“Brilliant food!”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

Our driver took us here one night for dinner for a traditional Sri Lankan curry. We were not let down with the food! For 850 rupees each (just under £5 if I'm right) we both ordered chicken curry and rice. As well as the main curry we received a variety of different side dishes, all were beautifully cooked and very flavorsome! I would definitely go if you have the chance!

“Some of the best food I had while in Sri Lanka”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

I was staying at a hotel down the road and read reviews about JC Village, so I took a Tuk-Tuk down to eat dinner at about 9pm. I had Sri Lankan curry and rice, and I would say this is one of the best meals I had while in Sri Lanka. The fish curry was great, and they provided about 8 or 9 other fresh curries to go along with- lady fingers, jack fruit, coconut, and many more.

Reviewed 30 March 2014

A hard place to find its about 5klms from Dambulla This is also a hotel as well.We went for lunch and arrived late as to no one new where it was,but no problem they put on about an 8 course curry which was excellent to say the least similar to a thali but better.They then offered us a free dessert but there was no room left

“Idyllic and peaceful”
Reviewed 13 May 2013

We stayed here for one night on our honeymoon - after a day of visiting Sigirya and going on elephant safari we were shattered. They welcomed us warmly and showed us the room, where there was a honeymoon heart display on the bed!! It was dark but we still managed a swim before dinner. Room was simple and airy and could have had more in it, but was cool and that's all that matters! It was such a perfect setting we would've liked to stay longer but had to leave for a busy day to Kandy. The food was ok, nothing to write home about, but the little restaurant where we ate the food was lovely. Maybe a little overpriced compared to some other places, but the service was great. One particular member of staff was very helpful and looked after us our whole stay.
