We dined here last night and enjoyed every dish that was in the buffet! The way they cook curry is different, so don't expect the spread to be on the usual spicy side. The flavors were present, unexpected, and complemented each other very well. It's...More

We nearly walked past this place - I'm so glad we didn't! The food was absolutely incredible with so much flavour. It was definitely one of the best meals we had while in Sri Lanka, can't recommend it enough.

We visited Coconut Sambol after seeing reviews on Trip Advisor. Staff were welcoming and helpful, all you can eat Sri Lankan curries was fantastic, we loved the Chicken curry and Eggplant Banana curry. We just wished we came more hungry to get our monies worth!

We were walking around Galle Fort looking for a place to eat and asked a local jewelry store manager a place to suggest. And we are so glad he suggested Coconut Sambol. While the chicken curry was slightly bland, everything else was fantastic. We loved...More

It’s very small, has seating for about 12. There’s plenty of other options around the fort, loads of reviews on tripadvisor for places.
