“THE best kitchen in town”
Review of Roti Shop

Roti Shop
Ranked #30 of 97 Restaurants in Unawatuna
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: Asian
Description: è un ristorantino davvero minuscolo (ha solo 4-5 tavoli) in cui si mangiano specialità locali: i rotti. viene recensito dalla lonely planet a pag. 140. si trova sulla strada principale di unawatuna ma non ricordo il nome della via. secondo me andrebbe incluso su tripadvisor perchè si mangia benissimo e il posto è molto caratteristico. vera cucina singalese.

“THE best kitchen in town”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

This place is incredibly good at making rotis (filled fried thin bread). If you pass by Unawatuna on your way to something else or only have time to try one place out it should definitely be this one (unless you dislike roti that is). Everything they make is first class, even the drinks (for example a heavenly passion fruite juice) and given the super affordable prices this place is a must.

They don't have many seats but if it's full you can just take away, it will taste equally good.

ps. if you want an Indian, Carribean or more traditional Sri Lankan roti you will not get it here since these are more like crêpes, white, thin and crispy. yum!

“Amazing roti!”
Reviewed 5 February 2014

Fresh, tasty and cheesy! I got the one with onion, tomatoes and cheese and it was sooo good and really cheap. Great option for breakfast, a light lunch or dinner, or even a snack!

“Good taste of local”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

There are not many local foods choice around the beach. Pay a small amount of money u can try the local original. The price is not cheap for local people, but definitely a reasonable price for foreign and near the beach. We ordered 4 roti and fired rice for dinner, the plate is small.Taste like pizza.
Recommend: Mushroom olive cheese, milk shake
