Big selection of Chinese and local food specialities, where you can choose single items - in contrast to similar buffet places, which only offer fixed meals. We do not eat rice and could choose from several vegetable and meat/fish dishes. Staff and service extremely friendly.

A very decent restaurant. Commendable service and good choice of food. The prices too are very reasonable. Very clean and friendly atmosphere in the city centre.

I've been here at lunchtime and the curries were tasty but service slow. Recently went at about 7pm and it was the worst eating experience I've had in a long time. Food poor quality and not fresh. It seems that they were serving much better quality food to locals and assuming anyone else was a tourist who they'd never see... More

Not sure why this place is recommended. Maybe it's great around lunchtime but around 7pm it's not. The Devilled Chicken had as much taste as the worst Chinese takeaway back in the U.K. Along with lacking any taste the chicken was rock hard, as though it had been cooking since lunchtime. A Devilled Pork Biriyani fared no better. A huge... More

We Visited the Devon Restaurant in January 2017 on two occasions both times in the evening. The food was very good and the waiters advised us what to choose, nice atmosphere with a mix of locals and tourists eating there.

Went there around 3pm. Really really slow service. Ordered spicy chicken pasta and fried rice with devon special vegetable sambol, apple and mango juice. Waited the food almost for an hour. Pasta was tasteless and cold. Fried rice had the same horrible sauce (tasted like a tomato ketchup) as in chicken pasta. Vegetables were hard and really really tasteless. Juices... More

This restaurant was recommended to us but not sure why. Didn't rate it at all. The atmosphere in the restaurant was strange and not enjoyable, service slow and poor and food underwhelming. The naan bread was clearly store bought and frozen and didn't even come out hot. Neithe curry we oredered was any better than average. Any restaurant that specialises... More

This is way better than the outlet in nugegoda. Such a busy restaurant all the time so the service is not that much quick. But i do like the food here specially rice and curry. I have been to this place twice and one of my experiences was horrible. I had to wait so long to receive my meal and... More
