always new things for breakfasts and so was dinners - good variety of selection, and tasty. Good and friendly service. Unfortunately the seating area can be stuffy due to fans only and rather disappointed with their crab dish

The buffet is really big with 5 cooking stations and a huge buffet. We paid 6000lkr for 2, including bottle of water, a coke and a beer. Quite expensive. The service was way below 5 star standard. Typical all inclusive ;( Try the service at Coconut Beach lodge and judge for yourself! Their service and hospitality was way better and... More

The only food that was ok was the rice a curry but you can have a buffet of that for 100 rs.. Desserts we're not fresh and the sushi wasn't good. Definitely not worth the price ( about 2200 rs)

We stayed at the hotel chaaya blu for 3 days and ate at the restaurant for this duration. I found the breakfast and dinner buffet quite varied and delicious. I however, do not know the price (since it was included in our stay) so cannot comment on 'value for money' aspect

Excellent buffet and choice of food. Good service and the best egg hoppers we tasted in Sri Lanka. There were specials on every night with themed food and live entertainment (background musicions) which was lovely.

Having to sit in the same place every day of your holiday..... strange but true. I am a non pork eater and had to keep away from the action stations that as cross contamination was taking place frequently.

As the Hôtel is brand new, the restaurant looks bright white, a huge dining room open on 3 sides through arcades. So there are fans everywhere. We only had a buffet dinner there. The hotel was fully booked. Very good, fresh dishes, local and international, so spicy curries at will. A quite large selection, including some great dishes to our... More
