    Solid competitor to sigiri. Great Sri Lankan food. I was surprised to find such an authentic restaurant near Penn station.

    One of the few authentic Sri Lankan restaurants in NYC. The mango lassi is amazing!

    $9.99 lunch buffet. Great change of pace from your standard fare. Coconut beets and lentil curry. Yum.

    The lamb lampri is a taste of heaven, served in a banana leaf. Also check out the kotthu.

    Amazing food, not expensive and great device. Their lunch buffet is pretty decent too ($9 or so per person).

    This restaurant is worth visiting if only for the oddball beverages, including a drink made from a fruit called wood apple. Read more

    Quality does not match the cost. The hoppers are decent but the curries lack spice or flavor of any kind. If you're looking for Sri Lankan, head to Sigiri.
