My boyfriend & I stayed in Colombo for our final night of our Sri Lankan holiday and we were really keen to finish with a good Sri Lankan meal. We decided to head to Nuga Gama after reading some reviews. We were allowed to go for a quick look at the food before deciding that we'd go ahead for the buffet. There was a Jaffna Festival going on making the restaurant really fun & lively. I think it cost 2500 LKR (around £12) and it was so worth it! There were maybe 15-20 different curries to choose from, lots of sides, rice, roti and delicious egg hoppers! We were completely stuffed after 3 visits to the buffet but it was some of the best Sri Lankan food we had in our 10 day holiday. The staff were really friendly, especially Praby, who looked after us at our table. Thanks for a great evening!

They had a wide variety of dishes vegetarian and non vegetarian cooked in Jaffna style. The sweets were mostly made of Palmyrah. There was a cultural show during the whole time. They had products from Jaffna made of Palmyrah for sale.The food festival was excellent. This restaurant serve Srilankan food in traditional manner.

Fantastic local food for less than LKR 3000. The restaurant is located in the garden of the hotel with outside seating, autenthic fitting. There is an excellent choice of local food in buffet style served in old style pots. If you like the spicy food, it is absolutely recommended, it was one of our best culinary trip ever.

The restaurant has a rustic feel to it as the tables are set in sand under some trees.

Was lucky to visit the place during the Jaffna Food Festival. They had local palmyrah arrack and an amazing buffet spread of dishes from Jaffna. There was so much variety that one could not try everything.

The crab curry was good and so was the fried fish and the mutton starters. The egg hoppers were really good.

There was entertainment with local dances from the region. Also small stalls selling local crafts from the region.

Service was very good.

Great place to try Sri Lankan food.
