“Not a good curry”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2013

We had two regular curries here (chicken and prawn) and neither of them where worth the money we paid. Where's the spice that Sri Lanka is famous for? overcooked prawns and chicken that was 90 bone and 10% meat.

Can't recommend!

“Great food, little prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2013 via mobile

This is of course one of the gastronomic highlights, not because of expensive or exotic dishes no through the incredible atmosphere that is something between the authentic, local food combined with the gorgeous friendliness of the staff and the tasty and worth every dime meals.

“Very nice ambiance and seafood!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2013

It feels like you are sitting on the balcony of your friend's house with some great seafood and curries accompanied by the breeze from the sea and great local beer. Delicious food at an affordable prize
