We went for an evening meal with kids. Service was OK. Food was OK. We ordered Puri but it was very bad - they did not take it back & charged for it. Masala Dosa was decent. Milkshake was good.

I'm embarrassed to say we ate here three times during our three days in Kandy. It's just that good. The Masala Dosa is incredible and super filling for just 260 rupees! You have to eat here when you visit Kandy.
