The quality of food is good. For Dinner Hoppers and Koththu are served with Chicken Curry and gravy. Staff serve quickly and are helpful. A most favored stop on the way to Kandy.

While planning our trip we were advised to stop here and good that we did. Since we're from the middle eat these guys serve the tea according to my liking. It was nice a fresh. There is a variety of breakfast buffet also, but we were already full so we didnt need that but i guess its a doable option.

The restaurant is clean and the food is safe to eat. Compared to similar restaurants in the area the food is over priced. The staff are indifferent and the service is poor.

They do not offer super separately for tea and we need to consume what they offer. When I inquired the response has... More
