“Nothing South Indian....”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2014

This restaurant claims to be South Indian. Their preparations are nothing close to the real south Indian delicacies in spite of the names on the menu being the same. I'm not sure what their masala dosas and paper dosas are like but I asked for a plate of idili vada first and it was hard and old. As I could not eat that, I asked for a plain dosa and that was awful too except that it was hot and soft which helped in getting it swallowed.

“Enjoyed my vegetarian meal very much!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2014

In the center of Kandy, found the restaurant by coincidence. I am not a vegetarian but enjoyed my Masala Dosa very much, very tasty and very reasonably priced. Great that one can watch the meal being cooked!
