First Review by jose

Could've been good but they wouldn't let us in :( - Edit

The restaurant is very big and right next to the Hindu temple of the region. We took quite a long tuk tuk ride to get here and arrived at 8pm. We took our shoes off at the entrance and washed our hands ready. The restaurant was very busy and lots of people were still arriving (even after us).
The servers told us then that they had stopped serving food 30 minutes ago, despite food leaving the kitchen next to us and the opening hours on the wall said til 22:00...
They said they would not serve us and left us standing awkwardly in the middle of the restaurant.
We have been to many local restaurants whilst travelling and are usually meant to feel comfortable. However it felt like we were discriminated against in this instance just for being foreigners. It's disappointing because we have had a wonderful experience in Sri Lanka so far.
This review won't affect their business, but just a warning to other foreigners that this may happen to you.
