We went to this place during a business visit to Kandy. Ambience, Time Taken to Serve and food taste were very good. Spacious, glazed outer partition gives Panasonic view if kandy city which relaxes your mind as well.

We dined here and also had the take away lunch menu, all in the space of a few days. The food was a bit better than average. Decent restaurant, with the cleanest toilets! Staff try hard.

Kandy offers quite some restaurants but this must be one of the more unique ones. Dodgy entry and a bit fake Chinese decorations do not really give the place a great appearance. Food however was good and the price was ok. If you are tired...More
