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!

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 call Sunday morning to confirm my order only to be told that they have no record of such an order.

We went to this place during a business visit to Kandy. Ambience, Time Taken to Serve and food taste were very good. Spacious, glazed outer partition gives Panasonic view if kandy city which relaxes your mind as well.

We dined here and also had the take away lunch menu, all in the space of a few days. The food was a bit better than average. Decent restaurant, with the cleanest toilets! Staff try hard.
