A great find! The hosts were great... the food was better. Loved having our food cooked right in front of us according to our tastes (adults and children), using all fresh ingredients. Lentil & potato soup was our favourite. Kids loved the Oreo milkshakes!

Had a delicious kottu here- freshly cooked and packed with veg and chicken. Even had a dessert as they looked so tempting. The chef was accommodating and friendly. Would definitely have revisited if I had the time

Visited the restaurant twice during our stay in Mount Lavinia and both times the food was absolutely excellent. Very tasty food, beautiful milkshakes and fantastic service from Kanchi himself all comes at a cheap price and I would definitely recommend a visit.

Looking for a small restaurant for some quick lunch we found Kanchi‘s. The menu is small, but food was great. Service is friendly and we surely go there again.

We pre-ordered lobster. The lobster was being prepared in front of our eyes and was cut at our table. The taste was very good! We definitely recommend it. Also it was the cheapest lobster we could find during our 4,5 weeks stay in Sri Lanka!...More
