Came here as recommended by lonely planet and wasn't disappointed. Compared to most other vegetable curry and rice I've eaten this one was a tad more expensive and the quantities of curry much less (still definitely enough for a filling meal) however it didn't disappoint. The sour mango curry was absolutely incredible and the pumpkin and eggplant also high on...

The room for the price was extremely disappointing - Mamas seems to be trading on its past good reputation in Lonely Planet but has become complacent. The pricing should be around $20-30, not the $68 charged and this excluded breakfast. The mattress was hard and uncomfortable and the bathroom in need of a complete refit - see photos. On the...

The hotel was pretty okay and the rooms where small but clean. Next to the mainroad which is very quite., specially during night. We had the room in the Corner which was more expansive. This rooms had a balcony and was only 50meters from the lighthouse.

We read about this place on Lonely Planet. As we were keen for non-buffet style hotel meals we decided to go here. The restaurant/cooking school is down a little alleyway and there is a big sign inviting you in. Mama was sat outside with her grandson and proudly said 'I cooked all the curries'. Her daughter and son-in-law had us...

We had read the reviews of Mama's in the lonely planet so knew we were in for a treat. The location is tucked away which meant you had to be looking for it. We sat outside and enjoyed the best Sri Lankan curry of our trip. Recommend going for Mama's special curry. At approximately 600Rps, you really can't go wrong....

“Room number 1 is at the front of the guesthouse and can have street noise, but has great views and a balcony with shuttered windows. Room number 2 is at the back, so no street noise but also no views and no balcony. Both rooms will hear the mosque firing up at 4.45am!!”
