I had just one lunch there - a thali. The curry were nice and not too heavy with a good flavour. Actually one lunch gave two of us a good light meal. The place was empty when we arrived but the waiter started the fans and it was pleasant.

I spent two month and a half in Sri Lanka and I tried maybe 50 different rice and curry. This one is the best I had. The lasi (pineapple) was also very good and the service was lovely.

Quick and pleasant service. Nice outdoor area with big ceiling fans.The masala dosa was tasty and fresh. Didn't compare to Dosa from the streets of Mysore, India( the home of good genuine dosa),but not a bad effort. Portions could be a little bigger. Plenty of fare for those on a budget.

Good fresh food, excellent service. Very cheap. High recommendation! The restaurant is clean and there is a good turn over of customers so even if busy you won't have to wait long.

We visited Jaffna for a 3 day stay and found it difficult to find good, clean places to eat. After reading the previous reviews, we went to Mangos on our first night and found the food pleasantly appealing. We ordered a dosa and a rice dish which my husband said tasted very authentic. Ended up visiting this restaurant two more... More

The food was good - just what we were looking for. Efficient service and the lime soda was better than what I've had in Colombo! Prices are cheap and portions are satisfying. Would definitely visit again :)

This restaurant serves variety of South Indian food. Good quality for reasonable price. Close to Kovil Nallur Kandaswamy. For the dinner, the kitchen starts at 17:30, before that you will get only drinks. We arrived at 5pm so had to wait some time. Mosquitoes here are really numerous and hungry, so take measures.

Ate here five times over three days. Very professional service, great South Indian food like dosas and idli. Enjoyed watching the dosa maker at his station. Nice environment for a meal.
