We were on a group of 21 visited in April 2017 for buffet lunch. The location marked in google maps is wrong. There were about 7 dishes with soup and bread. Meal was mainly Sri Lankan with average variety. But it was not warm. The place is situated above few shops (hand craft, jewelry etc) There is a good variety... More

A 'tour-operator' restaurant; very ordinary food. Certainly not the place to eat when you are in Galle. The silver lining was the wood carving store which is also sort of part of the restaurant. The shop had wood carvings in vibrant colours.

We were on a group tour and the operator had booked our lunch here. The food was Indian and Lankan. All the dishes were lukewarm and can not really call delicious. Pakodas were very oily. The place is above a shop and you have to go through the merchandise area. Prices are steep and place smells awful.

We were on a group tour of Sri Lanka and our tour operator took us to this restaurant for a late lunch. The food on the buffet counter was cold and all the dishes were of mediocre quality. The toilets were also bad. It was the worst experience during our trip

A bit of a tourist pit stop so prices expensive, but the food is reasonable enough. Just don't buy any of the crafts, very expensive and cheaper elsewhere. Food ordered from the menu better than the buffet.

We stopped here for lunch with friends who are Galle residents. The food from the buffet was delicious and plentiful. The staff were welcoming and very helpful. Our drinks came quickly and the service was excellent. The crafts downstairs were well made and we were able to watch two wood-carvers in action. I would recommend this restaurant for a good...

We found ourselves in Gall on 4th February this year, which was the Sri Lankan National day holiday, with many businesses shut. We were taken to this restaurant by our driver, and found a number of mini buses and coaches parked outside. The restaurant is on the first floor above a showroom selling the ubiquitous tourist tat. On entering, we... More
