Stopped by for lunch and was greeted with a warm welcome. Was shown the seafood catches from that morning and picked out our own fish and prawns. Delicious whole baked fish with a fresh sri lankan salad. Very reasonably priced traditional meals. Highly recommend.

The food and service was amazing! Had fresh whole fish and jumbo prawns with a beautiful tropical salad. Some of the best seafood I had in 6 weeks of travel around Sri Lanka.

Nice place to eat. I had a good rice and curry. Was a bit surprised that the portion wasn't as big as we were used to in Sri Lanka. Just 4 small dishes instead of 6 or 7.

Chop suey with chicken was just delicious! It was the most tasty dinner I had by far in Sri-Lanka. The family who owns the restaurant is super hospitable. They cared about our way home by finding tuk-tuk. Thank you!
