“Yummy Sri Lankan Oemlet”
Reviewed 16 April 2014 via mobile

While on an unsuccessful mission to find the elusive egg hopper in Hikka, we ended up at JLH for b'fast. The service was lovely. The pot of coffee was good, if a little weak, but the Sri Lankan omelets were crispy, salty, spicy deliciousness. And the mango lassi really hit the spot. It's worth mentioning that the beach view was heavenly, too.

“Outstanding - don't miss the seafood platter!”
Reviewed 12 April 2014 via mobile

Really fantastic food and a great location right over the ocean. The seafood platter is amazing - huge and delicious with every type of grilled seafood imaginable. Incredible value for money and excellent service too. One visit wasn't enough - if I could go there right now I would!

Food is not so good. Shark steak smells very bad. My friend told the service man& he is didn't care about this.
Very poor service

“Wonderful setting.”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

The food here is excellent. As long as you aren't vegetarian you must try their JLH burger YUMMY. You can also get reasonably priced wine here if you miss it.

“Great little find”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

Friendly staff, lots of really fresh fish and a wonderful setting right on the beach. The staff were not only friendly, they were impressively honest! One of us left some money on the table; the owner must have found out from our tuk tuk driver where we were staying and telephoned us to let us know. Pretty impressive!
