This is a restaurant decorated with heart and imagination. The guy who served us was very polite. He even find time to ask as where are we from, if this is the first time for us in Sri Lanka and for how long have we been here. We ordered rice and curry menu for two and we could not eat... More

very friendly service, excellent food prepared with love. Try their specialty Sri Lankan curry , but they got many other choices. Take a table upstairs , less noise from the street.

We visited the restaurant 2 years ago when it was a tiny courtyard place, returning we were impressed to see a huge change in their premises over 2 floors and thankfully the same exceptional food, friendly service and relaxed atmosphere.

We had the SriLankan banquette for two and it was exactly as we expected. Good quality and authentic tasting food. Reasonable prices and the restaurant is a lot newer and cleaner than nearby places.
