The place is centrally loctated at the cluster of restaurants in Sigirya, opposite of the Nilmini lodge. It has a nice seating area upstairs but the food is just average, not bad, not particularly good. Basic tourist grub, at 900 LRK for a mixed spagetthi and diet Coke a tad expensive to my taste.

Went for lunch, they had run out of string hoppers and fish so there weren't too many options for me as a gluten sensitive pescatarian (I know I'm annoying!). Had a very plain avocado salad, an ok vegetable soup and 'banana chips' which were not plantain style as the picture on the menu seemed to indicate but pieces of banana... More

The food is average, hospitality is nice. Beer is served only after 5pm and they go and purchase it when you order it...Wifi is free

We have been here twice during our 3 night stay in sigiriya. So, we really liked it! The terrace is a cosy space and you have the chance to meet with other guests. Atmosfere is informal and relaxed (except when customers from China are around). Food is simply delicious and fresh, rice and curry is a MUST! They bring 7... More

I had the Roti plate with vegetables which was so delicious and my husband had the veggie sandwich. We came here one more time for dinner and I... More

The food here was fantastic! Ordered a chicken curry and vegetable kottu and it was enough to feed an army! Really good quality too. The only bad thing to mention was that my gf and I asked for some beer and they said they didn't have any. Soon after, they served a small group with beers??!

We loved the design, with a stairs on the old big tree in the middle of the restaurant on the ground floor. There are two floors up stairs and it looks very cosy. There are sockets and we got the plugs to recharge our phones. They have good local menu. We had curries, vegetable soup, fruit salad and King coconut... More
