After late night partying at Unawatuna, when hunger strikes....this is the place to be. Lovely and scrumptious food with perfect flavours for the Asian taste palettes. Must try! Service is excellent.

A nice Roti shop which is cheap as chips. Nice staff and cosy. Rotis are crispy here. We would recommend and we will be coming back :-)

This place is great if you are looking for an Sri Lankan version of a French crepe with savoury and sweet options. I got a chicken, egg and cheese Roti which was quite good (tho I did bite into a shell which was unpleasant) Despite that one point, food was good, fast and quick.

Visited several times - the roti & lassi just so good! Great little & cheap 'hole in the wall' with a funky charming vibe & super friendly owner. Do yourself a favour....

Small and casual little shop. Good food, good prices. We loved the Shakshuka for breakfast. He even showed us how to cook it. Kind owner that even feeds the blind dog that hand out around his shop.

Feel the real Shri-Lanka here. The place is really simple, but the roti are really good and tasty. Veg, with chicken or sweet banana and pineapple with chocolate or honey! Recommend. Rather cheap, comparing to other places in Unawatuna

Came here for breakfast most days whilst in Unawatuna. Freshly cooked rotti that is very reasonably priced and tasty! Would recommend if on a budget.

We had the tomato & cheese Roti and the Roti with Banana. We had a lot of Rotis during our journey through Sri Lanka but this was the best one we had. Roman & Laura Ulm / Germany #FitRelax

I didn't know what Shakshuka was before tonight. Well it's eggs cooked in a tomato sauce and it was delicious. It tasted so fresh and Mediterranean which was so wonderful after so many months of curry. 2 eggs in tomato sauce served with a big plate of roti was 480 Rs I think

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.
