The food here is delicious. Hands down best meal I have had in Sri Lanka. The garlic curry, eggplant curry and chickpeas especially stood out. Everyone wastes their time on the mediocre restaurants off the main street and misses the good stuff!

We read about Rawana in the Lonely Planet, booked a table and preordered the Rice and Curry before 4pm like they advice. When we arrived it seemed they weren't expecting us, and we were put in a waiting room. After 15 minutes we had observed...More
