Collection is good. Salespersons are not interactive and friendly. When you see a product you like to buy. But when you see salespersons you change your mind.

Under a single roof you will find all types of Traditional Srilankan stuffs to buy for self or others. Comparing to other similar chains, they are more reasonable with wide variety of products......cloths, accessories, show pieces, toys, tea and what not.
