As the name suggests, it is indeed a small family run restaurant and is so small that it could be easily overlooked. This is yet another place to savour some excellent homestyle Sri Lankan cooking and fresh juices at affordable prices. They also offer fusion dishes such as deep fried prawns dusted in coconut shavings. Prawns are undoubtedly the restaurant's strong point and some customers even order several different preparations of prawns. The owner often goes to great lengths to make customers feel comfortable and if you cannot decide on what you want, the owner is more than happy to recommend a dish. The restaurant has about eight tables so it is best to get there early or make a reservation in order to avoid disappointment.
