Great place with good food and hospitality. As the ads suggest and other reviews too, they offer good food with a home touch. Lovely options for both veg and non-veg and summed up with a dessert of either Lassi or ice cream. You cannot miss this place on the way to Sigiriya on the left. Lots of places to sit, however, can be crowded during peak lunch hours. The lunch buffet is priced at around LKR 950. Sounds a little too expensive, but the options around are similar.

We had an amazing dinner here. The owner is really kind and offered us so big choices of not too spicy and delicious food we hardly were able to eat it and for a really affordable price.

We have stopped at Sakura for lunch on our way to Heritance Kandalama. It is exactly same as the reviews and more!! From the owner to the support staff are very friendly and helpful. As it is a little family restaurant it provides you a lovely and caring atmosphere along with delicious food and service. There are variety of options for a fussy eater like myself!!!! We highly recommend the restaurant to both local and foreign tourists as it is quite affordable too.

we were a bit hesitant when we arrived as it looks like a very touristy place (and it actually is), but the food was amazing, fresh and very close to other homemade curries we had in Sri Lanka. Very good stop during sightseeing. Your driver eats for free, which is a bonus for them :)

The restaurant offers a small buffet of as close as it can get home made Sri Lankan food but the real deal here is the kindness of the staff. One could honestly not ask for more.
