This restaurant is a classic case of not judging a book by its cover. You won’t find cloth napkins and table cloths and fine china, but you will find some very good food at very economical prices. We shared the butter chicken biryani and vegetable...More

It is a take out place with a couple of tables for eating in. I went in to order take out, the place was extremely hot, I am not sure how the staff is not getting sick. I got a headache just in 10min it...More

Try the beef biryani, it's amazing. Don't think about how the restaurant looks, food is excellent. Great food at a reasonable price.

Extensive menu of traditional Sri Lankan food. I had the kothu rotti - huge portion, but a tad dry and not as good as what I've had in Toronto, but good nevertheless. Wish I'd had the chance to check out more items on the menu.

Pretty good kothu roti, I got the beef but the mutton tasted better! The lady didn't want to take my tip but I was stunned so she took it anyway! Nice service. Sat down at the tiny tables with 4 friends on a Saturday night.

A cozy no-frills place providing authentic Sri Lankan cuisine. Must try the kothu roti and dosa. Tasty food at reasonable price.

The food here is amazing. I feel like most of the customers get typical dishes such as butter chicken, but I really suggest getting combo 3 which compromises of beef and chicken curry, as well as three vegetable curries of your choice. Everything is incredibly...More
