I recently visited this restaurant as recommended by the hotel we were staying at down the road. Unfortunately the only nice thing was the view which was amazing. We arrived just before sunset so was perfect which is why I have given 2 stars. Me and my husband were vegetarian and the options were very limited. The noodles were too... More

Food was terrible and gave us old fried chicken instead of grilled chicken TWICE! After an hour my girlfriend and I were having tummy problems.. Don't go there.

This was recommended by our tutuk driver who I'm sure got a spin off. The worst food ever. The only nice thing about it is the view. Far too expensive. Highly recommend you don't go there.

Food is pretty much average. The service needs to be improved a lot!. Has got a nice view though. Best to go for dinner to see how beautiful Kandy town is.

A driver took us here on our first night and, although the staff were friendly and the food was ok, we definitely regret it. This place is incredibly expensive for what it is - you're paying western prices and upwards. The view of the city is fantastic, you can't deny that, but considering have far it is from the centre...

Worst food I ever had Except the food, every other things are good in this restaurant. Nice location – you can see the whole Kandy town from sky level. Friendly staff service. Parking is not bad, but there isn’t enough space for too many cars. I ordered 4 soups (Tom Yam Sea Food Soup & Sea food soup with noodles)... More

The food and scenery are pretty good. The prices are also reasonable. The service is a little slow, but is one of the best I've ever encountered. The staff is really good. The vibes are also great, perfect for a family meal or to meet up with (a) friend/s or even a date. I've been for both lunch and dinner... More

Picturesque but the restaurant is terrible. It took absolute ages to place the order, get the food we ordered and the food that arrived was totally not worth the wait and definitely not worth the ridiculous price

The view from the restaurant was very nice, the staff was serviceminded and that' s all! The food was not good! The steak looks like minced meat! The only good thing with the good was the wine!
