A good clean restaurant with attentive staff and a good choice of items on the menu. Booking may not be essential as they have a good number of tables and was fairly quiet on the night we went. Curried meals can be ordered to suit tastes but be careful, their interpretation of medium is far hotter than ours.

Really good, fresh seafood on a lakeside setting. We took the opportunity of paying a little extra to be taken on an atmospheric pontoon ride on the adjacent lake before our dinner. The lobster was delicious. The restaurant is a short tuk-tuk journey from the resort hotels on nearby Bentota Beach.

Malli's Seafood Restaurant

The most romantic place to wine and dine in Bentota.

Reviewed By anisha8188 - Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Malli's Seafood Restaurant is about a 5 min walk from Avani Bentota - the resort we were staying at. And I'm so so glad we managed to come here for a meal one evening.
The Terrace Seating overlooks the railway tracks. Beautiful restaurant, friendly service, and absolutely delicious food.
We couldn't get enough of their Thai Prawn Curry! The grilled fish was perfectly cooked and seasoned. Just everything was perfect.
This place should definitely be on your list if you're visiting Bentota

We had chicken kadai and mutton biryani, with nan and chapatis. Big portions, and both mains were delicious. Decent service and comfy booths for sitting and eating. Unfortunately the juice bar was off for the day, so on the water.
No alcohol.
No automatic service charge, which is a big positive.

Reviewed By Mani R - Dubai, United Arab Emirates

We had an early dinner here and the food was really good. I had the prawn curry and I must say that it was great. We also had the grilled prawns and fried calamari and these were also really good. The portions are really big and filling. The only bad thing was that the beer that they served wasn't that cold.
I think this is the best option for food on the beach.

Reviewed By Kat35 - Exeter, United Kingdom

This is a German owned restaurant and bakery, located on the Galle Road. It's very popular with locals and great for a cheap eat! The curry buffet looked good and costs 350lkr. We tried the chicken kotthu which was the same price (about £1.75) - medium spiced and delicious. I could not eat it all so they kindly did a lunch pack which I could takeaway. Visited again and tried the chicken schnitzel - again this was very good. The kiddies menu has perfect portion sizes for a light bite.

We went in to a lot of trouble locating Hilda’s - as it was highly recommended by other reviewers on TripAdvisor. Their phone did not work so locating the place was even more difficult. Indeed it’s a fantastically located beach shack. However their food was ordinary, and overpriced!
