Forgettable experience. Driver recommended this place. From previous comments I can see that a lot of drivers recommend this place. Probably because they get a commission from the restaurant because the food and experience was terrible. We sadly got played by our driver (which is uncommon for Sri Lankans) Quality: Spicy and not authentic Sri Lankan (which they claim). I... More

We went to the restaurant and where very disappointed. The dinner buffet is big, but the food did not convince us. The drinks where very expensive and not drinkable. The Prices in the menu written are not the same as on the bill (additional tax for government) which made our bill unexpected high. The dinner was not worth the money.

It was recommended by a cab driver . Good sri lankan spread for both veg and non-veg. Fresh appam with spicy curries was delicious.

We came here as a large group and I was pleasantly surprised with the variety of Sri Lankan dishes on offer. There was also a separate station dedicated to hoppers. The only thing is if you don't like spicy food, well then there isn't much on offer. If memory service me correctly there was one plain rice and one plain... More

I took my in-laws to Raja Bojun on their first night in Colombo. It was their first time to Sri Lanka, and I thought the selection of dishes in the buffet was excellent - they got to try a bit of everything - not just rice, but string hoppers, hoppers, pittu, roti. Lots of vegetable dishes. Good selection of desserts.... More

We had tonight's dinner there with group of friends. Nice decor and the food was absolutely delicious. I think all Sri Lankan as we requested from our guide. The only downside was the owner. I did ask the young boy who was taking our drinks order what type of white wine was on offer by glass. He didn't get it... More

Decided to try this place for lunch. No regrets; it had a good spread of Sri Lankan buffet - Chicken, Fish, crab, variety of vegetarian, sweets...the list goes on. Given it was a week day, the place was not crowded, so it was comfortable. Pricing was reasonable.

Excellent place to take a foreign visitor. All sorts of traditional Sri Lankan food under one roof. We took some of our friends down for a holiday from USA and they just loved the hopper stand. The rice and curry part of it was mediocre. But the rest of it was right on the money. The crab curry was insanely... More

If you need a typical Sri Lankan meal - then this is the place. Understand on a weekend it is quite crowded. We had variety of dishes to choose from and they were great. Really enjoyed the food.
