“good food and nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2014

we ate here twice during our stay in Kandy.
both times the food was lovely and the staff really helpful.
They had a James Last concert projected onto the wall which may sound off putting but actually gave a good, laid back atmosphere
they have a road side balcony which was only for drinks so eating was inside - in the AC!
I would recommend you give this place a try

“Great food, views, service and vibe!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

We ate here for dinner after debating where to head to in Kandy and this place is very recommendable especially if you like Chinese food or want a break from rice and curry. It is a bit away from the central area in Kandy, so get a tuk-tuk there. It is set on a hill, with great views.

The restaurant was clean and had a good vibe to it. Customers were mostly foreigners. Staff were friendly and attentive and the food was great with good portions. This place probably seems like a good place to head to after dinner for a few drinks as well with a bar and maybe perhaps a dancefloor thing going on.

Highly recommended!

“A good break from eating curry!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

Being a westerner travelling in Asia it is highly enjoyable to eat the local cuisine. However, for a break from rice and curry this venue provided us with some of the staples of a western restaurant/pub at reasonable prices. The atmosphere is fine and clientele are other foreigners. A place to take a break while in Kandy.

“Alas, No Beer on Full Moon Day”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

Nobody could tell me if it's a law or tradition but no beer was to be had in this pub. Keeping that in mind, the now restaurant was fine but not exceptional. Service seemed reluctant, as if they thought they were being blamed for the dearth of alcohol.
