Have eaten here several times since we have been coming to Sri Lanka in 2002. Food is always of high quality and service is always good. It appears they have recently refurbished the restaurant and this only adds to its appeal. Would recommend.

Going by the food in the photos, this looks like a ordinary Rice and Curry shop. Is it a misleading name or does it have any steaks or chops to justify its name ?
