We walked to the forks and wanted some food to keep us going. The food looked fresh and interesting. It was truly excellent, it was the best eggplant dish we’ve ever had, the spicy chicken dish was also exceptional. The server gave me a mix...of rice and noodles and was very friendly and accommodating. I would highly recommend, very reasonable prices too.More

The food here is always amazing! I recommend the eggplant curry and be sure to ask for their hot sauce on top. Great prices and service too

I bought a combo dinner with curried veggies and deviled chicken. both were really full of flavor! the veggies were cooked to soft, but that's gonna happen when you keep a dish hot for a long time. The seller was helpful and friendly. the grab...and go options looked good, too.More

We'd been looking for Sri Lankan food ever since he had spent three weeks in Sri Lanka in 2018. We found it at the Taste of Sri Lanka in The Forks Market. Try the kothu roti. You won't see in the buffet offering. The make...it per order: takes about 10 minutes tops. You can split one serving between two adults. The service is friendly, efficient, and helpful. The line that forms at noon moves quickly. The price is also very friendly on the pocketbook. Like the other food stalls in the market, it's a relaxed place. If you like South Asian food, you're going to love this.More

Wow! What customer service. The gentleman serving me was freindly, helpful on the spice levels and generous on portions..... but wait, when I went to pay, I realized I had misplaced my wallet. He did not skip a beat, told me to enjoy my lunch...and pay me after. I went back to my car, no wallet. They were so lovely and told me not to worry, pay them next time. The food was great but the people serving are priceless 😊More

I'm a sucker for samosas, and these did not disappoint! The curry was also very good, and so was the eggplant. The owner is very helpful and lets you try a piece before you decide what you'd like.

Read the reviews. Some are good, some are not. I decided to make my own judgement. Am I ever glad I did! The curry chicken is spicy and the taste is wonderful. The eggplant curry: oh wow! I asked for half rice and half noodles:...no problem. I asked for sauce on my noodles: no problem. Service with a smile. I would definitely eat here again!More

Fantastic plate of Sri Lankan food for $12. The vegetarian options are so tasty, especially the eggplant dish. Ask for extra hot sauce on the side if you like spicy food.
