Average Chinese food, overpriced but good service”

Dinner at the hotel is quite average in terms of food quality but the price is super high. Restaurant was very small and couldn't tell if it was open or if anyone worked there because it was always empty. The best part of the hotel is the staff. They really take care of their customers. We came to... read more

There is something sublime about "Sri Lankan Chinese" cuisine - adapted with local ingredients - deviled pork is a great example. Flower Song in Kandy, a part of a local chain is a great example. We came here for dinner on a Sunday evening. The restaurant was mostly empty but the staff was very attentive. The food came out slowly... More

(Zero communication between Kitchen Chef - service personnel - cashier??) The food I ordered was was a insipid mush of soya sauce mixed with water, kankun a soggy mess, and most probably deep fried pork and... More

Food was good, they proactively made a special noodle for my daughter without any spice and I appreciate fresh juice. Portions were generous.

This restaurant was a big mistake! My girlfriend is Chinese and she thought it was horrible! It tasted nothing like Chinese food and also the Sri Lankan food here was the worst on our trip so far. The food was not fresh and the noodles had no taste at all (which is almost an accomplishment). The sauces lack any taste... More
