Food amazing, basic place.

The food was great and very cheap - it was the first time we tried Kottu and it was very spicy. You have to be assertive to get served. The place was very hot and the toilets were not great.

This place is Very unhygienic and Dirty. Don't ever expect Clean table, glasses or clean Toilets. Even the waiters are also dirty. But this is Ordinary sri lankan Restaurant. Foods are tasty and very cheap. Cleanliness of the foods are also very doubtful. The restaurant only targets locals who wants to eat cheap foods. Their most popular item is "Kottu"... More

We are a couple from the UK/Canada, and they hissed at us as we walked in. The waiters wouldn't serve us until we approached the manager. The manager would serve us himself but no one else would. We don't know what the reasons were. But it was the only time we encountered an experience of this kind in Sri Lanka.

Ok I'll start by saying this isn't a pretty place. If it wasn't in lonely planet I'd never have set foot in there and probably not have noticed it. It's a very local place and while I'm sure they have a flow of tourists from the lonely planet reviews they mainly cater for the residents of kandy. That basically means... More

The table was sticky despite cleaning and half drank glasses shared the table with us. After ordering the food, the waiter kept hovering around us and after paying the bill, he asked for a big tip. We did not want to tip as the service was bad but he gave us a snort. In the end we left the loose... More

ENG: We waited for 45 minutes to be served when all the other tables had already been served, even those who arrived after us. Some people walked away, and we were going too when food arrived. We asked for a soda and they said the didn't have it, even though we saw some on other tables. Then we asked for... More

This place looks from the outside not really nice and attractive but the food was delicious. One of the best we had in Sri Lanka and it's really cheap. We ate both of our nights in Kandy in this place. Must visit!

The food ( Kotthu) was good and it was nice to eat together with the locals. The place was a bit unhygienic, you loose your appetite when you visit the toilet and see them preparing the food. Unfortunately I also found a big dark hair in my Kotthu..

Very difficult to decide in favor or against this restaurant from reading the reviews on tripadvisor. After decided to see for our selves and were truely disappointed. Tables were extremely sticky and dirty, service was ok but not very exciting and the starters were cold and probably already prepared in the morning so quite hard by dinner time, main course...
