"TASTY BREAKFAST"

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... read 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

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.

The food here was tasty and nicely spicy. The staff were very helpful when we weren't sure what to choose. I recommend it.

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 !
