Unlike pretty much everywhere else on the main road, this place does fantastic, honest food at far more reasonable prices that anywhere else. I had the prawn curry and it was genuinely one of the best dishes I've eaten during my month in the isle. One of Sri Lanka's gems for sure.

If I could give this place a zero I would for the sheer nastiness of the staff working at a so_called restaurant. If.they put half the effort info their food, it would attract some customers.

Right opposite the prestige Jetwing Blue. This cafe/Restaurant has lots of options. My partner is particular about spicy foods, the chef accommodated changes on the menu without any hassle at all. I also made my own lunch with the chefs recommendations (not on the menu). Tasted so good, I went back for more the following day! Little gem!!

Directly opposite Jetwing Blue this restaurant is by far the best on the street. Friendly staff, clean and always welcoming Chef can happily and willingly make special orders if you there is nothing on the menu you fancy (good for fussy kids) Both western and traditional Sri Lankan food and prices are reasonable too. Ate here one day then came... More

The restaurant has no sign on the front, yet you'll know it is the one since it has a tree growing in the middle of the open air dining area and is right across the street from Jetwing Blue hotel. The restaurant setting is simple and has a casual beach-town vibe. At night the have a lot of tiny lights... More

We had lunch here on our first day and loved the seafoodsoup and vegetablecurry. We discussed with the very friendly owner the possibilities to travel to Kandy by train next day. Three weeks later we came back for our last dinner. The owner didn't only recognise us, but even asked "did you manage to go to Kandy by train?" This... More

We had both small plates for one of our group and traditional curry which had multiple options for chicken, prawns and others. Service was good but no credit cards accepted so bring cash.

The word Oysters captured my eyes! I thought it is an oyster bar. It turned out to be a restaurant serving local food and western food. Despite the little disappointment that I wasn't getting oysters, the food is of good standard and the service was superb. I had a fried chicken, green salad and seafood curry. They were all tasty...
