I have to say this is my favourite Sri Lankan restaurant, as yet, in London. I visit whenever I miss Mum-cooked food.
Skip: the starters; the devilled dishes. The former sadly feels a bit pre-packaged as opposed to lovingly made, and both are somewhat lacking in texture and flavour
DEFINITELY GET: Kothru (vegetable); String Hoppers with Potato Hodi and Pol Sambol. The aubergine curry is AMAZING, followed by the dahl-and-spinach and the green beans. Meat wise, mutton curry is my fave (though it is easily a place where you can also be easily pleased with the vegetarian/vegan options.)
Possibly try: mango lassie. My friends said it was delish.
Best with Lion lager (not wine) and ask for a jug of tap water before beginning... this stuffs is spicy!
