Good restaurant on a local level. Huge portions but a tiny wine list. Wedding oriented, seafood is overpriced and not so fresh.

Good service and the local Sri Lankan food is very good. We had fish and shrimps curries with the traditional sides. The chapati (pancakes) were excellent! If you are in Bentota and bored of your hotel resturant, I recomend you visit this one.

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 ?
