One of the best meals we've had in Sri Lanka. They have a wide menu selection. We opted for the Sri Lankan dishes - they were delicious. They also do great cocktails.

Diner for two at this place. Really busy but you cant notice that the quality of the food goes down. It seems a steady machine in producing food and nice drinks. I would like to recommend it to every one.

This place is always busy and understandably so. It serves a good variety of really delicious food and has a lively atmosphere. A well serviced kitchen means small waiting times and fresh seafood, meat and vegetarian options as well as good cocktails means a sure crowd pleaser.

The food wasnt bad but the Service was slow and a litle bit childish. We wait for 20 minutes for one beer. The waiters were young and slow.
