Famed for its wada

It is really another one of those eateries that you find all over South Asia. The place was clean and they offer a variety of snacks. The best of the lot are their wadas. If you like Indian snack buy their soft and wonderful wadas. That is what we ate. I would recommend this place for their wadas... read more

The best donuts around. We had a selection of local and authentic bits and bobs. Would recommend going at lunch time rather than the evening as it can be sat there a while. No complaints when it's so cheap and cheerful.

We took an assort of filled rotis and fried stuff...they bring you a big plate and they will only charge you what you eat. Be careful, the vegetarian roti is quite spicy! Food is really good and really cheap

Good place for dining. They have Rice, Noodles, Dosei, Parata, String hoppers etc ( Not for dinner). Upstair is suitable for familly dining. Prices are reasonable. Clean resturant, takeaway is available. Portion sizes in rice is larger than usual so be careful.

We had a chance of having the breakfast at the DE SILVA- Nuwara eliya on April 17 2015. Tasty food. Wide selection for good price. Service was friendly but little bit in delay. The day we visited was very crowded and most of the service providers were on leave for new year vacation as we heard. Accessible! The restaurant is... More

We were keen for some western food and tried their burgers. They were a very decent size (my 11-year old twins shared one burger), very tasty and was served with french fries. As we were pleased with the quality and reasonable cost of the meals, we went back the next night, as well. Our waiter on the second night was... More

We stopped there by coincidence as we did not want to have dinner at the hotel. Decent food. Good roti and vegetarian curry and rice. Don't order beef as it is not very popular in Sri Lanka in general. Order the deviled prawns, quite good.

Had excellent roti and noodles, service was efficient and friendly. Cafeteria style but quite acceptable. Portions were generous and the prices good, on that basis certainly worth recommending.

This place s kinda slow and less responsive.. Headed here after a tiresome day. Took sometime before the waiter arrived... Got some fried beef , which I couldn't eat at all... Highly chewy... Terrible.. Got some chilli sauce .. Had it with noodles and walked out.. Money down the drains. When I informed the waiter, all that he could do... More
