Visited here after a while and the change in the food was absolutely drastic! The BBQ chicken was overpowered with way too much of spices making it quite inedible.

The rice is really good but they don't give any gravy. We asked if we could pay extra and get it, they still said no. The Nugegoda Big Bite has very unresponsive staff. They are not very cooperative and very lethargic.

We went to here on our first night in Sri Lanka and it was nice and cheap. We have been to more expensive places recently which were not as nice!

Has this classic middle eastern average restaurant appeal, and you see sacks of imported rice stacked right at the entrance, used for their delicacies The BBQ Biryani simply is a treat to your senses, the aroma, the taste and the beauty of it all.
