Partner and I were looking for something healthy and often find it hard to find good salads in Sri Lanka. Thought we would try the green room and was so surprised to receive a fresh chicken salad!

We were a party of 8 people including 5 children who loved their food (chicken fingers and fries). Adults enjoyed Sri Lankin dishes including fresh caught tuna. Would go back.

This cosy restaurant located on the main road has everything! A nice menu with tasty dishes, gentle people, nice atmosphere, cute cats and did i forget to mention GREAT FOOD? The prices are relatively cheap in comparison with other arugam bay diners. We ate there twice, im already hungry for number three!
