You have to go to Green Cabin!

It has been there forever looks the same and some of the waiters must have been there from the start.

Food is okay - the hoppers and baked crab are particularly good. But the reason that you need to go is the service.

It is an old fashioned place used mainly by locals so it lags way behind the good dinning experience to be found in the 5 star hotels. However, if you are not in a rush, for a relaxed informal meal, when you don't mind what order or when your courses come or what the waiters bring (always with a smile) you will have an unforgettable experience.

I love it!

You need to go there and dine in to experience the perfect delicacy coming from generations to generations. The environment is so peaceful and loving still has not changed. From the day we went there to celebrate my 20 year old cousin's birth(20 years back) to the day i walk there with my husband to celebrate the last dinner of our honeymoon. Its still warm and lovely with some very nice staff. It felt like coming home!

This has very good Sri Lankan food. Pastries are in very good quality. Different pie's are available. They are creamy and crispy. Pillaw rice are available on Saturdays. This is Excellent. Lump rice is good but too dry. Cream Buns and Eclairs are lovely and great.

We came in on a busy night and sat at the table for 45 minutes before one of the waiters took our order. In the meantime we tried to ask them for an ashtray, a menu, etc. and we where simply ignored or told 'yes yes' (and nothing happend). An hour and a half after coming in our drinks and food for one was served and twenty minutes later the second plate. Can not tell you if the food was good because i wasn't in the mood for food anymore. After paying, the waiter rushed at the table to see if we left a tip, we didn't. He refussed to respond to our goodby and just gave an angry look. Most horrible service i have ever experienced.
