Been to upalis, walking down from cinnamon red for dinner, past the park. There is adequate parking. We were ushered into the road facing portion. There were menus of daily special and the regular menu. I ordered for a fish fry with rice, while my friend ordered for hoppers with mutton curry. Both were tasty, though i felt hungry even after my fish and rice. So i ordered for more hoppers and helped myself onto the mutton curry. Then i helped myself to the dessert, the rawalpanaca(pardon my spelling errors) which was delicious.. I will recommend this place to anyone, but my biggest disappointment was the absence of liquor on the menu which doesnt allow us to wind off enough!! Visited August 2015

Authentic Sri Lankan cuisine! Tried and tested. We had an amazing variety of cuisine. Right from appams to crab curry. The vegetarian dishes were more tasty than the non-vegetarian ones. That was really unexpected. To end it all we had the traditional tea. Which had tea and condensed milk. No need for a separate sweet dish. Good for a get together and with either family or friends. Didn't serve alcohol as the license was not renewed. Maybe the situation has changed. If you're in Sri Lanka, do visit for a authentic flare.

This is situated just passing Town hall opposite the Nelum Pokuna. Hoppers served only after 5.00PM please note. The hoppers were so crispy and nice. All the dishes came with the right accompaniments as well. The meat curries are slightly expensive but two people or if you stretch it a bit 3 can manage. The Amberall juice is a must try if you like the taste of the fruit. Quick service and quiet ambience. Worth another visit just for the hoppers!

Taste Sri Lankan food at a cheaper price. Went for lunch and set menu was there. But if you prefer fish/meat you have to order separately. Tasty with enough curries.
