Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Owner thushil and his wife sriya own this place, They look friendly but check the bill if you leave!!! Food is expensiver ,then a buffet dinner at galle face hotel!!!! They don't have a license for selling alcohol, because they near the church and schools,but he us willing to serve alcohol in dark glasses so no one can see,but you pay twice as much as normal restaurant!!Also they rent out their apartment,charge seperate for water and electricity bills,but if you ask the bill from what you have used,they refuse,and she gets angry.You end up paying the whole electricity bill for their building!!! The bill carnt be that much because we lived in Sri Lanka, and even with price raise carnt be that much. All in all a good place if you want to be cheated in a friendly way ☺️

We had real nice Curry & Rice prepared in a homemade way. We loved the flavourful and fresh ingredients. The couple running it is kind and we had a great time and food every time we went there! Look for Lifetime Travelmates review on Youtube! @lifetimetravelmates recommends: Rice & Curry (crab)

I had fish curry and rice, it was lovely. I was told it was cooked from fresh but I could tell, lovely flavours and a generous serving. The owner was chatting to me about the area and his family (I travel alone), while his wife made my food. A very pleasant evening all round. I am staying in this area for a couple of weeks so will definitely return.

We visit this truly amazing place for lunch and it was more than impressive. After a warm welcome we got a nice table on the terrace. The Location is such a beautiful Ambiente. The food was more than tasty and everything we got was fresh, nice arranged and delicious. The gentleman and the lady's did a outstanding job and take care of us in a special way, like we are royalty or something like this :) Thank u all for this wonderful start of our vacation. Best regards and stay safe and healthy! John

Incredible find! The food was delicious and fresh made from ingredients bought that same day. One item or curry on the menu actually includes many dishes and is really filling. The vegetarian curries changed every time we went and were always delicious. We could get refills of rice each time we ran out. Had a great time there. The hosts were very nice and friendly.

The Angler is very nice. The owner is very ambitious and do everything for your comfort. I had dinner there many times during my stay in Mount Lavinia. I mostly had fish and salad and they made it really good. The interior is very nice and it's nice to sit on the balcony watching the evening life on the street.

My wife and I had the privilege of eating in this little gem of a restaurant, that has been in the same family for 37 years. It is run by a husband and wife team - she cooks he looks after front of house and personally serves you too. They have a variety of Sri Lankan dishes that will blow your taste buds out of this world. She also makes other international dishes for those 'non - adventurous' folk. They are so friendly and sweet. As a fellow restaurateur - I would definitely recommend this little gem of a restaurant to any person who Loves good authentic food and hospitality.

Visited this restaurant during the 2nd week of November. I must say this is one of the best place we had authentic srilankan food. We ordered prawns and crab curry with rice.Food was cooked fresh ( takes 15 mnts) and the taste was awsome! Must visit is you are looking for quite homely place with srilankan food.
