Decided to get out of the comfort of our luxurious hotel room to have dinner and we were pleased with our choice. Good Chinese food in Sri Lanka.... comfort food toward the end of our trip 🤗

Food was tasty, a little overpriced for Srilanka standards. I had the Kung Pao chicken, tasty but didn’t have the heat and bite that it should have. It had a lot of diced potatoes in it which I’ve never had in Kung Pao before. It...More

Thanks for the feedback! Kung Pao chicken is a dish that changes from region to region and this was our own version of it. The potatoes/carrots are actually quite common but our one is a little less spicy to change from Sri Lankan food.

It all started when Kiko, from China, met Jehan while visiting Mirissa. Kiko fell in love with Mirissa but there was something missing in this beautiful paradise: homemade Chinese food. Little Red House was then born. Chinese food as it should be. Fresh and authentic. Fresh seafood, homemade dumplings, noodles soup, Beef dishes … all served in a cute and colorful setting.
