiter was continually up-selling. We had the sea food platter but it was covered in so much garlic you couldn't taste the seafood. The ultimate disappointment was that when paying... More

Found this little nugget whilst on a shopping expedition with wife.After dutifully following her around the shops I was getting a bit desperate for a toilet break so remembering the coffee sign outside I suggested we go in here, was well impressed as we went through the coffee shop and onto the outside terrace which sat on the banks of...

Nice place! Calm place on the river bank - good service! The shark was very tasty !!! I was so happy to find not spicy food - creamy chicken soup and "Halleluja!" - ICE coffee)))) but if you like spicy food you also can find it here - my husband ate very spicy tuna
