Our guide took us here on our first day in Kandy and for £6 a head we were not disappointed
We were offered fresh fish from the chiller cooked to our liking but this was extra cost so settled on the buffet. Other diners were ordering from the al a carte menu but the food on the buffet was delicious if you like Sri Lankan food
We managed a seat on the balcony and had a thoroughly enjoyable lunch

We went to this restaurant after an advice of our guide. When we arrived the restaurant on the rooftop was almost empty. We ordered curry. We noticed a spider in the ceiling and hair in our french fries. The taste of the food was good but for the next 2 days my wife and I had diarrhea and we were sure it was from this restaurant since we didn't eat outside. This restaurant missed our vacation since we had to visit every bathroom in Sri Lanka instead of sight seeing this beautiful country.

First you have to take the elevators up as it is in --- "the rooftop". Before entry, you can see a sign with "TripAdvisor" framed to their wall next to their sign. Upon entry, you can see the large dining facility FULL of diners. The buffet area is large with some fancy shaped pastries and bread. There is also fresh selection of seafood but it is not included in the regular buffet.

The regular buffet costs 1400 rupees but with the seafood, it is 1800 rupees. There is a wide selection of fruits, entrees, pastry, bread and desserts. The selection is a combination of western dishes and Sri Lankan curries and other cuisines.

If it is shady, choose to sit outside to enjoy the magnificent view. That, our group did though that day it was not breezy and I sweated. Ugh!

Staff is very attentive and quick. Overall, a good dining experience though a bit on the higher price compared to other buffets with comparable choices that we had been.

We went to this place for lunch on 15th nov as our choice was Srilankan food. This was a huge place where most of the big tourist groups were taking lunch bufftet. When we reached around 1:30 pm, the place was almost full with more than 100 tourists taking food. We could not find a table on the terrace and we could only get a table inside. The lunch buffet menu did not include a vegetarian soup ! The manager was kind enough to provide us a soup which was freshly made. The live counters were not making any hoppers or any Srilankan dishes! They were churning out pastas! Very limited selection of vegetarian dishes and we were disappointed with the selection. The taste was very average.

great selection, great taste, good choice, speedy service, efficient staff, helping chef & great diversity of people on a single roof top is something to enjoy. Choose the terrace if the shade permits to enjoy the cool breeze while having a good view of the city.
