Ate here one evening. Fairly basic facilities. Some of the of the quick eats food are on display, or just try something from the menu. We chose the cheapest [£1.50] because we weren't that hungry and ended up with a massive plate of delicious Vegetable Kutti Roti.

Located on Nuwara Eliya's main street, it's a good eatery at absolutely decent prices. If you have already spent a few days in Sri Lanka ( as we had) you'll have no difficulty adjusting to the local style; it's SL at its usual. And you'll certainly smile at paying the check !

We were truly delighted when we saw the prices at the restaurant - some of the absolute lowest we have seen in Sri Lanka, and with no additional service charge. The chocolate milkshake and pineapple juice were both very enjoyable, but the chicken burger and beef burger were really not very good. The meat was burned, and had a weird... More

Very cheap curry and rice lunch, not amazing but ok and they keep filling up your plate until you tell the. To stop. Short eats are pretty good as well but quite salty.

We ate there twice so no complaints from us. The place is very clean and simple, the food was generous and flavoursome. It is central, easy and fast. The menu has a good variety of Sri Lankan food ( from rice and curry to short eats) as well as western food. The devilled chicken was particularly nice, and the fried... More
