Sri Lankan curry, served real red hot, but also milder for those of more sensitive palates. The staff were super friendly and the 5th floor wide web now view over Nishi Dori makes a window table seat a must. Will definitely be back to burn my mouth again!


One of Fukuoka's best lunch spots! The curry is delicious and always hits the spot. My coworkers and I come at least once or twice a week. The staff are friendly and the decor is comfortable. It's on the 5th floor and you can see a good view from the large windows. The seating space is not huge, but they can accommodate large parties if you make a reservation in advance.


Wonderful Sri Lankan curry spot. A small place but the window seats have a nice view of the main shopping district. The curries are extremely good and a bit more distinctive than an average Indian restaurant. Very spicy (you have been warned). Other menu items such as the diablo chicken and the cricket ball are very tasty as well.
