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.

Good food, nice view, clean, good service, large portions, good price. We have a picky eater and they made a soup to order with her specifications. Good for families, groups and singles. Toilet facilities adequate and reasonably clean. Recommended

Well , as a Traveler !! I think we need to exchange information , so hat we can enjoy our travel , with less bad experiences and disappointment ,

being the second time at honeypot, I found the place improving and it looked like that they are learning from their experiences ,

as we enjoyed our meal with them last year , we decided to visit honeypot again , this time they even had rooms for rent, and as we liked the view of the river , we decided to stay a night at HONEYPOT ,

The room was clean and comfortable ,

The food was typical SRI LANKAN , which tasted like homemade ,if you're a non SRI LANKAN, it's best you try HONEYPOT Rice and Curry, because this is the real taste of SRI LANKAN food

hope my short review be use to all of you who visits KANDY SRI LANKA ,

At HONEYPOT just ask for what you want and they will try to get it for you , at a cost sometimes , ha ha haa

after visiting the war cemetery and the botanical gardens we arrived here for lunch. Enjoyed mild spicy rice and curries with chicken. The food arrived promptly which is a change for srilanka as everything is very slow. The staff here were attentive and friendly. Bathrooms clean and the atmosphere was fantastic with a lovely view of the mountans and overlooking the river. the simple unasuming deco and light music was and personl touch seemd interesting too.

Our driver Kumara took us here on route from the Botanical Gardens to the war cemetery and the curry and rice was delicious. It cost us 850 lkr each - better value than the Botanical Gardens in my view.
