Sigiriya Restaurant pays homage to the iconic rocky outcrop of Sigiriya (Lion rock).
It is Sri Lanka’s single most dramatic sight, an imposing rock that rises with near vertical walls out of the green scrub jungle of the central plains. Sigiriya is perhaps the most memorable place to visit in the country and our restaurant seeks to celebrate the rich history of this special place by blending Indian and Buddhist traditions through fine food and warm hospitality. This is the Sri Lankan way, come and experience it through us.
Don Buddhika is the ex Manager of the World Famous Jumeirah Beach restaurant in Dubai.
With over 20 years’ experience in the restaurant industry and winner of numerous food and restaurant awards, Don is a Sri Lankan native who has built his career heading up successful restaurants across the globe.
As well as Managing the Jumeirah Beach restaurant in Dubai Don has over 15 years experience in the UK heading up restaurants within the Shea khan group and most recently he transformed Mughli in Knutsford making it a go-to destination for Cheshire food fans.
Don said: “I am delighted to open and offer the people of Hale and further afield an insight into the global Sri Lankan cuisine that my family know and love. Not only does this feel really personal to me, the fabulous interiors take inspiration from Sri Lankan roots with bendy pipework and a living moss wall”.

Our incredible curries come in many varieties of colours and flavours.

‘Rice and curry’ is a staple diet for the Sri Lankan people, but the word ‘curry’ is used to describe a multitude of dishes, which can include soups, meats, sea food, lentils, vegetables, sambols, mallums (sauted vegetables), phies (dry style vegetables) and achcharus (Pickle).
The basis for some of our delicious desserts include Curd, treacle, sweet meats, rice flour, palm treacle and jiggery accompanied by a variety of fruits. It is very easy to find several juicy sweetmeats like Kavum, kokis, Halape, Thalaguli and Wattalapam.
Sigiriya has been known since ancient times as a settlement for Buddhist monks.
It is a well-planned monastic complex that includes cave temples, bathing pools, lovely ponds and Asia’s oldest surviving landscaped gardens. Today, Sigiriya is famous for its frescoes paintings in the pocket of the rock. The “lion stairway”, the “mirror wall” and the “water gardens” are its other highlights. Sigiriya was declared as a world heritage site by UNESCO in 1982.
