We have just returned from a great meal at Mallis. The lobster was truly wonderful and the welcoming staff made the meal very memorable. Value for money was excellent and we would strongly recommend this restaurant to any lovers of seafood.

Just a few minutes walk from the Taj Bentota, across the railway tracks is the lovely Malli’s. The flavours at this restaurant were absolutely amazing. I had a salad to start (gotu kola also known as centella with avocado, feta with balsamic dressing and the traditional Sri Lankan fish curry(I opted for the Sri Lankan spicy level) with was served with rice some dal and mango chutney and pappadum. I was also given extra rice and mango chutney at no extra cost. Service was impeccable and the staff were very friendly and helpful. A must try when in Sri Lanka.

Sitting right at the end of the Bentota platform, where the steady stream of trains from Colombo to Galle pull up - you can sit there - overlooking train and track - and enjoying good food - with very good service. I had the prawn curry - very spicy - my own asking - and my wife had the chicken - delicious by all reports...

Tried it twice at the evening and both times the fish and my tuna steak were excellent. The ambiente direct next to the train was not disturbing. Price was okey and quality of the lunch was it worth.
