“My Sri Lankan colleague rates it as the closest thing he’s found to his mum’s cooking!” – Don Buddhika’s local restaurant has brought some unusually authentic cooking to this chichi Manchester ’burb.
The “clean, tasty flavours” of the cooking at this five-year-old Sri Lankan make it the “best restaurant of its kind for miles around”. For Colombo-born owner Don Buddhika it is a very personal project, celebrating his origins after a career spent in the Middle East and Manchester.
For “Sri Lankan food with clean, fresh flavours”, this Hale three-year-old (est 2017) can’t be beat; named after that country’s dramatic UNESCO site, it’s owned by industry veteran Don Buddhika, whose CV includes the Jumeirah Beach in Dubai and, more recently, Mughli in Knutsford.

For 32 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
