Sells a collection of novel short-eats made with soy, such as wades, and roti rolls and sandwiches filled with soy sausage. The biggest attraction are the vegan the generous soy soft-serve ice cream cones.The open-air counter high above the street is extremely popular with locals, though service is prompt. Also sells typical vegetable buns and rolls, and bulk soy products such tofu and tempeh can be purchased there. And exciting find for the dairy-free traveller. Trucks in Kandy also sell the so called "soy ice cream", in smaller portions, though the ice cream at the Soya Centre is the tastiest and has the best quality.

Not really up to the mark

Was expecting more from this place after reading about it, but the menu is a little limiting, and the ambiance was also nothing to write home about! Go only for a quick snack if you must in the middle of day.

This is a good place for snacks. Almost all their food is based on Soya and they taste really different to what you have experienced so far.

I have been visiting this place since childhood, awesome place to hangout with friends. The quality of the ice cream has remained the same over the years. A chocolate soya ice cream on a sunny day in Kandy is treat.

We had find memories of the ice cream here and eight years later it was just as good. Delicious. Light and refreshing with a great flavour. Different from any other.
