We stumbled in here through the bakery and decided to sit down I their restaurant for the curry lunch set. Delicious curries with mountains of rice for an excellent price. Around 300rs from memory. Kids had noodles and fried rice and both were way too large to finish. Excellent speedy service and very friendly waiters.

Bake house is a restaurant I have been to for so many years. The food is always good and getting better with the years gone by. My favorite is the 'Special Lunch' which is rice and a mix of vegetables and meat. Prices are reasonable and cleanliness of the restaurant is at it's best.

We visited here on our way back to our hotel in the evening. I asked for two cakes and paid. When I asked for a bag, the two guys who were serving refused and started laughing at us. I said that we were travelling on and the cakes would get squashed. On their counter they had some take away boxes... More

Restaurants and snack bars in the city of Kandy is in abundance. Out of the leading restaurants , Bake house is one of the oldest and is located in the heart of the city. The large display of short eats and snacks in the front of the restaurant enables you to have a quick snack or a carry away pack,... More

After walking around Kandy for a while, we wanted to sit, and have some refreshments. We chose this place. Sit outside on the veranda overlooking the avenue. It provides shade. Sit in the large chairs, and order a gin and tonic. You will have a flashback to the days when the British ruled.

We popped in here to escape the heat and bustle of Kandy and it's very good place for a quick snack. Very good selection of rolls, breads etc on display outside and we had 2 of their fresh juices which were delicious. Nice and clean inside and a good mix of tourists and locals eating there. Worth a visit!

After reading favourable reviews of the Bake House we stopped in to sample just that, the 'baked' goods. Not being familiar with the establishment and not knowing better we were 'latched onto' by ardent staff and ushered to a back section of the restaurant where we were seated and presented with menus ... which held no actual baked goods, just...

This place was recommended to us, however the staff did not speak a word after we were seated in the restaurant. We had silent service without a smile (strange for Sri Lanka). There was no local Sri Lankan food on offer… not much for vegetarians. The restaurant has a nice layout and design, but lacks atmosphere. The papaya and mango... More
