Hotel Rolex was easy to locate opposite the central markets. The place was spotlessly clean & the breakfast was very good, esp the cuttlefish curry & excellent value. Friendly staff

Authentic Indian/Sri Lankan food. My fried chicken curry was better than I've had other places. It seems that they know how to use spices compared to more famous and "tourist" places. It's more clean than most places. And half the price than famous and higher...rated restaurants. My only but is. They add sugar to the fruit juice.More

This place seems more welcoming for foreigners that other local shops in the area. The place is clean, the food looks tempting and the staff is very nice. And of course the prices are budget friendly. I had the vegetable kottu, which was very good,...although a little spicy (ask for no chili if you don't like that).More

For the price of a tuk tuk ride, a full rice and curry lunch that’s just fine. I liked it, good value.

Rolex hotel located at the hospital road, close to central bus stand of Jaffna. Most of the times this place is full of people due to it is located at a prime location. Food at a reasonable price. Ideal for take away, also dine in...available. They are open from about 5am. Busy days dinner solution is mostly from Rolex hotel, we generally go for string hoppers, pittu curries and coconut sambol. Cannot really complain about the food for that price. They have nice crispy chicken/ vegetable roles availableMore

Tried this place when we were on a trip to Jaffna. We had parata, string hoppers, and several curries including Jaffna's famous mutton. Nothing wrong to say about food. Waiters served us well despite the difficulties in our language gap. Must try place for meals...if you're in Jaffna.More

It was my second visit to this place and the food was really good for me. Well given the setup I wasn't expecting a god service but the food was okay, we were expecting just a normal dinner and we got good clean, delicious food...and we were happy customers. I hope they will improve their service so that it will be a place to visit for everyone visiting Jaffna.More
