We ordere a banana roti with honey and it was delicious! We tried to find more sweet roti's during our trip but was impossible so thank... More

I popped in here for lunch one day. I opted for the katthu, which was deliciously cheesy. It was served cheerfully as well. It was definitely worth stopping into.

Ate here once, and the Roti was really good! The roti could improve with a bit more filling, but overall a great little place that I would happily recommend to anyone.

We had roti here twice. The first time we wanted to take the roti home. No problem. We asked the owner whether he could also serve us to beer (to take away). He gave us his last two beers. The roti were very nice, salty or sweet. We went a second time and again loved the atmosphere and the taste... More

Simply put. Roti's were the only things we ever had here. But we had them multiple times over my 3 weeks of visiting. Olives, garlic, tomatoes, cheese, mushrooms... etc. If its not on their list, they'll make it! Perfect to grab as a snack while you walk up and down beach road... or on your way to have a drink!...

We were looking for cheap options to eat, and we went to this place. We had plain rotties, really expensive compared to other places in Sri Lanka, and really not that great (thin and small). The rotties were coming with shakshuka, which is, in this place, basically a clear soup of tomatoes, onions and garlic, with 2 cooked eggs. We... More

This little shop has a great roti menu and quick friendly service. Prices are ridiculously cheap - two rotis and two mugs of tea arrived within five minutes and cost 3-4 USD. They also do a good range of fresh juices.

Roti was so good here we had savoury and sweet. Can't recommend enough! As a bonus they were watching an awesome bollywood/zombie movie while we were there.

We do not normally do this but I am afraid we came back 3 lunchtimes out of our 4. When travelling we always try to vary our dining options but this place was simply brilliant. The fried rice, roti, wraps were delicious as were the milkshakes/lassi etc. Staff always smiling and super friendly. Food is prepared and cooked in front... More

è un ristorantino davvero minuscolo (ha solo 4-5 tavoli) in cui si mangiano specialità locali: i rotti. viene recensito dalla lonely planet a pag. 140. si trova sulla strada principale di unawatuna ma non ricordo il nome della via. secondo me andrebbe incluso su tripadvisor perchè si mangia benissimo e il posto è molto caratteristico. vera cucina singalese.
