Visit well-oiled with English-speaking guide, tasting of spices on "foot", manufacturing at the former "true curry", free massage (with a small room), presentation and test "House products" then the shop... Huge price for Sri Lanka, but it remains good memories. Each to see on a budget...

  • Loved the tour and all the products but especially the vanilla. It is out of this world good and my regret was not buying more. It is very strong so only need half of what you would use in recipes.
  • Very friendly tour around an exhibition garden - showcasing the different spices and the plants they come from. Make no mistake: this is all an elaborate sales pitch, albeit an interesting one. It all ends back to the shop where you get to buy anything you liked at very affordable prices
  • Good spices local made spices
  • Located across the street from the hotel's restaurant is pretty high quality. And display the food easy to understand.
