The company was great but the food just so so. I really didn't get Sri Lankan and it felt more like California food with an Indian spice thrown in here and there. No dish really stood out even the famous hopper which was more like a breakfast dish of egg in a crepe bowl. The dishes I did enjoy the most was the tea semifreddo, cauliflower, potatoes, and pork belly. Yum!

Well said, Justyna. The portions were also small so I left hungry (training for our Ichi dinner!)

I enjoyed the cauliflower and kale dishes, but do recall being disappointed on the meat dishes. Cocktails were good and I like their space, tho. There are a number of new very average restaurants opening lately (skip Sparrow in the Haight!). Where is the next SBP or Rich Table??
I kinda felt insulted going to this resturant coming from a south asian background. Ther dont eat kale around there. Nor do they eat sturgan. The strawberry short cake you wont find it anywhere in srilanka.
I plan to write a detailed yelp review. giving it a star for ambience and service
Similar to Campton Place and All Spice - both are "indian" but barely so. These places are playing to the Cali dinner, but we want more authenticity.
