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

After late night partying at Unawatuna, when hunger strikes....this is the place to be. Lovely and scrumptious food with perfect flavours for the Asian taste palettes. Must try! Service is excellent.

A nice Roti shop which is cheap as chips. Nice staff and cosy. Rotis are crispy here. We would recommend and we will be coming back :-)

This place is great if you are looking for an Sri Lankan version of a French crepe with savoury and sweet options. I got a chicken, egg and cheese Roti which was quite good (tho I did bite into a shell which was unpleasant) Despite that one point, food was good, fast and quick.

Visited several times - the roti & lassi just so good! Great little & cheap 'hole in the wall' with a funky charming vibe & super friendly owner. Do yourself a favour....

Small and casual little shop. Good food, good prices. We loved the Shakshuka for breakfast. He even showed us how to cook it. Kind owner that even feeds the blind dog that hand out around his shop.

Thank Tania B

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.
