Dining
 

The cook would be glad to cook whatever you might want to have, the choice here is yours to either be on pension basis or bring your own provisions. The food comes without the additives in these parts of Sri Lanka, where the cooks love to show their prowess in whatever they cook rather than get outside help to do it.
