Service from the cashier was rough as guts. From our waiter it was acceptable if not exactly warm and efficient. But you’re here for the food, and it’s the real deal. Give it a go, but don’t expect to be wowed by the service.

As the name suggests, they specialise in Dosas, walking distance to the Kandy temple, a good choice for vegetarians

This place feels like a Sri Lankan McDonalds. Don't expect luxury cuisine, but it is dirt cheap and the dosai (pancakes) with curry and sides are amazingly tasty.

I haven't had this type of food before so don't have a good benchmark, but I really enjoyed the quick meal we had here. We asked a waiter for recommendations as we didn't really know what we were ordering. We had three starters to share...More
