“Good food..”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

good food. prawn crepe & the crab crepe are hits!
downside is since they don't accept credit/debit card payments you've got to carry cash with you.
price is reasonable and value for money.

Food is good but not exceptional. The biggest downside is they do not accept credit or debit cards. You have to carry cash to pay.

I have been to Cafe on the 5th to meet up with friends.
Outdoor seating is preferred and recommended to all.
Food menu is good and the taste is even better.
Efficient service and value for money.

“Nice Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2014

If you are looking for local value-for money food, this is the place.
Simple and spacious place.
We prefer to sit at outdoor as indoor is a bit warm.
The ice-lemon tea is excellent and only costs Rs120?
Will try the Kottu in my next visit.
