Cheap and tasty. Good samosas.

Cheap food, service could be a little more efficient, but the staff are friedly. Try the vegetable samosas- they are good!

They have Sri Lankan and chinese food selection. Sometimes takes lot of time to serve. Check your order before you leave. I ordered 10 chicken fried rice, 1 vege rice and 1 egg rice. And they delivered me vege rice and chicken rice correctly. but the egg fried rice had only an omelet with no rice.

Good for when you need a decent plate of food in the downtown area for a local price. However, the upstairs can get really smoky from the kitchen downstairs and some of the food items are much better than others. On that street with the bazar and the super K grocery store.

ENG: The koththu is really good. If you can, don't take a table upstairs because it smells like urine. But the toilet is clean, probably they have a problem with the pipes. ITA: Il koththu è molto buono. Se riuscite, non mangiate di sopra, c'è puzza di urina. Ma non viene dal bagno. Probabilmente hanno un problema con le tubature.

The food is not as good as some reviews. Specially the buns, pastries and cakes doesn't taste good. We opted for take away because place was full and the service was extremely slow.

Place is clean, food is good, service okay and prices are modest. Good value for money. And they serve Nescafe coffee from a machine that will even prepare capuccini and lattes. Perhaps not of the finest Italian quality, but certainly not bad either.

Busy little restaurant serving curries, roti, samosa etc. Also has coffee. I would recommend getting them to give you a plate with a selection of the various roti etc on offer - you pay for waht you eat
