We were are party of 17 and had dinner here on the roof top. The food was delicious! The service was good and because the food was made to order some of the dishes were slow to come out. No problem.

We enjoyed a really lovely evening at the Kandyan Arts Restaurant. The staff were very welcoming, the food was some of the best we have enjoyed in Sri Lanka (very reasonably priced). The fact there was the option of shisha afterwards was a bonus and a good end to a great evening. Many thanks to all of the staff.

On our excursion from down south to Colombo , we stopped in Kandy at the "Hotel Kandyan Arts Residency" to have lunch. We went into a great surprise. After a pleasant and overall tasty meal, we ordered "Crepes Suzette" from the menu, thinking it is anything but the real dish. To our surprise, the Restaurant Manager Mr. Chaminda Yapa Bandara...

We ordered crab and prawn curry and both were super yummy. Spicy, but exactly the way we like it. Whenever we come back to Kandy, we know... More
