The Ceylon Café at the Woden Bus Interchange is another local undiscovered Sri Lankan gem offering authentic Sri Lankan dishes at bargain prices. It’s another great Canberra spot to explore this lesser known cuisine.
Currently offering curries ready to go and Koththu Roti and Marsala Dosa made to order, this small eatery is planning to launch an extensive menu in the third week of January 2015.
Serves are very generous and two plates of mixed curries is just right for 4 people and an unbelievable price of $5 each.
Priyanka is charming and very happy to chat about Sri Lankan food. It’s fun and rewarding to support this homely enterprise.
The décor is pleasant, but basic and it pays to sit away from the door as the bus interchange can seem awfully close otherwise.
