Description: The Honeypot Restaurant & Guest House is an Eighty seater family Restaurant located 1.5Km from the Kandy town centre.(About 5-8 minutes from the central Town Clock Tower by TukTuk). It is a great place to enjoy a meal overlooking the river and mountain range and indeed away from the pollution and noise of the town centre, yet not far from all the sight seeing places and attractions of the historical City. We offer a child and family friendly atmosphere. We serve hot and cold food from authentic Srilankan curries to fish&chips,Seafood dishes,fried rice, noodles, snacks, sandwiches, Halal dishes and many more. We also serve a selection of fresh tropical fruit juices along with hot drinks too. All our dishes are prepared to a very high standard. Our Prices are very low, whilst the service we offer is like no other. We also provide a free WiFi service to all our guests. The Honeypot also has four Guest Rooms which are clean, simple and competitively priced. All rooms are en-suite with a/c and fans. All rooms have a private balcony overlooking the river. The Honeypot prides itself for its simple original building design & deco, constructed utilising local material.

One of a best place in kandy for local foods i tried. delicious. price also very reasonable, rather than eating from a normal hotel (muslim hotels) for a very very cheap price traumatic foods.

“Glorious setting and good food”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

If you feel the serenity of water, then this is the place for you. It sits above the river just outside Kandy and you can watch the fast flowing stream - and the kingfishers - while you eat.
The food is good and the service friendly and efficient.

Most of those eating here were tourists but experience suggests that this is often the case with places that can serve quickly at pretty much whatever hour and no matter what the size of the party.

Last but by no means least, the loos were clean and well supplied!
