Good food, good location

This place, like many in Sri Lanka it seems, could really do with better signage! Service was ok, saved by a good host. Nice view over the lake, but I don't think it would be the best in the city.

I just feel hungry, just open TripAdvisor ,just show took-took driver the name of N1 place. After few minutes of way I all ready enjoy imported German beer and very high ( for south-east Asia) quality food.

Pretty average bar serving petty average yet relatively expensive Chinese food, albeit with a nice view of Kandy. The Singapore noodles were a disappointment with no real flavour and the sizzling chicken really failed to sizzle! The view is really nice and the staff are friendly so its worth going there for a drink. The arak cocktails were good and... More

I follow the advice of TA and until this afternoon it had never let me down. We pulled up to this place and should have followed my first instinct as it looked very filthy. I decided to give it a go as it's had such good ratings. I ordered Singapore noodles and it was served completely cold and the taste... More

Travelling with 2 children aged 9 & 10 - it is not always easy to find a place that suits them and us - this place is big enough for the kids to be able to roam fairly easily without going stir crazy. The staff were super friendly on both our visits which makes such a difference. Ate here 3... More

Our waiter, Satun was excellent - the best service we have had in Sri Lanka. He was friendly and helpful, recommending good choices. We loved the chilli cauliflower especially. The atmosphere was good and nice music. One recommendation is that the chicken has bits of bone through it (it did say this on the menu) but it spoilt the experience... More

Normally, reviews at TA are quite a fair help to grade a place. Alas, not at all in this case. Grossly overrated – nay totally misleading. Everything is forgivable at an eatery but not filthy toilets. What can one expect out of an outlet which doesn’t know how to take care of its washrooms? I wish my photos could convey... More

Our toilets are cleaned everyday. However I would admit that they are in need of modernization which will be change at the end of April. If the taps are turned on and there is a flow of water in the urinals then the smell goes. We bought a lock for the door but neither me or my staff could work... More

Came here without a booking and although a table was unavailable (due to the rain) we were happy to sit in the bar to eat. We were recommended the sizzling beef and chilli chicken by our server, which we went for and they were both amazing! The service was brilliant and the food arrived very quickly even though they were... More

Great service and really amazing food - slightly chilled is a must go! Fantastic atmosphere and the view over kandy & the lake is so beautiful esp at sunset. It's about at 15minute walk out of the city centre but well worth the walk/tuk tuk ride. Best bar/restaurant we've been to on our trip so far! Very Highly recommended !
