Excellent and cheap food. It is better to have a meal without meat. Very nice staff. For the first time I was feeling little bit uncomfortable (as the only woman there), but I got used to.

Okay, so this place is not going to win any awards for service or decor. But the stuffed Kabul roti was incredible! In fact it was so good, we had it on both nights we stayed in Kandy. And we were still talking about it at the end of our trip! Definitely one of our food highlights whilst in SL.... More

We stopped in here for a delicious kotthu rotti after reading an entry in Lonely Planet recommending it. We were the only tourists there, which is unusual for Kandy and was fun for us. Our daytrip driver the next day indicated this place might not be the most sanitary eatery in town and that we might get sick, but we... More

Just the kind of place we were looking for on our trip.. Local food, local people, not too shabby, helpful waiters, great food.. Try the kotthu parathas but the Biryani isn't great.. Try everything else. The steak isn't what you'd think it is.. Stick to their snacks and their specialities.. About 50mts from the Kandy city center..

Food there tastes good for sure and it's pretty cheap but after few hours we were intoxicated and had serious problems. The owner of our guesthouse told us that other clients had the same problem, so having lunch there might be a risk...it's really a pity! Hope they'll improve the quality of the food and the cleannes of the restaurant.

Where did we read a recommendation of this place? Lonely Planet again? Anyway - we went there (it's very central and easy to find), sat upstairs, ordered food. Friendly waiter, a bit shy. Samosas came in first and were very good. Main course ordered (basic stuff like fried rice, fried noodles, biryiani, that's what the place is about) - essentially... More

Only thing that people may be put off is the cleanliness but this is Sri Lanka and the food was fantastic - Chicken Kottu all the way.

ASk for the Chicken Koththu or the Chicken Buriyani. Great food, not the trendiest, but tasty food, forget the shabby appearance and eat it out

We ate here since it is recommended in LP and had generalle good reviews on Tripadvisor. The place was full of locals and seemed to be a nice place for dinner. We ordered some food and waited a little while for it to arrive. During this time we noticed that the restaurant was not, lets say, the cleanest. (3 glasses... More
