Authentic Sri Lankan food

If like me you were confused by the reviews then ask a trustworthy Kandy resident. Recommended for dinner and if you want proper local food go upstairs. Downstairs was full of westerners with an inspiring menu. Upstairs local menu and almost solely locals. We went 2 consecutive nights and had... read more

This restaurant is best in terms of location (close to Tooth Relic Temple), tasty food, affordability and maintenance of the quality while other places are dropping their status

The food has no spices what so ever. I couldn't feel a pinch of salt in the food. The menu is horrible and unorganized. Could do a lot better. Maybe they should focus more on cooking and customer service. Prices aren't reasonable either.

We came here on a recommendation and were really disappointed. Ordered kottu roti and it came out cold, it tasted old and it had no flavour at all. They must have known this so they plonked down a bottle of tomato sauce on the table to go with it! Worst kottu we had in Sri Lanka. They also have time... More

Average Chinese style food mainly. After speaking to the waiter we ordered devilled chicken with biryani rice and got some sort of Chinese style chilli chicken? Was disappointed as we asked for something Sri Lankan! 1200 rps for two. No alcohol, service pleasant enough and food was good value for money - just not a lot of Sri Lankan food... More
