“Poor service and terrrible taste”
Reviewed 3 September 2014

Poor service - they take a lot of time to deliver the order on a not-so busy day. No credit cards accepted.

Terrible taste - the usual roadside boutiques run by poor families offer a good tasty drink than here.

Expensive - prices are way too high and directly targeted at foreign tourists only, not on the quality of service or products available.

Only atmosphere feels fresh and good.

Would not recommend to anyone.

“Great food at great location..”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

I went to this place for lunch. Nice and clean place right in front of the Hakgala botanical garden. Great place to eat. They have variety of menus covering all kind of foods rice, Ham burger French fries etc. out side dining also available back of the restaurant.. If you are traveling from Nuwara Eliiya to Horton Plans ,Badulla or Hakgala botanical gardens this is the correct place to eat.

“Always visit when in Haggala”
Reviewed 13 April 2014 via mobile

I have been visiting Humbugs since I was a child & will always stop when visiting Haggala.
The view is of the hills with patna grass. Folklore says theses are the mountains Hanuman burnt when in Lanka on his mission to find Sita. Hence no trees grow there!!
The food is reasonable & tasty. We had home made pizza which was under baked that day, strawberry milk shakes, chips, waffles with strawberries & cream. Yum! Love the garden seating.
The condition of the washrooms could improve.

“Rancid cream”
Reviewed 13 March 2014

For more than 20 years, I have been passing their restaurant but the rough, crudely constructed and painted exterior wasn't inviting. But, last month, my sister wanted to have strawberries so we stepped in. She ordered a strawberry milkshake, which she said she enjoyed. I ordered strawberries and cream, which cost Rs. 250/. The strawberries were not ripe and the cream was rancid. To add insult to injury, we were billed a 10% service charge.
