Delicious! We loved eating here and the whole experience. All the curries were divine - we would recommend it 100%.

If you love a bit of spice and lot of flavour and beautiful fresh food then check out Sue Inn! The only sitting for the evening is at 1930 sharp. On offer is about 10 stunning vegetarian dishes and condiments and also one exquisite Sri Lankan chicken curry. We loved every mouthful and my top three picks would have to... More

We visited here twice for food (after we misjudged that other places would be open on Deepavali!) - and thought that their wide selection of Sri Lankan curries were delicious. You should definitely try to aubergine dish! There are lovely views across Kandy from the roof-top restuarant. The owners (Fiez? and Sue) made us very welcome and even played a... More

We arrived at Sharon Inn just after 8pm after having trouble finding somewhere to eat. The google maps location was slightly off as it's a bit further up the same road as listed. The dinner service had completed, but they agreed to take us in and reheat the selection of food for us. There were a wide variety of Sri... More

We ate here twice while visiting Kandy and the curry was amazing! It was by far the best food we had in Kandy (admittedly not much competition) but also the best curry we had after visiting Ella, Tissa, Mirissa, Galle and Colombo. The location was great with a beautiful view of the city at night time and the owners were... More

We had a great dinner last night. The hotel and restaurant was very clean and the owners very friendly always having a little chat with everyone explaining all about the different types of food! The owner is a gentlemen from sri lanka and his otherhalf is from germany.. come here and have a dinner (buffet), you will enjoy it!

Really nice view but felt the food was a little average. Service from staff was very good. Note that restaurant is up 6 flights of stairs roughly so not for people with any difficulties.

We came here for dinner as the reviews seemed good and there is a lack of good restaurants in Kandy. It's certainly a great location with excellent views of the city at night. The staff are welcoming and we managed to get a beer (there seemed to be a bit of a shortage in Kandy), but mysteriously we were offered... More

The evening started with a walk up the hill from our hotel.Then up the stairs ,they seem to go on forever to the roof top.The view is stunning.The meal that night was served as a buffet about 12 dishes.As I understand it a traditional Sri Lankan meal of 90% vegetables and only one chicken dish.All were lightly spiced with no...

Came here 3 years ago with family. Brought my mum here on return trip to Kandy. She loved it! Food so nice and plentiful. We were craving vegetables after lots of carb focused meals on our travels. Aubergine a hit, had seconds of the dhal and the beetroot was inventive. Still a pricey meal (a bowl of rice and 4... More
