Description
Every day at Saraii we celebrate local food, local farming and local culture by serving organic meals inspired by these connections. Each meal is prepared by local artisans who enjoy making the food more interesting and the meals more memorable. Don't expect a regular menu at Saraii but expect surprises. We cook authentic Sri Lankan meals from a seasonal menu which is decided by what's growing in our garden, what's selling at the local market and what we can find for you locally. Breakfast, lunch and dinner can be an abundant spread of local fruit, traditional Sri Lankan curries and salads, lots of bread and rice and even a Western spread for those who don't favour our spicy cuisine.

We have a Special Gala Dinner from 24th December to 3rd January which will be only 35$ per person!
