Best Sri Lankan (Kotthu Roti) & Indian food stall in Melbourne, Queen Victoria – Drums Café


Drums Café was opened in 1996, located at the Queen Victoria Market in the heart of Melbourne, and provides Sri Lankan and Indian food. Over the past two decades we have been exposing Sri Lankan food to Australian’s and tourists from around the world, making Kothu Roti and Devilled chicken for everyone to discover and enjoy. During the past year we have been involved in many street food markets and festivals including the International Street Food Festival at the Melbourne Showgrounds as well as the Summer and Winter Wednesday Night Markets at the Queen Victoria Market. We also have a newly opened stall at the Dandenong Market where you can try our freshly made Kothu Roti all year round.

This Winter Night Market we have introduced for the first time a Sambal curry pouch, with freshly cut okra, kang kong, chilli with prawn or chicken, steam grilled in a foil pouch. This new concept has been very well received by a variety of customers, you can find this on our Facebook Page. Our long term goal is to bring Sri Lankan food into mainstream Australia’s multicultural society.
