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 33 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).
