Let’s start with the positives - the food is amazing. The signature snapper curry is delightful and all the meals beautifully balanced with gorgeous Sri Lankan flavours. Lovely lively ambience in a refined setting with soft lighting, the full white tablecloth experience, etc. Also it’s set back off Hastings street which gives it a cosy feel rather than sitting on the sidewalk.
The not so great - service could be better and more consistent for this type of dining. You either get a polished professional who is super attentive or someone who forgets you are there, forgets your order, forgets you asked for the bill.
Having said that the food is reward enough to go back again. Hastings street prices are ridiculous so you may as well pay a bit more still and get an excellent meal.

This review would have scored a 5 except that the waiter was so busy cleaning the restaurant ready to go home that he forgot to serve my final drink with my final course. We spent 5 minutes trying to wave him down which was annoying. When we finally got his attention, he said a silly comment like, ‘of that is funny’. We said, ‘not really’. We ordered the degustation with accompanying wines for $175. Simply superb. Perfect amount of food served. Perfect variety of taste. Perfectly cooked. The menu is on line and I recommend you look at the menu before arriving. Very buzzy atmosphere, most tables full. My helpful hint is be sure to book a table in holiday period to guarantee a seat. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed our meal here last time and I really wanted it to be as good or better this time.
We were staying in house and we booked in person the day before and were told we had two choices of sitting time. We chose the earlier time of 5.45pm and arrived about 3 minutes ahead of time to locked doors. It was windy and cold and while the wait staff could see a queue forming, we were ignored until the maitre d finally turned up 10 minutes later to heard us to our seats, squashing us all in side by side, so close your neighbours could join your conversation. We did have pleasant neighbours.

The food was mixed. Once again I chose Peter Kuravita’s signature Snapper Curry which was beautiful, cooked to perfection with an update of curry complements including a delicious tamarind croquette. We also chose two sides of vegetables which had definitely just been reheated and some fresh parsley added. It did nothing to disguise the fact the vegetables were past their best.
We declined dessert choosing to leave the restaurant and grab an icecream from the Hastings St shop next door.

We had lunch in the bar, was pretty overpriced for what you got & the chips were really over seasoned.

The kids meal was very good & big enough for our little ones to share.

It’s a really nice light, airy, cool setting, but it’s all a bit too “cool” and pricey for me.
