Indo Ceylon Cafe.

Indo Ceylon Cafe is a nice saivar kade near the Kollupitiya junction. Their dosa is fluffy and tasty, and their sambol is dynamite. It’s a pretty good place to stop by for a quick bite between work hours. Dosa King upstairs is air conditioned and runs under the same management, though they serve a different menu at a different price point.

The Food

When we walked in and before we ordered, we got a plate of different kinds of vada with some dynamite coconut chutney (which is like pol sambol’s hot cousin). If you’re a chilli fan like me and you drop by here, just pick a main like vada, dosa or string hoppers and ask for loads of this sambol to go with it.

Then of course, we had to ask for the dosa, this being the kingdom of the Dosa King and all. We didn’t expect anything that different from the usual (Saraswathie Lodge, New Saraswati), but the dosa here is very fluffy and soft. So if you like your dosa like that (I did, not a fan of the hard oily ones), then this is a good place to try it out.

Everything was as per usual slathered in unlimited amounts of sambar.

We finished it off with a perfect hot, sweet glass of frothing milk. They’ve also got 90s favourites like Horlicks and Nestomalt if you’d rather that.

Service & Ambience

The place is like a lot of other saivar kades – plastic chairs and tables in rows. It’s very clean, and the service was great as it often is in small shops. You see the hustle of the Kollupitiya junction on the other end of this view.


You can buy sweets and Tamil digests at the counter

Indo Ceylon Cafe is a pretty neat place to stop by for South Indian food in a clean environment with fast service. And we’re grateful for the big portions and the small prices (just Rs. 250 for all that vada and dosa).
