After 3 weeks in Sri Lanka we went to Tuskers on one of our last nights. Compared with other seafood we had , this was very disappointing. Over cooked and small portions.

We are here on the last night of our holiday before flying home to the UK. We were staying at the Pledge 3 hotel which is a stones throw from this restaurant. Our first impressions was that it looked busy and it was inviting. So we didn't pay much heed to the relatively bland menu with few traditional Sri Lankan... More

The menu has standard tourist items - the food was bland, the portions small and the prices high. The highlight of out meal was the home made spring rolls - from there it was down hill. Afterwards, we walked up the road to a little roadside stall and had fantastic Rotty for a 20th of the price...

One of the best restaurants I have visited in Negombo, definitely worth going to. The staff are very friendly, even when rushed and the food is some of the best I have had in Negombo. I had Beef Kangkun (sorry if spelt incorrectly) and my husband had Devilled Pork, both were very tasty indeed. We had pudding (unusual for us)... More

Tusker Restaurant opened in May 2011 to cater to every food loving people. The cozy atmosphere and lots of open space is very relaxing. Beside Tusker Restaurant being solar powered we are using a lot of ingredients from our own farm, like eggs,pepper,chilies,bananas,mangoes,lime and lemon. We also support very much feeding mothers,children with or without special needs and our dear friends the dogs. Our restaurant is of course wheelchair friendly as well. Come with your family to enjoy the evening. We speak French,Dutch,English and German.
