Authentic Sri Lankan Food

As said in the title, this is mostly Sri Lankan food, NOT Indian food. As such it is slightly similar and does have a couple Indian dishes, but mostly Sri Lankan cuisine. Their dosas (lentil crepes filled with curries) are amazing, as is nearly everything else that is vegetarian on their menu.
David is a great host, though the rest of the staff either know the menu well but don't speak English well, or are young and speak English well but don't understand the menu. They are as helpful as they can be though and try hard.
If you're looking for an authentic Sri Lankan meal I would suggest the dosas. I'm vegetarian so I haven't tried all of them, but my conservative white grandparents even loved the lamb dosas, and my Sri Lankan fiance said the crab dosa was the best he's had. For appetizers I would suggest the vadais, and idli if they are available. Both are meatless.
The $15 Sunday buffet is well worth the money as it has a big selection including vegetarian dishes.
We absolutely love this restaurant, they have the best dosas outside of Vancouver. We are actually so in love with it we are having our wedding reception there this year.
Highly recommended.

It was ok.

Went to eat at the restaurant one friday night and the place was completely dead. Half of the restaurant was lit up the other half was in darkness. It was extremely cold however we still thought we would give it a try. We ordered fried battered fish which was nice and meat potatoe dumplings which were ok. For mains we got the Lamb Karah which was pretty nice and the butter chicken. The butter chicken was not nice at all I think the chef over did it with the tomatoes. It should have been named tomato chicken, Im sure ketchup was put in there. The naans were soft and the daal was tastey. The waitress could not speak much English which did not help as some dishes need explaining but she could not explain this. The waitress was not friendly. Probably wont return here.
