It looks like a really nice place and the view is nice, but thats the only good thing I can say from our experience here. Took one hour to get the drinks (and they were wrong) and food was not good either. They were understaffed and service was very slow. Also this is more pricy than most places around with... More

We ate dinner here to try the Kottu Roti, one very one chicken - both very yummy, very much like a pad-thai. With a soft drink each it cost us LKR850. There were quite a good selection of meals some of which were quite western tourist friendly, but we wanted to try more local food. Sit upstairs as you are... More

I have eaten here a coupe of times. The food was nice and fresh and the prices seemed reasonable. Beer is available tho not advertised. The WiFi was good, not great, but free.

The place is centrally loctated at the cluster of restaurants in Sigirya, opposite of the Nilmini lodge. It has a nice seating area upstairs but the food is just average, not bad, not particularly good. Basic tourist grub, at 900 LRK for a mixed spagetthi and diet Coke a tad expensive to my taste.

Went for lunch, they had run out of string hoppers and fish so there weren't too many options for me as a gluten sensitive pescatarian (I know I'm annoying!). Had a very plain avocado salad, an ok vegetable soup and 'banana chips' which were not plantain style as the picture on the menu seemed to indicate but pieces of banana... More

We have been here twice during our 3 night stay in sigiriya. So, we really liked it! The terrace is a cosy space and you have the chance to meet with other guests. Atmosfere is informal and relaxed (except when customers from China are around). Food is simply delicious and fresh, rice and curry is a MUST! They bring 7... More
