Food was ok. Not really authentic Chinese, more along the lines of Western style Chinese. Friendly staff and quick service

Atmosphere was relaxed and clean. Well cooked tasty dishes are definitely recommended. Staff members are very knowledgeable and helpful on their own city and its kandyan culture. Friendly and welcoming place to dine with friends and family.
