We arrived for dinner and delighted at the atmosphere with the waves crashing around us and the lights of the boats coming in and out of the harbour. We enjoyed calamari to share which was fresh and so tender with just the right amount of...spice. Followed by their signature Sri Lankan Prawn curry with vegetable rice and bread. A lovely evening and would recommend a visit here in the Galle Fort Old Dutch Hospital building.More

It's disappointing how they show such attitude towards locals while treating foreigners so well. While it's great to treat foreigners nicely, they should extend the same courtesy to locals too.

We had a fantastic lunch here and it was so good we came back for dinner too! The staff work really hard (a chef was off at the time we visited) and the food was amazing, I had a delicious crab curry for dinner. The...staff were also really friendly and helpful. If you order drinks that need to be prepared they will be made fresh so will obviously take longer than a prepared drink e.g beer, which gives you time enjoy the views at this fantastic spot, the food and drinks will be worth it, we tried several different drinks. Also, there is a bathroom right next door, no need to go downstairs. A beautiful place thank you!More

First table to sit down and over an hour later still no food. The drinks are fast but they have no handle over their kitchen. Go elsewhere if you want a proper meal with service.

Overlooking the bay in Galle, Minute by Tuk Tuk offers great food amidst lovely surroundings. The staff are friendly and really helpful too. Whilst there are lots of options to eat in Galle Fort, don’t miss this local offering, it’s well worth it, we loved...it.More

Aside from the view, there’s not much I can recommend. Food was mediocre and service inattentive - or at least they just chose to ignore me. No bathroom, you need to go downstairs to the compound bathroom to wash your hands.

One of my favourite restaurants in Galle Fort. First floor in the old Dutch Hospital. A nice view over the bay. I've never been disappointed here. Nice menu with reasonable prices. Last time I've got a perfect medium rare tuna steak with garlic sauce and...mashed potatoes. For a light lunch the watermelon salad with feta cheese is delicious. And they serve a very nice espressoMore

The restaurant is located on 1st floor of the old Dutch Hospital and has lovely views over the water and has a nice ambience What makes this place...special are the folks working there. Their friendliness and helpfulness was much appreciated. I would love to returnMore

We went for a drink after a day in Galle and ordered two mocktails as the view is fantastic. Both were in small glasses and full of ice cubes so very little drink content. The mojito also was so full of sugar it was undrinkable....They appeared also to contain concentrate rather than fresh fruit juice. I returned the mojito and to their credit was not charged. I can’t comment on the food as we didnt eat here.More

We celebrated a special birthday at Minute by Tuk Tuk in Galle, and it was nothing short of amazing. Preeth and the team were outstanding hosts, ensuring a memorable experience for our large group. The seafood platter was a highlight - fresh, flavorful, and beautifully...presented. The entire menu showcased culinary excellence. The staff's attentive service and warm hospitality added to the overall joy of the celebration. Minute by Tuk Tuk is a must-visit in Galle for its delicious food, inviting ambiance, and top-notch service. Thanks to Preeth and the team for making this birthday bash truly special. Looking forward to returning for more culinary delights!More

Great location and considered dinning but ultimately didn’t look at menu as the smell from open sewer on the beach put us off so we hurriedly finished drinks and left.

A minute by tuk tuk.. but an hour and no food. Starters were ok. But the mains took forever, and some confusion amongst the staff. We left without any mains, to continue our tour.

Horrendous rainstorm and manager made us feel at home. Authentic Sri Lanka curry and rotti, and great Lion beer. Engaging conversations on Sri Lanka local culture and society all with grace. Overall a terrific evening and we felt like part of the family. Recommended.

You don't need to book in advance - the guys here know how to handle a crowd. Will find you a place even if the place is full. If your going with a large group more than 10 table maybe a problem.
