Had a wonderful breakfast with the family. The whole family enjoyed the food. Ordered Kara Dosai, Vegetable Biriyani, Paper Dosai, and many more items. It's value for money and looks very hygienic. The Masala Chai was an exceptional item and enjoyed the cinnamon taste very...much. Definitely will make it a point to visit, when we come to Kandy.More

I'm not even a dosa person and this place turned me around. The masala dosa is 🔥 Every time we come to Kandy, we eat here at least 2x It's not a fancy establishment in any means. It's always busy though.

Damnly wanted to have a veg meal option therefore went to Balaji restaurant to have my breakfast around 11am after finishing some of my tight schedules!! Ordered a plain dosa, vada & a lime juice! order was just came to my table just within 15...minutes! but they forgot the lime juice so i was supposed to remind the waiter for the juice! (they could double check the KOT before they serve the meals to customers) Dosa & vada was served with sambhar, coconut chutney & chickpea masala! I would say The meal was good but obviously not the best. Instead of masala they would've serve with some other chutney which will be a good accompaniment for the Dosa & Vada!! Lime Juice was good though! Cleanliness of the plates & the Glasses have to be improved!! Overall the experience was Good but obviously not the best!More

It was the most disappointing😩 experience .. They blew it on all and every aspect. The quality of the food was so mediocre; snd so was the array ... for A THALI MEAL. (An absolute disgrace to the concept of A Thali meal). Hygiene ......forget it😳 The WC was absolutely filthy & in addition the doors to it; ain’t lockable. BE AWARE. I do hope you Folks @ Balaji - DSSenanayake get your act together & remedy ‘ALL’ ... In line with ‘The Balaji Tradition’ of yore. I do wish you restorative success.More

We had a great experience here. Service was friendly and the food was really good. It’s a good spot if you’re looking to try out different curries. Beware, the service men will be looking for a tip!

The food was ok. But customer service is very bad. Waiters don’t respect and doesn’t give a customer satisfaction. I had wait in the billing line for about 15mins while the counter guy is on a call. After I ordered I called for one of...waiter but he doesn’t cared. Again I asked hot water from a waiter but he said bill for that. I said I already billed and he again said I don’t have your ur and tell bring water to the guy that will bring ur meal. I was so devastated and disappointed. Please respect your customer and make sure keep clean. Even not clean. And even there was a couple opposing us they had came there like about 20mins before us and they already billed and yet they had their meals when we was having our meal. Don’t do this to anyone. Customers are ur most valuable thing.More

Visited here for amazing dosas… I had the mushroom masala served with chick peas, lentil daal and coconut. Eat as the locals do with your fingers or if you ask they will give you a fork. This is a fast food outlet and very cheap...will definitely go again!More
