I'd heard a lot about this place and so we decided to try it out in a relatively quiet night. We ordered the hoppers and dry spiced devilled chicken and neither was tasty, neither was what we expected from a sri lankan restaurant.

Visited ABL with some friends who all love a good curry, that's exactly what we got. We turned up not realising ABL is BYOB so had to nip out and find an offy. Great curries but my favourite was the mutton kothu, basically spiced lamb...More

This place is epic. Bring cash as their card machine never works. Dishes are cheap and super tasty. Gets really busy on the usual nights so if you've got a big group book in advance. BYO too which is amazing.

Went for a quick dinner with my girlfriend. We ordered the mutton rolls (deep fried, crunchy, delicious) and some lamb rogan, paneer and chicken tikka. It's the best Sri Lankan food I've ever tasted and the best curry! If my mouth could orgasm, it certainly...More

Went here for dinner last night -- everything from the super friendly service to the absolutely delicious food was totally worth the drive from central London. We read about the crab curry in the article where we found this restaurant so had to try it...More
