We ate here twice, once it was great and the food was delicious, the second time was not good at all, the table was filthy and the food was not very nice - sharp shards of chicken bone in the meal, and I had an extremely upset stomach the following day.

Incredible value £ 3.00 for two and it didn't make us ill. Service from the highly eccentric waiter and sole menu and magically disappearing plates will be the stuff of anecdotes to come. Very filling and the best dahl ever! Further entertainment was provided by the acrobatic cockcroaches at my left elbow running arou d the partition between the outside... More

The short eats here were the best we had in Sri Lanka and ridiculously cheap. We found it hard to find good places to eat in Kandy, so this was a great discovery. It is old school and certainly not a glamorous looking place whick makes it even more authentic. Dont miss it!

Busy and a little hot inside, but well worth it as the food is really nice. Well worth a visit. Highly recommend the chicken!

Lots of people go in and out and the restaurant seems constantly busy. That's why we entered for some "take away" food. The place isn't spotless, it would need some woman's care;) so don't expect any romantic dinners here.The food however was good (no food poisoning after), maybe not excellent, but good. They have nice mango lassis. The restaurant with... More

This was the first place we felt we were considered like local people. They gave us the pot to clean our hands and tap water to drink. We really enjoyed our lunch. I had some egg and cheese kottu (very good) and my fried took some short eats and fried rice and was happy. The workers are friendly and helpful.

We went here because of all of the reviews and the recommendation in lonely planet... The place is filthy and the waiters do not even speak to you.. This didn't put us off as we have been 'roughing' it for the last 3 weeks here. We ordered the vege Kottu and the cheese and egg stuffed naan. Was very tasty... More

I have eaten several times in the upstairs restuarant & it is not only for european people in fact during season time it is so busy sometimes you cannot get a seat. They serve a variety of foods briyani, kottu roti and even macaroni which I really like with beef and cheese. Ok admitably it may not look the cleanest... More

Place is not clean, Waiters not clean, the floor was littered with pieces of paper. This place is not swept for ages. Lack of respect customers.

Don't be put off by the slightly grimy look of the place, it's clean and the staff is friendly. Based on the large number of local clientele, the place is a bit of an institution in the neighborhood. We had the Kabul Naan (very similar to murtabak in Southeast Asia) plus Cheese Kottu and Chicken Paratha Fry, all of which... More
