“Nice Takeaway Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014

Food was authentic. Priced reasonably and taste / quality was very good. Owners were helpful in explaining different options and delivering them on time. This is takeout place and only limited seating available to wait. We will definitely come back when we visit Surrey again.

“Excellent !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2013

Worth to wait till opens and taste the Sri Lankan authentic spices. Delicious food. More of a take out place. We had just fried pattie , my little one loved to eat them all.
Will return next time when we pass Surrey.

“Tasty Food of Sri Lanka”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2013

We had never experienced food from Sri Lanka and decided to give it a try. The restaurant is family owned and seemed quite authentic. Our server was very helpful in explaining the menu options. We had the Sri Lankan Curry Plate that came with three vegetable curries (dahl, cucumber and eggplant), a meat curry and rice. The food was freshly made and quite tasty.
The restaurant itself was plain and clean except for some graffiti on one wall. Actually it looked like a small child got hold of a marker and scribbled on the wall. Hopefully they'll repaint it. And the restaurant location is not very inviting. It sits in a small strip mall in an industrial area. If you are not put off by the location you will have an authentic Sri Lankan dining experience. They also offer take-out.

“Best Sri-Lankan Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2013

The food is Authentic. Great Taste. The best is that it is not too oily like many other restaurants.
If you want to try great Sri-Lankan food-You found it! Saturdays are a treat where the menu changes every week and @ only $10 per meal.

Will go back!
