Good food and a nice place for vegetarians. Not all food are vegan and some may contain dairy. And they don't know the difference between vegetarian and vegan food, so better to clarify whether the food contains dairy or not, before placing an order.

The food is delicious but be very careful if you want vegan as most of the items have dairy.
They also didn't seem to understand the difference between vegetarian and vegan.

Pros: delicious , inexpensive
Cons: hard to figure out what was vegan

Eat like rhe locals in a super down to earth atmosphere. The peoplethere are very nice and accomodating and the food is great! Highly reccomended. We tried a bit of everything (a party of six kids) and everything was delicious. Freshly made dosai with coconut chutney and sambal with pumpkin. Sweet :-)

Pros: Almost entirely vegan, Staff are easy ti communicate with, Cheap + non-touristy

The food is fantastic and the staff are very kind and helpful. If you want an authentic experience with scrumptious Sri Lankan food while in Kandy then Balaji Dosai is a must!

the saviours of kandy

Posted on 04 / 04 / 2013

this is the only vegetarian restaurant in kandy (they have 5 branches!) and a real saviour for vegetarians like us. we ate here every day and it was always delicious.the snacks are fresh and cheap and the lunch packet is a good deal at 100rs,since you can ask for refills.
their sweets are really good for sri lankan standards.
the ulundu vade and susiyan are really tasty.
most dishes are vegan, only the special dosa is baked in butter.
friendly staff especially in the colombo street branch (they have more choice here and have all the sweets)

Pros: fresh and tasty, friendly staff, cheap
