I cannot confirm if the food tastes authentic as I don't have Sri Lanka food often, but I really enjoyed the food. We had the buffet which included up to 12 dishes and sides plus desserts. Buffet cost $25 per person. The service was on point and the Atmosphere was nice, decor was great and accommodating. The restaurant was clean.
