My family and I had a lovely meal at Sharon Inn. My parents are Sri Lankan and we all absolutely loved the food - best Sri Lankan food we had on our two week holiday. The aubergine and chicken curries were especially great. The lady who owns/runs the place was really friendly and helpful, especially with my mum who had... More

The buffet at the Sharon Inn was fantastic - a really wide selection of delicious curries in their roof top restaurant

I made a reservation for dinner via my hotel, the Mahaweli Reach. There were eleven of us plus our guide, and I had read some glowing reviews. We arrived at 730 pm, at the anointed hour, and were basically blockaded on the stairway leading to the rooftop dining room by the hostess who informed us that the guide, who was... More

I went to Sharon's Inn for the night buffet. Wow, that was really the best food I have eaten in Sri Lanka. There are about nine different types of curries, some of them very original (jackfruit, banana leaf) served with red rice, which is more nutritious. The aubergine curry is absolutely delightful. Sharon was there to explain the dishes. The... More

We went here as we were staying in the OZO hotel and it was a simple walk. We wanted to sample a true selection of Sri Lankan food and we were not disappointed. Its a quiet evening though, and don't expect a lavish wine selection or wild entertainment. BUT the food is really good, the service excellent. Be prepared to... More

Sharon Inn is a guesthouse, where you can eat rice and curry at 19.30. The quality of the food is completely worth the climb up to the rooftop, where your meal will be served (no elevator, so you have to be able to climb 4 floors up). Call before to make a reservation (081 220 1400).

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.
