“Old fashioned Sri Lankan Chinese”
Reviewed 7 July 2013

A part of the Flower Drum chain and the food is quite similar with a typical Sri Lankan Chinese menu. Ordered pork in black bean sauce, stir fried mixed veggies and sweetcorn and crab meat soup and happy with all. The steamed rice could have used sticky rice instead of the dry type they used but no other complaints. The decor is a bit faded but it also has a strange old fashioned feel that is a reminder of Chinese restaurants in Sri Lanka from the 80's. A step back in time with familiar flavors, smells and decor. The service is efficient and friendly. A good value for money option in Kandy where decent restaurants are hard to come by.

When our family wants to dine out, the first name which comes to our mind is Flower Song.
We never miss to order "flower song special" rice always.

“Good value”
Reviewed 14 May 2013

You can share a small portion here and it's more than enough, for about 600 rupees. Chicken chop suey was yummy.

“Great clean food”
Reviewed 4 May 2013 via mobile

We were recommended to try here by our guesthouse host as she believed this to be very clean restaurant. Food was just that, service was great, very attentive and comfortable. If you want Chinese food while in Kandy(which we didn't really) this place is worth a visit.
