The Kandyan, Besant Nagar

After finishing some work in Besant Nagar, myself and wifey wanted to have lunch and we decided to have something simple and not very elaborate. As we drove along, suddenly remembered Y Cook and decided to have simple Sri Lankan food. As we entered, realized that Y Cook is now renamed to ‘The Kandyan’.

From the road, you can hardly make out that there is a restaurant functioning here. No prominent name boards, no indication of a restaurant, while the CCD lounge is the only happening place in the whole building. This place is located right on top of it, on the first floor. There is car parking inside, right behind the building.
We decided to eat only Sri Lankan specialities though the menu had Indian food too. I did see quite a few of them order North Indian and South Indian food here, left me wondering why one would choose Indian food at a speciality Sri Lankan restaurant. Well, we ordered Red Rice Idiyappam (10 pcs), White Puttu, Pol Sambol, Chicken Curry (Half portion), Egg Thokku, and Devilled Chicken. Most of these I’ve tasted during my last visit when this place was Y Cook, so not elaborating.
We loved the food, no complaints at all! We paid a little over five hundred rupees for a nice meal.
