I love the Soya Centre. As an Aussie vegan expat living in Sri Lanka we make the trip to Kandy just for the ice-cream as the its only true soy ice-cream in the country. I also love the Chinese rolls, so tasty and delicious. We love that the Manager comes to chat to us. The only thing that could improve... More

My favourite food place in Kandy! Loved it as a child and love it even more now that I'm vegan. The soy ice cream is awesome!

It took my partner and I three tries to find this place because the map on google, trip advisor, and Happy Cow places it in a different spot. It's actually one block west and half a block north than where google maps places it. It's on kotugodelle veediya NOT Senanayake veediya. We had to ask three people. But after we... More

I first went to Soya Centre Kandy in 1991 when I started school, & although decades have passed, the taste & the quality of the ice cream is still the same & still amazing! The same people from back then still serve with a smile. They've expanded the premises a bit with a little more seating, & now the customers... More

Though the food is relatively tasty and cooked under somewhat hygienic conditions it does not warrant them to charge such high prices.. imagine paying Rs 60/- for a Chinese Roll...Rs160/- for a Rotti.. They are charging 5 Star Prices.. for apparently no reason... there is obviously no service as the food has to be bought over the counter.. you need... More

Hiranya C, Manager at Soya Centre, responded to this review

Thank you very much for your review. Our prices are generally aligned with our base product Soy, which we produce (milk etc) in house. This is also how we differentiate ourselves from other food providers. We are also completely vegan and use materials of high quality. We do believe our pricing is very reasonable, especially in comparison to paying Rs.350/-... More

I used to visit Kandy Soya centre frequently back in 1990's. If you love Soya, this is the place. You'd get a chance to try all sorts of soya food

Description
Sells a collection of novel short-eats made with soy, such as wades, and roti rolls and sandwiches filled with soy sausage. The biggest attraction are the vegan the generous soy soft-serve ice cream cones.The open-air counter high above the street is extremely popular with locals, though service is prompt. Also sells typical vegetable buns and rolls, and bulk soy products such tofu and tempeh can be purchased there. And exciting find for the dairy-free traveller. Trucks in Kandy also sell the so called "soy ice cream", in smaller portions, though the ice cream at the Soya Centre is the tastiest and has the best quality.
