Just go there... The food is extremely tasty. I had a Ghee Masala Dosa that was just perfectly cooked. Try the Kottu and other special dishes from Sri Lanka they are just perfect.You don't want to miss it!!!

Note: The restaurant on google map is one the other side of the temple. The taff was friendly and explained the menu. The food was good but too oily. I ordered the mango special dosa.

First of all: the street on the map is wrong! it's on the other side of the temple. The price was great, the staff nice & the taste of the food was good - but it was so fatty! I've got stomach cramps afterwards... So tomorrow we will definitively try another restaurant. The price is not worth the pain ;)

You sit at a shared table outside under the fans and eat these crazy cone shaped crisp rice pancakes using your fingers, scooping up Dahl and Veges (there's a sink and soap to wash your hands) and it doesn't get much more authentic than that! Great place to eat in Jaffna. Cheap cheerful and laid back.
