With Sri Lankan food riding a mini wave in Melbourne over the past few years, it has become harder to discern bona fide nana-style joints from among the group of slightly hipper, perhaps slightly less authentic eateries. The locals of Glenroy know, however, that they have a bastion of traditional, unadulterated and unornamented Sri Lankan food with Chef Lanka on Wheatsheaf Road. This place is where you can try the real deal, dished up in a humble but homely setting where your food always comes with a smile. Sri Lankan food has many characteristic traits distinct from other South Asian cuisine, and if you’re new to the genre we recommend Chef Lanka’s delicious jackfruit curry, of course accompanied by the staple wambatu moju eggplant pickle.
Felt like some tasty food and thought of this place. Truly good curries and all things Sri Lankan. The people are friendly and service is quick.
Come here for the food and friendly service. This restaurant knows what it does best and sticks to that. Fantastic Sri Lankan food makes me happy.
Really tasty and good value! My Sri Lankan friends enjoy the food here, so this proves the authentic taste. Friendly staff and quick service too.
