This is a hidden gem if you’re after some authentic Sri Lankan food made with care. No frills, just food that’s bang on the money

We had a cooking class with Danny and his wife and had an excellent experience. We wrote down the recipes and had fun chatting to them. The food is excellent, best sambol and eggplant curry in Sri Lanka.

Great curry! This is also the only thing served in the restaurant in regards to food so this is something they are very good at. In fact one of the best we have had while traveling around Sri Lanka! Highly recommended!

The lowest quality of curry I had on Sri Lanka roundtrip. There’s nothing in here that you need to taste, see or experience. We ordered vegetable curry and some of the dishes were blunt, had a strange taste and two were just hot, not tasty,...More
