“Buffet lunch was great”
Reviewed 12 July 2013

Quite a good and cheap alternative to lunch at your hotel and the food was very good. When we went the chef was on hand to explain what was in each of the dishes and which were very spicy (= hot!)

“Expensive for the area”
Reviewed 26 March 2013

We had dinner here 1 night because we were staying in the motel. The food was fine but expensive, compared to the restaurant across the road - 900 for chicken and 400 for a beer.

We had 3 breakfasts and they were fine, the usual Sri Lankan fare - omlette, toast with jam, tea/coffee and they served a delicious fruit lassi as their juice. That was the best part of any food we ate there!

Service was ok but not great.

“Ignore your driver and Avoid!”
Reviewed 22 March 2013

Your driver may well suggest lunch in this place but remember that he not only gets his lunch for free but may also receive an 'introduction commission'!
This is a classic Sri Lanka tourist trap - it's not that the food is bad (although the locals eat different food than that served on the tourist buffet!?!) or that the place is dirty or that it is overly expensive - it's just not worth even stepping through the door when you can drive round the corner (about 5 minutes) and find some good hotels where the food (and service) is many times better! Try the Cinnamon Lodge and you'll see what we mean!

“Average restaurant”
Reviewed 24 February 2013

We ended having lunch here cause our driver took us...
We opted for the buffet lunch (not cheap for sri lanka standards..), it was ok, nothing memorable.
Plenty of options to choose in the buffet, sri lankan and continental.
I think the menu would have been better, not sure.
I would describe it as a tourist road restaurant, like thousands you find all around the world!
