Lovely place with really tasty food. Everything came out fresh and really enjoyed the bits recommended by the owner. Ended up having dinner here quite a few nights. Would recommend

We were looking for traditional the traditional rice and curry and came across South Ceylon and it did not disappoint. It's run out of the house of a local lady with her lovely twins crawling around, who makes everything fresh to order, so be prepared to wait a little while. We were used to the waiting in Sri Lanka so... More

After being referred to this Restaurant from an Australian friend we thought we would give it a try. On arrival we were told how quiet business was and perused the menu. After careful selection the waiter or owner advised that there was no avacodo available which was present in both of our selected dishes. Funny though as we had just... More

We went here based on TA reviews and because I'm a vegetarian. This may have been the slowest service that we experienced so far out of our three week stay in Sri Lanka with just average food.

Went there for dinner and were served by the boss, who was very friendly and gave us competent advice. Liked the Lassies, the Enchiladas and the Stuffed Aubergine. Good and simple vegetarian home cooking with an eclectic international menu. Some local classics like Plain Dosa are quite overpriced, but the bill came in easily within the local average of this...

I seemed to turn veggy whilst in sri lanka but this is not a bad thing, the food was amazing all over. Went here with a vegetarian friend as she had been here 2 years prior. Highly recommended even if you are not a veggy.
