What a nice authentic Sri Lankan restaurant. Love the atmosphere. It's a seafood fiesta. You can get your selection of seafood made anyway you want. They will try to please you as much as possible. Super attentive staff. Must go when in Sri Lanka.

Loads of options, from salads to starters to soups to curries to desserts. Add to this, live counters - a fresh sea-food counter for made to order dishes, a live hopper counter, a live Kothu counter, a live traditional sweets counter.
