Ate at Sharon Inn just tonight. Full on the delicious and generous banquet of curry, enjoyed overlooking beautiful Kandy from the fifth floor rooftop. The view is divine and food lovely!

We were staying at Sharon Inn so the dinner made sense. It was delicious and so much choice. Vegetarians, vegans and meat eaters would be pleased. Very homely freshly cooked food.

We really enjoy nice view and polite staff who served the meal. We tasted all of the curry, vegetables, roti and we can say that was so delicious. We can recommend this place, because it’s romantics and nice experience with Sri Lenca! Funny is that...More
