Went for dinner, no burgers, no patties, no fries as the other reviews claim! Just kottu and hopper that also cold. Don't understand why people have raved about it. Give it a miss!

This place is truly made for locals, serving perfectly spiced food, gargantuan portions and with excellent service. You can watch your kottu being expertly made infront of you, along with delicious hoppers and chicken gravy. Eat on the street and you'll be immersed in delicious Sri Lanka!
