The food was good, but everytime somebody coming in and telling us that we have to order mains fast as the table is reserved for next person too, was really really annoying. I mean if I am spending $150+ for two people I need my time and space. We sat there for a total of 1.5 hours and been reminded about the next reservation 4-5 times. I mean is this for real?? Definitely not visiting again, as I don't like to shovel my food.

We had a great night out, 1st time since the Covid shutdown so it was good just to go out to dinner. The staff were very attentive and the food was sublime especially the prawn entree.

The restaurant should either alter it's entrance to enable a wheelchair to be driven into it or get a 2 feet ramp which can be bought on eBay for less than 100.00.
I was also told that the wash room was not disabled friendly and if this fine super duper restaurant wants to cater for the disabled like me they should endeavour to get these shortcomings resolved.

This time, the mild butter chicken was a bit spicy, so the 8 year old could only eat the fried rice and roti. Last time it was not at all spicy.

We have been here multiple times, this time with 5 people, all going for the 3 course banquet.
We went for the mild option, excellent choice. The food was excellent in one word. Highly recommended restaurant with very friendly service, we will be back for sure.

Food and service was great ... very helpful floor staff who were only too happy to offer suggestions when asked.
Bathrooms could do with some attention however ... they need a good clean. Lots of flies around the bathroom too which was unpleasant.

Disappointed as the service standards have dropped and some of the dishes were really dropped standard too. Few years back I used to love coming to your restaurant that had great atmosphere, attentive staff and fabulous food. Need to do something to change

There are amazing choices on the menu, it took us a while to eliminate things and finally settle because we wanted everything.
The serves are very generous and we found we had ordered too much but they happily gave us a takeout container and we had our yummy left overs for lunch the next day.
The flavours in the food are wonderful, it was my first visit and I could taste a big difference from Indian food and Sri Lankan food.
Very happy to be planning a return trip soon, book for a Wednesday night they were full by 7.00

The food and the service was very good. however, the seating position was very bad. too close to other tables and there is no privacy.

Very difficult to talk freely due the close seating positions.

Simply wonderful. Every dish we had was unique in flavors. The wait staff were very helpful patient and friendly. The pork, deviled chicken, the king fish , egg plant list goes on was mouth watering. Maybe experiment a little more with desserts.

The food wasn’t good. We had to wait for a long time. The staff wasn’t cooperating that much. Even though we booked for 9 people the space was a bit tight. We all were sick the next day. The food was really bad.😔😔

We had the Sri Lankan menu which was completely authentic. Saffron rice, black pork curry, red prawn curry, dhal and bitter gourd salad. Pappadums. All superb. Wattalapam for dessert.

Amazing Food.
We've been looking for a place in Melbourne to enjoy a curry to rival those in the UK and have finally found one.
The sri lankan beef curry was a standout.
The table next to us had an amazing looking Crab Curry, which we will be back to order for ourselves very soon!

My one suggestion to others is to allow 10-15 minutes to find a parking space as it was incredibly busy in the precinct on a Friday evening. Believe me, it's worth it!

We were late due to some car issues but they didn't cancel our booking. The service was great and always have been. Highly recommend the crab curry and butter chicken. My mother also had some health concerns so she couldn't eat the food there, but because it was my brother's and dad's birthday, the restaurant was happy to sit her with us at the table and she was able to eat her food that had to be cooked from home cause of her health requirements. Thank you again for making this special occasion amazing

Just one concern , when I booked there was a section for "special request", I had made some requests because of a special occasion, but it was not considered, nor any of them even said anything about it. It was just ignored.

This local restaurant has absolutely delicious food and is great value - what a bonus! The chilli cheese naan is next level and the Sri Lankan beef curry was nearly as good as my Mum’s...and that’s no easy achievement! The hoppers are so fresh and the salt & pepper calamari left us wanting more! We can't wait to go back and try all the other dishes. Highly recommend.
