It is indeed a pleasure to see that Flower Song restaurant has made a great comeback at a new location under a new management and staff, after several years of very poor operations. Flower Song in Kandy used to be one of the best restaurants and one of my favorites in Kandy about 10 years ago. However in the last... More

I have been going to this restaurant and taking out food for as long as i can remember. The quality has always remained same. When ever i am in Kandy, i would always visit Flower Song. Excellent food and excellent service.

The real chinese taste in the food. The present location is too far from the main town area and less convenient that where it was. The kitchen staff could be more quick in preparing the food ordered.

The food is oké and the restaurant is very clean. Food is served relatively fast. The staff is very friendly and very attentive. Parking in front of the door. Remember that a large portion is enough for 2 people!

We were there for dinner one night. The restaurant was almost empty and they had the TV on with sound showing a cooking programme, so not very nice atmosphere. Although the service was nice and quick, the food was horrible, the only thing we were able to finish were the springrolls. Hot and sour soup was the worst we ever... More

I ordered food for Sunday lunch on Saturday afternoon - giving them a full 24hours to get it right. I call Sunday morning to confirm my order only to be told that they have no record of such an order. The person on the phone has the audacity to tell me that my order may have been received by their... More
