It is a nice place to take a break during the drive between Colombo and Elephant orphanage, Kandy. The place itself looks historical with ample parking place. Food is good. Excellent service. Worth visiting.

Lunch was a fair spread but certain items were not sufficient. Still it was very tasty. The toilets were unclean and have not been refurbished for sometime. Ambience is average. Price slightly too expensive for the value.

Wherever I travel to Kandy, I make it a point to stopover here. Though buffet is a bit overpriced, the food is really good, especially the breakfast. When the place is crowded the service tends to be a bit slow and it is very difficult toget someone to take your order. Many people including myself stopover here out of habit.... More

Inv no B45041dated 02 oct 2014. On placing my order, I had asked for spoons. To my utter surprise, I was casually provided spoon from used plates with food stains still on it. I was shocked to see that. Never seen anything like this before. Iliterate and unhygenic people.

Been travelling done this road at least once a month when travelling to Kandy or Habarana, stop in this avanhala becomes a habit. If not for breakfast, lunch or dinner at least for a tea or beer. The buffet is a bit over priced but knowing that it's freshly prepared is worth the price. Yummy Sri Lankan food

A place where everyone stops on their way upcountry,they should maintain some standards. Ordered Faluda having seen a photograph at the entrance - the most disappointing Faluda I've ever had!! Don't order anything other than their Tea and coffee

Make sure you check your change after you have paid your bill. Had buffet breakfast for three people. The bill came to around 1200 Rupees. We paid with a 5000 rupee note. As we were in rather a hurry did not check the change, which I suppose was stupid of us, and found we were shortchanged by 3000 rupees. We... More

Its a nice stopover for food between Colombo & Kandy. The buffet spread for lunch was just average but food was nice. Try out the different Srilankan snacks. Its a bit crowded but food is worth the money you spend.

We always stop here when traveling between Colombo and Kandy. Very tasty snacks and tea coffee at reasonable prices. The buffet is good value for money. Very courteous staff. Bonus is very clean toilet facilities.
