Buth Amma.

Buth Kade, better known for the nickname given to its generation of owners ‘Buth Amma’, is an awesome hole-in-the-wall rice and curry place in Bamba. It’s actually somebody’s own home, and the restaurant has been run by the same family for 66 years.

The Food

Buth Amma’s food is just a big buffet. They serve rice, and the options of parippu, chicken curry, devilled chicken, fish curry, fried fish, cuttlefish and it goes on. A basic rice and curry would cost you Rs. 200 and at most you could only spend Rs. 400 here.

We asked for rice topped with everything they had. Look at this plate of awesomeness – it only cost me 300 bucks. The food is actually very tasty – soft, well cooked meat, great parippu and seasoning, very spicy. It’s as authentic as Sri Lankan food gets. The portion as you can see is huge so it’s about enough for two people or one very hungry guy who hasn’t eaten all day.

 Service & Ambience

There’s a little hand-painted green sign outside this little by-lane, that says ‘Buth Kade’ with the menu underneath. Without it you’d never know this was a restaurant, it’s just like walking into somebody’s house.

It’s a small, clean space with three table sets, and when we visited we didn’t see a fan, so it could get a little warm on an ordinary hot day.

Right there in the eating space, you’ll see photographs of the family owners, and children’s drawings pasted on the walls. Chandana runs the place right now, she told me her aachi used to do the same. You might see a little kid running around the tables with a water bottle around his neck, probably her kid.

Conclusion

We love Buth Amma’s (their new name Buth Kade is so generic, it’s hard to get used to). If you want to feel like you’re going to your aachi’s little house to have a big delicious plate of rice and curry, this is the place. The price is nominal and the food is kind of unlimited because when she was serving me food she said ‘madhinang kiyanna’ (‘let me know if it’s not enough’). So we have zero complaints about this one.
