“Trendy decor but unremarkable food”
Reviewed 10 March 2013

I ate here once in mid-February, and found the food average and the prices high. While the quality of ingredients is good, the dishes are no more delicious than those from a Chinese takeaway joint in the West, but with smaller portions and similar prices.

This place has potential, but more generous servings of food (not rice or noodles) are necessary in order for it to merit a higher ranking.

“White meat chicken, fresh identifiable vegetables and great taste”
Reviewed 25 February 2013

The place was not as inviting, and looked like it would be hot; but not at all. The fans inside kept the air moving and was very comfortable. And the food was terrific. When traveling I often want vegetables that I can relate to, and there were plenty of them in my chicken stir fry WITH LOTS OF CASHEWS. 900 rupees, and excellent. Oh, and quick service, right here in Sri Lanka.

“Great fresh food, friendly owners and great music!”
Reviewed 19 February 2013

Living here in Fort for several months, I walked into this place only some time ago. The food was delicious. It is a very cosy small place with an open kitchen. All of the vegetables are fresh and although it is not the cheapest, it is not expensive either (+-900Rs). This together with the friendly stff and their very tasteful music (Louis Armstrong) made it one of the best dining experiences so for in Sri Lanka. Will definitely go more.
In contrary to other places in the Fort, you can still walk in this place at 8.30 or 9pm and have dinner.

“Tiny but full of buzz!”
Reviewed 24 June 2012

This cafe is the size of a small garage but modern in design and decorated with funky art and Keep Calm posters. The food is okay and as it plays jazz it is a cool palace to hang out and enjoy the delights of the fort
