We went here for dinner. After a warm welcome and ordering of refreshing cold drinks, the owner explained us the buffet. You can mix between about 7 or 8 traditional Sri Lankan rice and curry dishes. During our stay in Sri Lanka we tried local food a lot and this place was among the best. The delicious food, the good value for money and the familial atmosphere are the main reasons why you should stop by.

Very tasty home cooked Sri Lankan food buffet style, mostly veg. Much healthier than other options, clean, authentic. Family atmosphere, we had a great time there.

Our driver took us here for our first meal at lunch. Open to the experience we dived in. It was delicious. And cheap. I like my curries hotter in both spice and temperature but over-all a very nice meal.
Little buffet style with 6 available dishes and two rices and some fresh fruit served at the end for around 500 rupee. Pretty good.

Delicious selection of traditional Sri Lankan dishes - mostly vegetarian with some chicken too. 700Rp per person for the buffet and 200Rp per person for a freshly made juice. YUM
The family who run the restaurant are very kind and sweet. If we were staying longer in Dambulla we would certainly return!

This was our first Sri Lankan buffet so we didn't know what to expect, we were pleasantly surprised! It was 615pm so they just opened for dinner buffet. It was 700 rupees per person which I think is very reasonable, however fruit juices were extra and I think they should have been included. The food was all kept hot and consisted of 7 vegetable dishes (eggplant, white radish, lady fingers, beans, spinach, banana leaf) and 1 chicken curry dish with white and red rice. There was so much variety, and they say it changes every meal! I would definitely recommend this place
