We went for lunch on 22nd April while coming from Kataragama. On the way we were looking for many places where they had Rs. 200 buffet lunch with rice and curry per person, but that did not match our expectation. So we reached to Tissamaharama...More

I don't like leaving negative reviews but in this case......... I would definitely agree with the reviews that state that this restaurant is overpriced and low quality food. If your tour company drags you here, avoid the ‘Club Sandwich’. Not only did it take half...More
