Elephant Walk

Six of us had a family lunch at the Elephant Walk today. After over 40 years in UK, this is the first time I felt that I was eating freshly cooked, really tasty Sri Lankan food outside Sri Lanka! The service was excellent too - a very pleasent young lady served us and we were very well looked after.

Went there because of a recommendation at a dinner/dance last Saturday but the last review I read on this site was unjustifiably scathing of the service. This didn't put me off and I am pleased that I ignored someone who didn't know what they were stating on a public site!

There are two things constructive that need to be said: the place needs a bit more atmosphere - perhaps, get away from the cafe` image and maybe, a little help and explanation for non Sri Lankans about what's on offer on the menu. I knew exactly what I wanted but many may not and will miss out on the vadais, dosai and the gothamba rotis!

The rest of the family enjoyed the meal very much and it was such good value for money.
