New Sri Lankan on west 33

Jayask | Feb 20, 2003 12:17 PM

So...I walked up 3 flights of rickety stairs above Jack Dempsey's looking for Luck Sevana...a new Sri Lankan and Indian restaurant.

I had fish curry (must have been mackerel), white rice, lentils, and chopped greenbeans w/cocnut. I don't know anything about Srilankan food...so I can't vouch for it but the food was interesting. I had wanted to get one of their veggie dishes...but he won't have them till monday. The nan was premade...possibly packaged. Too bad. Don't go this week...its too disorganized. Monday he (Roja) said there would be a new chef and that they would start serving buffet lunches. The lunch was $5, and the nan $1.50. I think the beffet will be $6 or so....but am not sure.

Oh, and they use oil instead of ghee. :)

I'm wondering what you guys think of the place.

36 w33, between 5th and bway. They have free delivery.
