If you're looking for all the things that make for a memorable dining experience and for all the wrong reasons, then dine here. Our party of four almost donned aprons and hats to bring order to the kitchen chaos, let alone help wait table. Two hours after placing our order, dishes were still appearing and the food was indifferent at... More

Listen to the guidebooks - eat at your guesthouse! It may have been due to the busyness of this place but it seemed like total chaos. Tables around us were leaving because they'd been sat waiting 30 mins just to order and others tried to leave but were given free drinks in order to stay a little longer and wait... More

If you want to try some local food, here is a very good choice. There are comparatively various food to choose and taste, and the most important thing is that all the dishes we ordered tasted very good. The waiters here are also very warm. If you are a very picky one for the environment and atmosphere, the White House... More

We went to Devon Restaurant in the evening, which was possibly our error as they weren't serving many of the Sri Lankan options on the menu. The choice was mainly a range of Chinese dishes. One that we ordered was reasonable for the price the other fairly bad. There aren't many other places in Kandy with a 'restaurant' feel, but... More

If you are after a good restaurant in the heart of Kandy, Devon is perfect. We had a selection of vegetarian and chicken curries, and the total bill only came up to about $3. The food was excellent, and arrived very quickly.

Devon is located in the center of the Kandy City and is one of the biggest restaurants in Kandy. Devon is the place which most of people come to have snacks, tea, meals to a budget price. (price is not low but is worth the price) The quality of food is good and the service is also good. Sometimes may... More

The atmosphere in this "restaurant" is not nice and it is also not clean. The food is not too good, but probably value for money if you are looking for a cheap meal! No second time for us!
