Lovely place for a meal and to reflect on and overlook such a beautiful city. The food was very good and the service was friendly. Wish we had been there on a night when Sanga was in Kandy.

Loved this place. Enjoyed the Chinese food and the children enjoyed the break from Sri Lankan (burgers etc). Service was very good and the whole place had a super friendly vibe with a mix of back packers, couples and families. Highly recommendMore

We visited in the late afternoon so it was very quiet but I can imagine it packs out in the evenings. The fried rice was great and the service was quick and friendly. There are great views over the landscape.
