We had rice with curries and devilled ( sweet and sour) fish for diner. It was the best and fresh prepared food we had in three weeks in Sri Lanka. Banana fritrets as desert, also super.

Reasonable prices for good food and portions. The area upstairs is nicer then the basement as they have a nice lounge area there.

I've been trying the top-ranked restaurants around Unawatuna, wasn't impressed until I came here. The 4-curry dishes are where it's at. Absolutely delicious. Big portions and also best price-to-quality in the area. We are here a couple more days and will definitely be back!
