Stopped here on our way through Ella for a quick refreshment. Nice little spot to sit and watch around. Not sure about food becuase we didn't have any. Good place to stop by and have a small walk..

This is an ok little place on the Main Street - although it is one of the only places not to offer wifi which is a shame. They do an ok pot of local tea although they serve it pre brewed in a pot without leaves so we were not able to let it steep as long as we would... More

Stopped here on our way through Ella for a quick cup of tea. Nice little spot to sit and watch the world go by and the young guy that served us was very nice. Not sure about the food - tbh I was massively unimpressed with the grubby toilet and kitchen which put me off. Reminded me of backpacking in... More

One of the freindly bars and restaurants on the Ella main street. The owner is freindly and can also arrange you scooter hire to explore the places around Ella

Came here for bread and hoppers with dhal and sambal before heading out for a walk up little Adam's Peak. Was a nice start to the day. Good dhal and tasty sambal. And the tea warms you up in the morning while you watch the world go by!Worth a visit when in Ella.

I went here not expecting to get the best curry and rice Ive had in Sri Lanka but thats what happened. Not only did it consist of like 100 different dishes (well, may be 6) but all were so tasty and authentic. Great service too and in the evening you can play Karam too (traditional Indian game).

We tried alot of the restaurants in Ella and the Tarntino ranked somewhere in the middle. It was uncrowded which is always a bad sign and the food was just OK and a little expensive. We didnt bother to go back twice since there are alot of better options, most of them are on the other side of the street.

We ordered rice and curry, and it was obvious the rice was a day old, and cold. The curries were bland even though we asked for "Sri Lankan spicy"--why didn't they believe us? surely we know what we want. On the menu was "lemu rice", which for 300 extra rupees was supposed to be one better on the plain old... More
