Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Perfect place to have lunch, friendly staff and delicious food. These people are aware of the requirements for tourists as they give you the option to have the spices on the side to spice it at your own convenience. Maybe next time open the bottles...of the softdrinks at the table.More

Awesome! Had the chicken and cheese kottu roti, and it was absolutely delicious. My only regret is that I wasn’t in Ella for a longer time— I would have gone back for more every night

Great food and great prices. Portion sizes are pretty big so you could probably share a dish - I would recommend sharing a main and getting a desert as the chocolate and banana pancake is amazing!

Nice place in the center of Ella. Best kottu rotti we had on our trip so far. Service is also really good, our waiter C.K. was really friendly and obliging. There was also really nice life music, would definitely recommend the place.

A friend recommended this place and I am so happy I went! I ordered the chicken kottu roti and cheesecake - both were delicious and also very cheap! The service was quick and my waiter (Madusha) was friendly and very prompt. There was live music...too which was cool - had a nice atmosphere. Highly recommend!More

Absolutely loved the roti and the kotthu roti here. Great prices too and the musician playing in 360 (on the night of the 12 October for the owners to be aware) was amazing he really made the evening!

We came here for dinner during our stay in Ella and had Kottu, Puri bhaji, and a traditional chicken and veg roll. The first time we tried Kottu and it was yummy, not too spicy like it usually is and so filling. The ambiance was...nice with live singing but maybe a tad bit loud for us over 40's! All in all a nice place to try out local food and not too badly priced either.More

We ordered a burger and it was delicious! Reasonable prices and we'll be back again for cocktails. Service was fast and friendly. Nice to sit high up above the street. We recommend 😁

Will start with a caveat that we sadly didn’t get to eat here. After signaling to the waiter, we waited 20 minutes for someone to take our order. We also approached the staff twice to try to get our order in, including someone who appeared...to be the manager, but they (politely) told us to go back to our seats, and mentioned that there was a “queue number system”. Funnily enough they were ok to serve other Sri Lankan’s/Indians and Caucasians who arrived after us and didn’t seem to be in a hurry.More

My parents & I ate dinner upstairs here and it was delicious! We had stuffed rotti & a huge seafood platter, all of which was very reasonably priced. There was a great atmosphere, it was packed but as it’s a large space, it wasn’t an...issue. A fantastic musician was playing live folk/rock classics, and everyone was enjoying the ambience. Would eat there again.More
