The beautiful banana leaves of tropical Sri Lanka have been serving as dishes for some of the world's best street cuisine for centuries.  Whether it's kothu or curry you're looking for, it will be served to you delicious and hot right in a banana leaf.  As for silverware, you won't need that in Sri Lanka!  As a fine dining restaurant, we provide silverware of course, but in Sri Lanka we just eat with the five spoons on our right hand.

Went there for a birthday with about 8 people, we all got something different. One of the dishes was good, the other seven were over priced and bland. Our servers, yes two, we're both frantically running around and unattentive to our needs. Yes we were a pretty big group but one of our plates took an extra 30 min and it usually took 5 to 10 min to get anything else. I recommend The Thia House in lehi, Ganesh (Indian food) or Thia Village in AF not exactly the same but WAY better food and service!

I loved it! Everything was great and it's a cool environment. The food was amazing! It was a bit pricey but still worth it.

Magnificent! My parents and I came here on a recommendation from a dear friend. Everything was incredible. The atmosphere is unique in that the walls are stained wood with emerald green ceilings and chandelier. All the seats have a beautiful red fabric covering. Quite charming. The food was absolutely divine. We will most certainly come back again.

The service was quick and the food was delicious! I can't remember the name of the dish I had, but it was bursting with flavor! I will definitely go back.

We ate here after it first opened and we simply ADORED the place! The flavors were like a party in our mouths. We moved away and hadn't been back until this past weekend when we went for our anniversary. I noticed that the landscaping wasn't kept up like before, railings were in disrepair, etc., and wondered if what I was seeing on the outside might reflect changes on the inside as well. Unfortunately, that was exactly the case. We arrived at 6 pm. on Sat., and there was only one other couple dining. Hmmm. No one else came in until we were finishing up. The first time we ate there, it was packed. There were two servers who seemed cheerful and nice. It was obvious that they didn't have much to do, though. They sat at another table, propping their feet up on the bench. Our water glasses were empty but it took quite a long time for that to be noticed since they were just visiting away and in their own little world. The same happened when we'd finished and no one noticed. The food, though, was the biggest disappointment. I ordered a garlic shrimp sautee. It was served sizzling and looked good. However, one bite in and I realized I was eating FROZEN MIXED VEGETABLES. I could tell by the taste, texture, and cut of them. So obvious, and so disappointing. You might expect that at Denny's restaurant, but not at a decent Asian place like this, at the price of $14.99. My husband got a coconut curry and it was fine, nothing bad, nothing special. Before going, we had considered the idea of getting a gift certificate for someone else, but thankfully we waited until we'd eaten there to make the decision. It was a disappointment from start to finish and I would definitely not recommend the place anymore. Very unfortunate because it had been fabulous at one time.

I had never eaten there before. It was our waiter's first night and he tried really hard but he brought us our food and asked if we needed anything more. We had no utensils or plates. None of the dishes that were brought to us had serving spoons with them. I ordered the sizzling shrimp dish that was described as having a garlic lime sauce. I tasted neither. The dish came by itself, no rice and about a cup and a half total for 15.00. It had no flavor at all. The other stuff that we ordered was fine but nothing really stood out to me and for the prices they charge for their extremely small portions is crazy. What if I had just ordered the sizzling shrimp? No rice, nothing to go with it? Unless quality, quantity and pricing changes, I won't be going back.

Lovely atmosphere, excellent service from the owners of this family-owned restaurant. I soooo wanted it to be wonderful! But the food is just okay. We had the sweetheart sampler for two. 4 sauces, all quite bland. They provided a good chili sauce for add-able heat, which is really smart!, but the sauces needed more depth of flavor in their own. The beef was gristle and chewy -- the only thing I'd reject. The chicken was good, but not wow. The mango chutney was delicious, the only wow on the table. I really wanted wow. I only got ok fine. There was nothing stunning to bring us back. And we really wanted it to be.
