It’s quite hard to find real Sri Lankan cuisine in Galle: too many restaurants offer western food. Here is the real thing: a small family restaurant where the most popular choice is 10 small bowls of different curries (almost all vegetable) with rice; perhaps followed...by buffalo curd with honey. Absolutely authentic and homely, as well as being healthy and superb value. No credit cards.More

This restaurant is so highly rated, we just had to try it and it came up to expectations. A basic no frills place, very simple menu which the family seem to put a lot of passion into what they are serving. Like the vast majority...of diners, we opted for the 10 curry sample menu, which was delicious. There is only one small portion of the chicken dish and I was concerned it would not be filling enough but I was proved wrong... the amount served for two people is more than adequate. The quality and value for money is hard to beat. The atmosphere is very simple and basic but the food us certainly not. It's one of those places you just have to try....More

Family owned place offering exquisite Sri Lankan meals and a cool respite from the punishing midday sun. Terrific way to mark the halfway point of a day tour of the fort.

Found this wonderful place from trip advisor reviews. The place is quaint but the food is wonderful. Their most popular meal is their 10 veg curries a meat one and popadums with rice. A lovely meal for two people costing 3600 Sri Lankan rupees at...400 to £1. The owners are charming and very helpful. It was busy each time we went but they always managed to find a table.More

Best curries in our tour of Sri Lanka. We had the 10 sharing curries, which were fantastic, and I had to have an extra of the potato curry and dhall. Was so good we went back on our final night.

We found this restaurant by accident walking around one evening. Such a friendly place. The food was delicious and the price was very reasonable. We just wish we’d found it earlier.

What a lovely place we found just round the corner from our hotel. The family run restaurant welcomed our gorup of 6 with warm smiles and produced an excellent array of curry dishes (not too spicy btw) and had an amazing soft drinks selection as...well as beer. We had a relaxed and great evening and really felt at home here.More

The best food we have had in Sri Lanka! Their signature dish of 10 curries to share (one being meat if you wish) with extra servings of any you love for free with rice and popadoms. Honestly all the dishes were brilliant and the pineapple...curry was to die for! We wish we could get extras but we were so full. Very cheap homemade family foodMore

We had a lovely welcome. Ordered 2 Lion beers and the rice & curry dish with 10 vegetable curries and chicken one. Every single dish was perfection. The Dal was truly amazing and a stand out for me but all the curries were outstanding it...has to be said. Some of them certainly woke the taste buds up with a lovely mouth tingle but not excessive heat, just a nice warming tingle. The meal and 2 beers was 5885 LKR, this was unbelievable value. Highly recommendedMore

As authentic as it gets. Wonderful Sri Lankan food from a smiling and great vibes waitress for a very cheap price. We shared the 10 curries option and loved having so much variety. Incredible value.

The Sri Lankan Thaali made my soul happy. 10 dishes served with White rice and each one better than the other. A beautiful mix of flavours with perfect hospitality. Quaint little place. One can feel the love put into making each dish. DIVINE

Possibly the nicest food so far in Sri Lanka … delicious amount of spice & gorgeous curry sauces. Small family place , and a complimentary coconut honey pudding at the end. 100% worth a visit

The food is unpretentious and authentic, it has an absolutely home cooked flavor and vibes. If you want to taste a variety of Sri Lankan curries all at a go, this is the place to try . It’s very good value for money and the...owner is pleasant, polite and warm. The juices and lassi deserve some mention, they are made with a lot of fresh fruits , and you can almost eat the fruits in your drink! So good! I will not hesitate to eat there again on my next visit to Galle.More

3/5 stars. Food was good but took way too long for service and they mixed everything up. May be of I didn't know that trip advisor ranked it #1 Galle I might have had a better impression.
