Great service, happy to help

Having been in Sri Lanka, for just over a week, and the only sugar in our diet has been a world popular brown caffeinated carbonated drink, as the local diet is not sugar focused, we really valued the simplicity of iced donuts and a peaceful sit down. The service was good. This is a sad confession... read more

Better than we expected! We were hungry and ordered two Kotu Rotis. It tasted wonderful and the cook waiting to make sure we enjoyed it! Nice owners :)

We were looking for "hopper" - a Sri Lankan style pancake in a market place and wandered into this place by accident. Salgado was a thriving local cafe with variety of choices for coffee, drinks, and sweets. Customers keep coming in but the air ventilation inside the cafe was bad. There was dense cooking smoke so we opted for a... More

Salgado is a restaurant chain and shares the same menu of hundreds of other "hotels" along the busy streets of every Sri Lankan city. We stopped off at the Main Street shop after touring around for the day. They serve the usual spicy Sri Lankan pastries and curried buns, as well as bread and tea and coffee etc. This facility...

Just what you need for a lunch break, this place does a huge turnover, all the locals eat there. It's not airconditioned, just opened to the street. Great & fresh.
