Ambal Vegetarian Restaurant - Edit

We were driving all thru the day from Sigiriya towards Yalla, and did not find decent vegetarian food enroute and the sight of Ambal Vegetarian Hotel made allof us hungry even more and believe me the Plain Dosa roast was so delicious, we thoroughly enjoyed with chutney and sambar typically south indian style. Inspite of their closing time, they did serve us to everyone's satisfaction.

Spoke to the owner, who migrated to Sri Lanka from Trichy a good half a century ago.

I shall recommend the place to every traveller who surely would enjoy the food there.

Local Sri Lankan Eatery - Edit

Title says it all. Local, cheap eatery offering Dosa, String Hopper, Paratha etc etc. There's dal soup and samba on the tables to pour over whatever you order. Pretty much vegan except for the ghee or cheese dosas. They cook with coconut oil.

Pros: town centre, cheap

Sri Lankan Vegetarian - Edit

This restaurant is located at the main road & very easy to find. But no idea why they name it as "hotel". In fact it's a restaurant. I saw few restaurants too but with the name of "hotel".
The food here are purely Indian style with heavy spice and herbs using. Food such as Prata, Dosai, Chapati, Vade, Daal etc. No noodle are served but rice upon request.
A lot of people and the shop is small and narrow. Price is inexpensive and food is delicious.

Dosa, dosa & samosa )) - Edit

We were happy to found this place on our trip through Sri Lanka. This eatery is egg-less, but has some dairy meals. By the way it is 90% vegan. Be aware of ghee - it is cow's milk butter. Typical south indian meals are in the exact recipes. Masala dosa (crispy rice pancake with mixed spicy vegetables inside), perrota (soft rice&wheat pancake) and others rice meals are surrounding with 3-4 currys (mixed vegetable, dhal (peas), soy meat & coconut). Really inexpensive - 5$ for 4 persons. Place is very simple. Many locals & backpackers.
