Amazing Vegan Buffet! - Edit

For 2000 LKR you get an extraordinary vegan buffet with dishes from many different countries. The dessert table is to die for. You can eat inside or out by the pool with beautiful views of the ocean. You have use of both the pool and the private beach included in the price. I live In Mount Lavinia and come on poya days every chance I get. I've never needed to make a reservation.

It just keep getting better every week. They make their own salad dressings even and everything is locally sourced and organic where possible. Bookings essential!! 2000Rs (about $20)

Pros: Its ALL vegan, You get to use the pool and beach, There's such a variety of food

Cons: There's no cons, its rad.
