Gemi Uyana – Budget Eating in Colombo with Vegan Options

Gemi Uyana is a budget eatery serving breakfast and lunch. Its customer base is mainly professionals in nearby buildings.

The name Gemi Uyana is pronounced GA-MEY UYANA which means “village kitchen.”

We popped in to have breakfast as it was advertised for $1.00 (175 Rupees) We went to check out what you can get for that price. It was a breakfast buffet and the food was freshly made in clay pots.

The majority of the food was vegan-friendly but it is necessary to confirm with the staff before you serve yourself.

The process was quick and efficient and what you get for the price was phenomenal. Most people walk in, eat food and leave very quickly as you would expect from the target crowd.
