Food that feels like coming home: With a Sri Lankan chef in the kitchen, this family-run restaurant offers casual comfort food that brings a bit of Colombo to the Klang Valley.

Sri Lankan offerings

The menu evolves throughout the day, from breakfast to lunch to tea and dinnertime, but if you’re here in the afternoon, try the thick, terrifically textured puttus and the tender, fresh-tasting idiyappams, partnered with distinctly spiced dal, rich curries (we like the juicy squid, as well as the deep, dark chicken) and vegetarian-friendly condiments (we love the robust fried bitter gourd) in set meals that mostly clock in somewhere between RM13.90 to RM18.90. Skip the pol roti though (too stodgy and chewy) and save space instead for the egg appams, served warm with a fluffy, santan-luxuriant centre surrounded by thin, crisp edges.

Desserts and coffee

Desserts boast a mom-baked feel, with the green velvet cake and a dense traditional butter cake among the attractions, with sukku malli ginger-coriander hot coffee easily the ideal accompaniment.
