Awesome

Had a really nice lunch here. The view was really nice. The owner of the restaurant was a nice and energetic man. He hade some trouble with a group of Chinese people (really really rude, snapping their fingers and shouting at him) and he stayed calm and explained the situation. Big cred.

Luckily we were staying in a hotel within walking distance of this excellent restaurant. The owner was really welcoming and took an interest in everybody who came into the place. The food was so good we went back for a second time the next night. Service was very good and both the drinks and the food were very reasonably priced... More

After 5 days of Lankan curry, we thought we should have something different. Found Slightly Chilled Lounge Bar on TA and decided to go there for late lunch. It was empty as it was way past lunch hours, and we couldn't order anything alcoholic. We decided to try some Chinese fried noodles and were pleasantly surprised with the food and... More

Really liked this place. Modern and hip and not your average Sri lankan eatery. While catering mainly for tourists, it was a lot of fun and there were some nice drinks at the bar too. If you're in kandy, make sure you sample the local street food too, but also check this place out for a cool evening meal and... More

The location is great as it overlooks Kandy lake. It is off the main road up a winding curving road. The owner is friendly and chatty. The views are great. We ordered seafood noodles which were OK. And also chicken in black bean sauce. There wasn't any sauce and the chicken was quite tasteless. Also almost every piece of chicken... More

Sorry that you did not enjoy our food. We use real black bean and not artificial black bean sauce for that dish as we try to be more authentic Chinese. In China you even get served the head and feet when you order a chicken and any chicken curry you eat in Sri Lanka will be served on the bone.... More

When we checked into our hotel, we asked the owner if he could recommend a restaurant and Bamboo Garden was the suggestion! It turned out to be a winner! The views are amazing and the food is wonderful! I'm still thinking about the eggplant and the hot and sour cabbage! The owner, Michael, was so friendly and made us feel... More

Kandy, charming as it is, is nevertheless bustling, noisy, hot, congested, polluted. I can think of no other place in Kandy I would have gone to to unwind and put the day in perspective than Slightly Chilled. The view beats anything you will see on the tour routes around the city. A great place to sink a few Lion beers... More

A nice clean place with good service and cold beer. The owner is friendly and makes sure his customers are not left wanting. The food was good and reasonably priced.

We found this place on tripadvisor and went for some drinks and snacks. We had shrimp cocktails and cocktail drinks. They were good enough. The place is on a terrace with a view of the city. If you wanna go more local it is not the right place, but if you want a relaxing atmosphere and nice drinks it is... More
