We stopped by for lunch on the way back to Colombo as we had been craving crab and were pretty pleased to see the sign ... pretty enough restaurant, open sided with a view of the beach... , but first we had to find someone to serve us! We actually had to walk right through the hotel all the way to the main dining area to look for someone as there was absolutely nobody in sight... once the staff were located they were fairly nice and helpful but having said that perhaps the rules are a bit rigid, on inquiring as to whether I could have a starter portion of the crab tortellini instead of a mains size ( we had ordered loads of crab so did nt want to fill up) i was told I could not and they could nt think of a good reason as to why I couldnt either!
We had ordered garlic rice and what we got was regular sri lankan yellow rice which I had actually seen on the buffet earlier when we were looking for someone.. we also ordered singapore chillie crab as well as Sri lankan Crab curry... what a disaster, the crab was stringy and old, obviously been frozen for a good amount of time, i suspect if was off the Sunday buffet as well as I saw something very similar.. some of the crab the flesh was mushy, and the singapore chillie crab had a tasteless watery sauce which tasted of ketchup!
absolutely the worst crab meal we had ever had, such a pity... and certainly a waste of money..
Sorry, cant find anything positive to say...
