We ordered a chicken Kottu, prata, and chicken curry to go with the prata.

Kottu was very tasty and something we hadn’t tried before. Serving was big so could feed two people with a couple of sides.

The prata was a let down. Cold, a little stale, and had a pretty tough texture. Curry was more herbal tasting than we’re used to but I put this down to it being a more local flavour than what we have had before.

Go for the Kottu but avoid the prata.

If you want local food at local prices this is your place. It’s nothing fancy, and kind of rough around the edges, but the food was genuinely delicious and half the price of anywhere else. Would happily eat here anytime - the breakfast was great!

My wife and i saw this place on Youtube before my visit to Kandy and i happened to pass by after a long day's hike. I decided to try the rice and curry which was very economical compared to some of the other meals on offer. I enjoyed the meal but after inquiring about the price of shakes i declined as they were more expensive than the meal. I would recommend a visit to the cafe as service was good and the food excellent. It is situated at the south end of the lake.

The restaurant is located close to the lake. It is very simple and does not have a special atmosphere.

But the most important thing in a restaurant are food and drinks. And these are extremely good. Not only from a tourist point of view as there are many locals ordering at the takeout service. The food is fresh, when you are late, some things might not be available.

The service is really nice, we were able to change our order on short notice, because we ordered too much.
