Want to taste Indian food Kandy? Here's your place..! The service is pretty good and very fast too. I went several times here and as the name suggest, they are specialized in Dosai. My favourite is plain dosai.

As the name suggests, they specialise in Dosas, walking distance to the Kandy temple, a good choice for vegetarians

The dosa at the restauant was average not that great but the coffee is good. The location is near the centre of the city very near to the buddha temple. The service and prices was not great.

Visited a couple of times - lunch & dinner. Lunch of rice & 5 curries (170 Rps) was very good & excellent value. Service with a smile and a laugh. Convenient location near Tooth temple. Recommended.
