We only ordered a pot of tea and a cup of coffee. The teapot was huge, and the coffee was very mediocre. But a handy spot to stop, in the middle of Kandy city.

...but that is the only redeeming feature. Oh, except the food turning up quickly, that also happened, but I'm not sure that counts because it was cold. It's not the cleanest in the restaurant, the toilets are not good at all, and the food is poor. I guess for a traveller with a minimal budget this could be a good... More

A visitor , local of foreign, who visit Kandy, during breakfast, lunch or tea time, will wish to find a reasonably cost effective place for food and beverage. Devon restaurant is one of the few in town which can be called cleaner, convenient and cheap for palatable food. What I don't like is the large crowds gather during peak hours... More

You may need to park in the Kandy car park and come through Kandy city center. Tasty food for reasonable price... Its so crowded during lunch time and sometimes you need... More

We had lunch at this place and enjoyed the food (Lamprais for 375R). The place was really packed with local people so the food is not necessarily a tourist place making it somewhat interesting to visit. What might be somehow disturbing is that the restaurant is kind of a fast food restaurant as the staff wants you to leave right... More

It is easy to find, just located next to the KFC and food city. Many choices of foods, good service. Especially the milk tea, it's the best milk tea I've ever tried in SL and I guess the local people love the milk tea here too because at that night I saw four people came in and just ordered milk...
