Lovely taste of Sri Lanka Food is a very reasonable price and a good standard. Easy to order and know what your getting.

We ate here many times while in Kandy for 2 weeks. The food is really really inexpensive. Less than $1 for a Vegetarian Curry Set. Sri Lankan food is spicy and this is no exception. It is a popular place for tourists and locals alike. We found the service adequate and the workers kind. As I noted above, the photo... More

You get what you pay for: awful food that gave me and my girlfriend stomach aches. Hygiene and atmosphere aren't strong points of this restaurant. Never again!

The food we ate here was ok, but we have eaten much nicer in sri lanka. The potato curry was tasty but the fried rice dishes were quite bland. It was good considering little else was open near our hostel as we arrived in kandy quite late, but there are better places to eat in the city.

Found this in my kottu... complained but the staff did nothing. Shame as this place is recommended by a lot of people in Kandy.

You know your onto something when the locals are queuing up for takeaway. The juices are quality and all the little curries are around 150 rp. Order a few you won't break the bank.

Would recommend the smoothies though they're cheap and made with bottled water. Staff were a bit useless.... my chicken fried rice was served cold
