Stumbled in here after initially heading to spoons which wasn't open. I got a fantastic curry here. Thicker than the usual Sri Lankan curries and really full of flavour. More of an Irish/British curry. I would highly recommend.

We ate here twice during our stay and the cafe offered a good selection for a good price. This was a no frills option but was still tasty and affordable.

A beautiful small restaurant in a beautiful lane in the Galle fort area. We went there on 9th Oct 2016 for dinner and really enjoyed the quaint and peaceful time there with the Pedlar's special Pizza, Sphagetti, and Ice & flavored tea...!!! The service was fast, the waiter was very soft spoken and nice and again, the food and drinks... More
