Having had our fill of the Tooth Temple we found this top restaurant for lunch. Attentive and knowledgeable staff. Delicious food and drink. Easily persuaded into ice cream sundaes all round fro pudding. Credit cards accepted.

The restaurant is a clean well decorated place with a good menu and really attentive waiting staff. It's trendy and boarderline European in it's approach.

There is no alcohol here in case you're looking for a beer but they have loads of juices and the food is great. You cab have traditional curry or something more Western like burgers and wraps too.

read about this place on trip advisor so made the visit and it did not let us down. ordered the sri lankan curry and it was so tasty and the juices are all freshly made so to die for. a lot of smoothies came out and they looked just as good. all in all the food was great and the price was good value for money. well worth a visit.

We had Sabeetha serve us today after visiting the temple. She was a gem, excellent english and she even wrote our names in her language.
Good food, juice drink was slightly warm but it was cool inside. Quiet and full of foreigners. Highly recommended.

I give them 5 stars for the staff. They are service-minded For the food only 2 stars. The burger is not a burger. Taste strange! The cafe is located in the heart of the city center !
