“A good-value array of Sri Lankan small plates” helps make for an “interesting” meal at this Sri Lankan street food operator: part of a south west England mini-chain, which has been in the City of dreaming spires for the last two years.

"There's an ERROR in your listing - is the cost of a meal really £89???? That's not what you say for Cheltenham, which says £34), and we just ate there for £31 each, including a bottle of wine, desserts and coffee. Look at the menu prices. Must be a mistake. On the basis of an enthusiastic review by Jay Rayner, we tried this already very popular place. It was ok and we'll go back, but the review (which was for their original Cheltenham restaurant) was a bit too enthusiastic. Ambience was fashionably grungy, which we didn't mind, and prices quite low (and would have been lower if we hadn't pointed out that our £20 bottle of wine had been left off the bill). One problem might be service. Very helpful and friendly when we arrived at 6pm and there were only one or two other tables occupied, less well organised towards the end of the meal when the place was almost full; the two tables either side of us were struggling to get someone to take their order, though when someone finally arrived they seemed to be good at advising on the food. It wasn't for lack of staff either, more like poor organisation. And part-way through our meal we ordered a roti, which never arrived (but at least it wasn't on the bill either). Food: Prices very reasonable. Egg hoppers very nice, though a bit more of the spicy filling would have been welcome. Malay pickles and brinjal dishes ok. Clay Pot fish very nice, lovely sweet-sour spicy sauce. Hot battered spicy cuttlefish rather disappointing, far too little of the spicy caramelised onion and the batter could have been from anywhere. Treacle hopper with coconut ice cream good, though the ice cream wasn't very coconutty. Vegan straciatella was good."
