Ammahula is conveniently located opposite the Camelot Beach Hotel. The manager of Ammahula has a amusing click with the Netherlands. The quality of food exceeded my expectations. Sometimes typical Dutch dishes are being served. Such as Kroketten, bitterballen and tosties. A place to return to.

We had the vegetarian curry and it was really tasty! Also, unlike many places in Sri Lanka, the ambience is great and the staff are friendly! There's also a library and the owner lets you borrow books! We loved this feature as it's hard to find books here in Negombo!

Owner greeted me and had a nice chat while waiting for my curry. Chicken curry, pineapple curry both lovely. Huge portions including the rice, coconut sambal, pineapple and chicken curry. Including my two soft drinks, this was my cheapest meal in Negombo too. Would return.

I was pleased to find as a vegetarian I could get a traditional Sri Lankan vegetable curry and was asked how spicy I would like it. I went for spicy and it was fantastic. The staff are very friendly and helpful. It was so good I went back again with a friend. The price was also very good.

This was my first meal in sri lanka and i was blown away with the flavours and friendliness of the owner and what appeared to be her family. Really good pricing for the size of the meal recieved and brought to you with a smile. Really good family style restaurant that would be very easy to walk straight past but... More

On arrival in Sri Lanka we had a nice lunch at Ammehula. Prices are reasonable and food is certainly not bad.
