Found this restaurant after checking out the reviews on TripAdvisor and wasn't disappointed. The restaurant is set on the rooftop, giving wonderful views over the city. After a serving of soup the buffet opened at 8 o'clock sharp with a gorgeous selection of vegetarian curries. Chicken curry was served separately. On the way out we were entertained by a surprisingly... More

This restaurant is located on the rooftop of the hotel carrying the same name. It is off the Kandy lake but not easy to find. Importantly, its address directions on google maps, as per the day of this review, are wrong, so do make sure you phone them up to know the exact way to get there and also make... More

The variety of the buffet was amazing! Loved all the flavours, would definitely recommend. The owner is also super friendly, ask him to play you a Beatles song :)

Our first dinner in Kandy & Sri Lanka was at the Sharon Inn- great buffet in the family run guest house. Nice top floor open air deck seating.

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!
