Service: Smiling, very friendly and attentive
Equipment & Facilities: Old but clean overall. Basic washrooms (Japanese-style on first floor, Western style on second floor) but clean
Prices: very reasonable
Strong points: Authentic Indian and Sri Lankan Cuisines. Take-outs available. Asian beers.
Dahami Restaurant located in a back street away from busy Kitakaido Street is small.
But it serves authentic ethnic cuisines from India and Sri Lanka!
Their prices are very reasonable, especially the lunch sets and bento so popular with nearby office workers.
But even a full lunch is so reasonable!
My advice is to visit it at least in pairs, or better in group of four to be able to share and taste a great variety of dishes!
For all its simplicity the restaurant and its chef are being recognized by the local media!
Left: Second Chef, Mr. Herath Mudiyangelage Wasantha Kumara herath, “Wasantha Herath” for short!
Right: Firts Chef, Mr. Mahanamage Rukman Bandara Weerasingha, “Rukman Bandara” for short!
Traditional Sri Lankan fish and potato balls called “cutlets”!
It was my first visit with a good Sri Lankan friend, Mr. Lalith Prelis, and being three of us we were able to share quite a few scrumptious dishes!
The “cutlet” inside!
We ordered three types of curry in sauce!
Indian Chicken Curry!
Sri lankan Black Chicken Curry!
Sri Lankan Potato and Fish Curry!
Fiery Sri lankan pickles!
We also had some salad.
And ginger tea to wash it all down!
The above is only part of the lunch menu.
Lunch and dinner menus would take quite a few visits to exhaust!
Next time I will have one of those Asian Beers!
