Small and cozy

The four tables are disposed adjacent to the living room of the house. It's nice that there are no gaps between home and the cafe. The family in charge is very friendly and the menu is affordable and tasty. Nice.

This is a very small cafe/restaurant. We looked at it in the morning as people were having breakfast. Those at the table near the open window said how good it was, so we made a booking for the evening. We were the only ones eating there for quite some time (somebody else came in as we had nearly finished our... More

Nice little family run cafe. Used to be very good (I wrote a review when first opened a couple years ago), but I think the new wave of tourists and the increasingly busy location on Peddlar Street has turned the cafe into catering towards tourist tastes instead of offering up authentic home-cooked Sri Lankan cuisine. I went here twice recently... More

We ate breakfast here on a few occasions as it was very good value for money and also lunch on one occasion. The breakfast which cost 550 roupies is delicious - the fruit platter is copiuos and you also get eggs, toast or rottie and tea or coffee. Its a small family run café with an open front right opposite... More

Once we managed to get a table in this little resto, the entire experience was great. We went for the chicken special curry, prawn special and an extra cuttlefish. It came with 5 accompanying veggie options. Hard pressed which was the best, the aubergine and couscous dishes were definite favourites. Only drawback, you can't have a beer: it's no alcohol...

Very friendly family-style restaurant that offers my mum's favourite curry throughout our 8-day trip around Sri Lanka. The restaurant is small but warm. The food is prepared on the ground with love. The price is also very fair.

A family-run restaurant offering freshly prepared food at very fair prices - a joy to dine there. Be warned, it's popular so you may have to wait and may even miss out on the excellent Sri Lankan rice and curry dinner if you leave it late in the evening.

My wife and I had a delightful breakfast at this family run, cozy, friendly place on the main commercial strip in the Fort. We can't vouch for the lunch and dinner fare, but we liked the menu and we'd guess the food was freshly prepared and presented as well as our breakfast.

Very frindly family driven cafe,with high quality and fully homemade food. You'll properly have to wait 15 minutes, because food is made from ground. Simply the best in town. We visited for eastern as well as western breakfast, several times. Lunch and dinner is same highquality.

The eastern breakfast is very good, we highly recommend the string hoppers with seeni sambol. That's why we came back in the evening to try the seafood. The food was delicious, but sadly the served portion was to small. Just remember to bring enough time for breakfast ;)
