Such good rice and curry! The best Sri Lankan send off we could ask for before a long voyage back to Negombo! Loved the location and the quaint set up! Wear mosquito repellant in the evenings !

We had the rice and 10 curries- the restaurant speciality. All curries were delicious, full of flavour and generous serves. Set in a small quiet lane amongst some vines and fairly lights out front- it was a beautiful setting. The waiter who served us was so friendly, smily and likeable! Great value in the fort.

Simple dining with bags of flavour. Ten curries (mainly vegetarian) served with rice in a tiny spot off the main Galle shopping roads. Absolutely delicious food, fresh and each tasty, each curry is different and a great way to sample the island's dishes. Friendly staff. Get there early (opens at 12.30pm for lunch) to ensure you get a table).

The first night we were in Galle we ate in our hotel - which was very good. We then succeeded in finding this place the next morning (having read the TA reviews) and decided it looked ok. They do not take reservations. Anyway we turned up in the evening and got a table. Everything you have read about the format... More

Read many good reviews about this place and decided to give it a try and I can only say about it in one sentence: it does live up to our expectations. This is the right place in Galle Fort if you are looking for a reasonably priced Sri Lankan meal. Not only price wise, but the quality of the food... More

This restaurant was the only full one around and with good reason. There were a few tables open and the service was efficient, so the turnaround of customers was quick. The food was flavourful and there was lots of variety, and it wasn't over-the-top spicy (although the sign said you could request spicier). There are not many options outside of... More

Quaint little place on a side street off Pedlar. Ordering is easy as the restaurant only offers a 10 curry set for 2 with rice for RS950. Food was really good and portions were decent. Small cans of Lion Beer are available (many restaurants in Fort Galle do not serve alcohol). Only drawback is no food available for young children... More

Try the local reis and curry. Family business very well runned with mama cooking and a great service. Not many options just go for the set meal where you can try many types of curries. It is an authentic meal in the touristic and expensive Galle in a very quiet small road.
