Wadiya is the county's first Sri Lankan restaurant, one of a precious few in Southern California and even the United States. Its space is massive and elegant, with a removable mural on its wall that's the most colorful, bucolic image you'll see, a panorama of the coast painted in swirls and watercolors that's about 20 feet long. This is an apt metaphor for the island's stunning cuisine, one that's vaguely familiar to fans of Indian food, but with otherwordly flavors that draw from the former Ceylon's legendary trade-route reputation.
