There were some bugs flying around the restaurant, but the masala dosas were tasty and cheap. It was nice to have south Indian food as an alternative to the standard Sri Lanka rice and curry. We'd go back.

Reasonable prices, large portions, delicious food! When we went it was busy with mostly locals and a few tourists - a good sign! Highly recommended!

This was a big surprise for us - very very tasty and cheap food. We can totally recommend if you dont insist on luxury interior. Finally a place where you can meet also SriLankan people not only tourist.

We tried the fried rice and the baji. These were very good. This place is an excellent solution of you want to eat quick or to take away. Welcomes both Sri Lankan and tourists and offers the same prices (which is not the case everywhere !)

It is a restaurant for vegetarians and even though they serve the food on a kind of prison style tray it tastes very good. It's just not a relaxed and nice ambience. As soon as you finish your meal, you get the bill and with that a friendly invitation to leave so the table is free again...

If you're looking for a quick and tasty vegetarian Indian meal then look no further, as you will get this here. However, be prepared to eat with your hands in a very basic restaurant setup. The staff are warm and welcoming and I'd recommend the masala dosai!

The restaurant doesn't look particularly cosy but is perfect for a fast lunch. Everything on the menu is vegetarian, very cheap and quickly prepared and it comes in good portions.

Food here are all Indian, and vegetarian friendly. Food is great, but the place is a little dirty and cozy. You can get very cheap but good food here with a good enough service.
