Came here for dinner as we were staying just down the road. The food was really good just a little over priced. The crab cakes to start are beautiful as is the Sri Lankan fish curry.

For the real taste of this amazing adventure called Sri Lankan cuisine, i have tasted no better place Its exceptional. Be sure to order the curry crab. Sri lanka has the most tasty seafood perfectly offered on a number of plates at every sitting. I wish i could afford a permenant suite.
