Good food but nothing very special. Very central, right on The main Street. Not The cheapest you can get but totally reasonable. We arranged a cab to arugam bay via their cab sevice and that was both cheap (for hiring a cab ofcourse) and very comfortable with AC, new car and a very nice driver!

After climbing Ella rock we thought we’d treat ourselves to a juice and my wife was told to try coconut pancakes while over here so we ordered that to share.

The coconut pancakes were really good and the pineapple lassi I had and the papaya and pineapple juice my wife had were great.

The staff told us that they had only just opened in February. They were really friendly and made us feel at home.

I can’t tell you what dinner is like here but for what we had it was great.

Stayed at Ella two nights and came here twice for dinner. Try their curry chicken with rice (comes along with side dishes). Owner is a lovely guy. Ambience is very warm and cozy. Menu pricing is reasonable. **Pardon my low quality pics**

Very nice staff en delicious kotthu!! The prices are very good too:) it’s a new restaurant, that’s why it doesn’t have many reviews yet. Definitely recommend to eat here!
