You enter in a canteen restaurant without atmosphere. The service is very bad, they are laughing at you. The food is really not good, you have pieces of bones in your beef chopsuey. I do not understand why it is recommended in tourist guides. ..

My son lives in Thailand so he fancied an indian curry. We checked on Trip Advisor and went to the one with the best comments - we went in, looked at the menu, had a beer and walked out. It was dark and dingy and unwelcoming. SO, we went back to the Devon Restaurant (also known as the Captains Table)... More

The waiter cleaned our table by wiping left-over food with a napkin and was pissed because we only ordered one curry to share for two. He made is feel unwelcome and urged us to pay while we were still eating. The curry was also dissapointing. Small portion, nothing compared to what we had in many other places.

Devon is my choice to dine whenever I visit Kandy. They have a good selection of menus for affordable prices and food is pretty good. A good place for a hurried lunch I'd say as the it is quite busy. Staff is also good, though one might complain about the lead time.

This was our first meal in Kandy and honestly, this place can be quite intimidating for that! A flurry of activity and people, you'll find yourself feeling a lil lost. But don't shy away from looking around all the counters and asking what everything is and also for an explanation for things on the menu. The staff is reasonably helpful... More

This restaurant seems to be full during lunch time, especially with Sri Lankan tourists. When we went there at 2 p.m., it was too late to have Sri lankan rice and curry, so they sent us to section where they served Chinese and Indian food. We had no other choice as it was a bit late for lunch. We had... More
