I didn't know what Shakshuka was before tonight. Well it's eggs cooked in a tomato sauce and it was delicious. It tasted so fresh and Mediterranean which was so wonderful after so many months of curry. 2 eggs in tomato sauce served with a big plate of roti was 480 Rs I think

Ordered chicken and cheese roti, egg and cheese roti, milk shake and a lime juice. Both the roti's were overpriced compared to other local restaurants (not in the strip but outside). The milkshake was just milk not a milk shake. Only plus point is the variety of roti they make.

We had a quick lunch there and fresh juice. All very nice and tasty. Portions are not huge, but definitely a value for money. Recommended!

This little place has great Reap and Rotti - but it's not 'fast food'. You can wait for take away on the road or sit down inside (if you get a table). Either way, the food will be fresh and the staff are nice. The people complaining about this little place are at the wrong place - and should try... More

We went there several times while staying in Unawatuna. We loved the rotis and juices. Great staff and friendly people. Great for breakfast, lunch and when you just want a little snack. Try it 😊

After seeing a long queue here yesterday on the way to our hotel, we went to get some late lunch at 3pm. Despite there being just one other person in the line, we waited for about 25 mins for our order. We got 2 rotis and a chicken wrap that came with chips. The rotis were crispy, thin and delicious....

The rotis there are really good and the atmosphere is great. I would highly recommend the chicken kotthu too, it was fantastic. Only problems are that there isn't a lot of seating, but they do have takeaway, and when I ordered, I ended up having to wait a very long time as they forgot about my order. This only happened...

The roti was fine, and very cheap. The staff friendly and helpful. It's good for a quick lunch on the beach.

Description
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.
