A certain F&B offering in the little town of Ambepussa is a moniker after the Sinhala word for ‘restaurant’: ‘Awanhala’…

The Menu

Stemming from the prestigious Sri Lankan restaurant chain of ‘Awanhala’, this eatery in Ambepussa offers a selection of snacks, main dishes and sweets. Sri Lankan hot favourites, such as Vadai (Lentil Fritters), Fish Buns and Sausage Buns are full of warm, yummy-in-your-tummy feeling. Thala Bola (Sesame Balls) and Helapa (a leaf-wrapped sweetmeat made with finger millet, rice flour and treacle) delightfully pair with warm Ceylon Tea.

Freshly-made Bread treats are served alongside comforting Soups. Exotic, condiment-piqued curries laze amid Red Rice while fragrant Chop Suey crowns Steamed White Rice. Herb-roasted Potato, Chicken and Stir-fried Veggies deliciously pair with main relishes.

The Experience

Nestled in the little town of Ambepussa, between Colombo and Kandy, the ‘Awanhala’ makes a cosy stopover for those heading to or from the quaint hill capital. Good old Sri Lankan hospitality is combined with spacious, pleasantly-appointed interiors - creating a mood for a fun and flavourful meal.
