The title says it all really. Usually the more fancy Sri Lankan restaurants belittle the local cousine and try to cook as western as possible and this one is no exception but where most others fail, already at ingredient level, Flamingo actually pulls it off. SO! If you're looking for delicious Sri Lankan food you'll have to change town but if regular "international" (american and south european) is you plate of choice then this is it. Order anything and it will be very good, sometimes even delicious considering the price. Lousy (alcoholic) drinks though! Avoid those and stay with juices and lassies.
ps. there is no beach outside Flamingo anymore due to heavy erosion the last couple of years.
ps 2. the owner also runs a guest house across the street where you can find great and luxurious rooms for bargain prices. just remember to ask for a room on the backside (opposite the front) since the neighbouring clubs can be very disturbing during the night if you stay in a room facing the street, at least in this area. beware though of the janitor/cleaner guy - he's really trying ( I think) but can cause a lot of confusion and frustration if you let him go on.
ps 3. The Guest House was not to be found on Tripadvisor when this review was written so I leave my score here: 4/5
