This is a five star review for what the restaurant is, a brilliant local no thrills restaurant. The food is brilliant and the juice bar is even better! Would highly recommend to anyone in Kandy, much better than your standard tourist trap.

I had the egg rotti, which was good but not memorable. My husband and I shared that and the veggie pizza, which was good but not cooked long enough. Nice server.
