This is without a doubt the tastiest rice & curry I have eaten in Sri Lanka. The buffet is an amazing variety of local vegetables cooked in so many different ways. The Aubergine & the pumpkin have to be 2 of my favourites. The accompaniments are coconut roti, vegetable noodles, rice & poppadam. Spicy chicken can be requested. The range is delightful & it's home cooking by mum at its best. Tea, coffee is included along with fruit how on earth can you go wrong. Undercover restaurant offering protection from the rain & a pretty garden view. After you take in the cultural sites make a turn here for lunch & be amazed like I was.

We loved our lunch here as a family. The family run business was attentive and the food very good and in good quantities. The vegetable curries were particularly good. Service was quick and of high quality. The owner was chatty and friendly. We felt we'd made firm friends with them in just minutes. Very enjoyable and well recommended. Our guide was right to recommend such a place!
