A cut above the rest in Kandy

The restaurant has an outdoor open area and an indoor area. The outdoor area is a bit crowded and noisy, but the indoor area is relatively quiet. It currently goes as more of a bar than a restaurant, which is a shame because the food is excellent in quality and value. We tried their sizzling... read more

Probably the best bar in kandy but its hard to find others to compare it against. Good views out of the terrace and good use of space make it a good bar. I'm not sure why they serve Chinese food, average at best, and wish they wouldn't. Whats up with lical dishes? The staff are lovely but pretty rubbish, don't... More

This place was a real godsend. Once you've had your fill of Lankan food, give this place a go. Their seafood fried rice was delicious, and their other Chinese dishes were really good. Try the salt and pepper cuttlefish and kang kung with garlic. Dinner time is popular, so come early if you want to secure a balcony seat with... More

I enjoyed the sliced beef in sizzling hot plate I had here. The bar is on a rooftop and looks out on the hills, great view! The place is cosy and a lot of Western people seem to hang out here. Great loungy bar!

This is our favorite restaurant and bar in Kandy. Even when you are there just for a drink you just have to order some food because it always smells so delicious. And it doesn't just smell good, it so tasty. My favorite is the sizzling garlic chicken witch you can die for. The owners are a super sweet married couple... More

Slighttly chilled was a great bar and lounge. It was one of the better restaurants on our trip.we hadthe eggplant claypot which was nice and the bean curd which was bit dsiappointing. Basically like tofu i.e no flavour but the sauce which was nice, they needed more of it. Overall a really nice experience.

We visited here on our last night in Kandy for the view (which is spectacular). The generous gin and tonics were a plus, but the food was something special. The eggplant clay pot was an absolute winner. Also the sizzling chicken and ma po tofu were delicious (mind the spice!). A great place. Filled up rapidly just before six so... More

Hi, we had a dinner with our friends after Kandy view, minus was that it was hard to find, otherwise the food was great and the owner was very kind. Still we didn't got bear as it in law that the time was bad (14:00 - 17:00) , hoping you enjoy this place

Kandy is not full of restaurants/bars and such so this place is a really good alternative. You have great views of the lake and the surrounding hills. And around 5-6 it gets packed so try to get here a little early for seats outside. We came for lunch, but ended up staying until they closed. One of the reasons we... More

Great for meeting likeminded travellers, good music, food and company, it's based uphill from the lake so great for a sundowner or 10!
