Description: Balaji Dosai is a unique, concept restaurant in the heart of Kandy, a beautiful heritage in the city of the Central region of Sri Lanka. Balaji Dosai is a Indian vegetarian restaurant. The restaurant is modern and trendy and serves up a single cuisine menu including some of the best dosa's in town as the name speaks for itself. What's more than a dish cooked right in front of you.

“Awesome Value”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

Great combination of great value and friendly local service makes this a terrific dining venue. I paid 100Rs for a vegetarian buffet meal. Great curries with about 4 different varieties with rice and pappadums for such a small price. The wait staff are friendly and courteous, even though they speak little to no English. Came back here on a few occasions and was always greeted with a smile.

“Best food in Kandy... by far”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

This restaurant is amazing. Don't even think not to eat here when in Kandy. If you want to try the best of Tamil and Sri Lankan food than this is the place to be. It's very popular with the locals and often full (but do wait a few minutes for a table), that is why the food is always fresh and warm. We ate here everyday twice and just couldn't get enough of delicious dosas and excellent sri lankan milk tea all prepared by local tamil people. During lunch time they serve also beside the dosas - rice and curry, that is also the best in the town. Don't forget to try the sweets - speciali susiam and kesari which are out of this world. Last but not least the prices are so low that you just won't belive it!
This is definitely the culinary experience that you will always remember. We travelled round the world for last 2 and half years and visit more than 40 countries and this place is on the top of our favored local restaurant list.
Keep up the good job we miss you guys a lot.
