“Superb, one of the best curries we had in Sri Lanka”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2014

We went here after working up an appetite in the Botanical Gardens. Obviously a stop on the tourist path with several coaches parked up and two shops downstairs selling tea and jewellery. Forget these and go straight up to the stairs to the restaurant. Staff are professional and really friendly, they got it just right and got a well deserved tip. The place itself is nicely done and quite upmarket, considering this the food was reasonably priced.

We absolutely loved the Sri Lankan curries, it came with 10 small dishes all good particularly the vegetable ones. Our close second best curry in our SL trip after our home cooked meal in Kandy Guest House. The kids western options were also excellent. Heartily recommend!
