Went for dinner and was pretty disappointed. Not a very good menu and very expensive in comparison to other restaurants available in the area. However, it is a pull for westerners where they know they can charge over the odds. Our food has caused us...More

Great dinner with our teenagers. Food delicious but even better was the service. They really went out of their way to make us feel welcome and gave us a tour of their kitchens to meet the chefs. A very lovely evening!

At the terrace we were and it was a very good place to sit and relax and to have chilled beer with few snacks and quite reasonably priced.

Great pub. I always visit this place when ever I go to kandy. You could look at the main streets of kandy while zipping a glass of beer. They do serve nice food too. Bit pricy and if you don't like the main streets noises...More

I ended each night in Kandy with a drink on the balcony here. Cheap menu and great atmosphere on the balcony until late. Could use a better soundtrack. One night I sat in for a few hours reading a book and the playlist went through...More
