I loved this restaurant - we went back a second time. Disorganised, slow, a tad frustrating but with lovely wholesome food. Basically everything telling us westerners to slow down smell the roses and don't take ourselves too seriously. I was pleasantly surprised by the meals that were fresh, tasty, and a blast of subcontinent flavours. Prices are reasonable but most... More

The food here is really nice and there is a really good selection. The nicest part was the fact that you could see the food being prepared from scratch in the kitchen. The price was really good too. Weel worth a trip.

When we first popped in there were no tables available, largely because they were taken up by travellers on laptops. We decided to go back a bit later once they had all gone and had a lovely table at the top of the stairs over looking the village. The owner was very welcoming and were informative of the ingredients used... More

We ate here on our last evening in Sri Lanka and was delighted to see it was run by an English gent, who had retired to Sri Lanka. What a lovely way to spend retirement! The food was really nice and the ambience was good too.

This place has a big variety of tasty vegetarian dishes. The hosts are very nice and they have a big balcony where you can sit and enjoy the food. Nice view to the busy street! The nachos are definitely worth trying!

As we entered this restaurant, other patrons warned us that it had taken over an hour for their food to arrive.Anyway, we decided to give it a go, and literally after an hour of waiting (we were all really hungry and it was getting late), we got up and left as they hadn't even begun to prepare our food. So,... More

Had a lovely dinner here, we had a couple of lovely starters! Fried aubergine and the avocado dip was really great! I was a little disappointed with my main course: Dosa but the rest of my companions were happy with their food.
