“Nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 December 2013

I read the reviews and was waiting for amazing srilankan food, but that was nothing special. Just normal, not bad, but this food is more western like. I went there maybe more because my hotel was close.

If you had carefully read our revies you would see that not one review mentions anything about Sri Lankan food. Also on our front page we say Chinese and European food.
However given notice my chefs can make excellent Sri Lankan food but to needs time ro cook and need to know one day in advance.
Regards
Michael

“good but not a lot of competition”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 December 2013

Most other reviews have got it about right. Decent chinese food and a decent bar. All at reasonable tourist prices. Friendly service and good views. We were in Kandy for 3 nights and certainly didn't find anywhere else as good.
Michael's taste in music isn't mine but he played a nice mix of requests.

“Slightly chilled”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2013 via mobile

Having spent our day in the hassle and bustle of kandy city it was nice to slow the pace down and have some really good food with a good ambience. We were staying next door in thilanka hotel so it was convenient but would've made the trip regardless (so good we went back there on our second night). We'll worth a visit.

“Great chinese food and view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

This was a great find, wonderful view and great food. There's also a pool table for those interested. Remember a cardi as it can get chilly if you are sitting outside. The pork and garlic was our favourite dish!

“One of the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2013

It's not many good restaurants in Kandy, but this restaurant is definately one of them. A lot of nice things on the menue, among them a very good version of deviled chicken. Large portions and low prices.
The service is extremely good, and the view from the balcony magnificent.
