Just to endorse other reviews. If I had access to this range of good veggie curries I could quite easily become a vegetarian. Location was in a side street so had to search for it. A few tables outside but we sat inside. Fans made it OK

Nice idea - set menu with 9 curries (although we had far superior home cooked curries to be honest) and the place was packed out. Only two staff, so a long wait.The exterior is great - looks like a fairy grotto, but inside it was rather scruffy, with several tables piled high with dirty dishes and no one to clear... More

We went there for dinner after reading all good reviews and we wanted to compare curry for two with other curries we had in Sri Lanka so far. It was really busy. We had to wait for table to be cleared. Order was taken quickly and we didn't wait too long. Waiter was very busy but he was smiling all... More

If you are starving for a rice and curry, I really recommend this place in Galle, inside the Fort. We missed the booking we've make and arrived only at 9:30pm. Although the kitchen was about to close, they welcomed us and delivered a beautiful meal. Everything was devine, so go with a good empty stomach, plenty of food!

We had the 10 dish curry and we were more than satisfied. Very friendly and the guy serving was giving trip suggestions as well as telling the history of the dishes. Totally charming and a lot of value for money. The WC could have been better but it is probably part of the charm - simplicity.

Before I came to this place, I ate rice and curry in various local eateries around Sri Lanka. They were spicy and that's how the traditional rice and curry is supposed to be. The one in Lucky Fort is obviously made for whimpy tourists. Plus it is 3-4 times more expensive than in a simple local 'hotel'. Staff was nice... More

We went there twice, ordered the same dish (rice with 10 curries) and found that the curry dishes they served was slight different each time. The 950Rs curry was very delicious, and definitely enough for 2 people to share. The food itself was novel for us. Besides, the papaya juice and passion juice are fresh and tasty, 10/10 recommend.

Arrived to a que waiting for tables but only had to wait around 10minutes to get a seat which we were happy to do. The tables are close together but this really helps to create a warm and friendly atmosphere - many tables were chatting to one another and exchanging travel stories. Our food arrived pretty prompty considering how busy... More
