Great view

Fun place to go for a drink in the evening. There's a really great view of the city from the balcony. They serve a range of cocktails as well as beer. Really relaxed staff who let anyone plug in there phone/iPod and choose the music. There's also a pool table at the back of the bar. Would recommend... read more

Will give this 5 stars as it was just what we needed part way through our island tour. Right near our hotel, nice Chinese food, great atmosphere for a few beers or more; and an owner who brought us back to our younger days with his record collection and DJing skills towards the end of the evening. Thanks.

Visited with friends one day for dinner. Didn't know that you need prior reservation at the restaurant. The place was packed and had to wait for few mins to be seated. So make sure you do a reservation before hand. We ordered the food but nothing fancy, surprising that the restaurant is among the top 05 in Kandy. I believe... More

Sit outside for a great night view. The owner, Mike, is a great host. He offered to open the lounge up so we could watch the Super Bowl though we declined. Loud music and a happy crowd. Food was the least impressive part but good.

Visited here once and were pleasantly surprised by the options on the menu. We were a little disappointed when we were informed that a few items on the menu we wanted were not available but the food we did get was well prepared and tasted good. The prices felt a little high. Our waiter was really nice and we really... More

Busy place with a pleasant terrace. Food was alright, but nothing to write home about. Amazingly this offer makes it in the top 3 in Kandy. The whole place is a bit run down, especially the toilets. The menu was predominantly Chinese and had some good choices. Service was very fast and consistent. Apparently the owner is foreign and knows... More

Great for a beer or a glass of wine to see the sun go down with a view of the Buddha on the hill. Food was okay - nothing special.

After a long uphill trip to see Buddha statue we were very thirsty and hungry! This olace was reccomended to us by people we met randomly. I have to say we do not regret the visit! We ordered beer which was served to our table bary quickly, in lovely chilled glasses! We needed that cold drink badly! Beer was properly... More

Busy little bar overlooking the lake in Kandy. We had the Beef Szechuan which was tough as old boots, extremely hot (a dozen dried chillies) with bits of cucumber!! We managed most of it - it's big enough for 3 people with rice. The reason this place is in the top 10 places in Kandy, is because you could count... More

good bar with a variety of drinks and cocktails, great atmosphere but the music could have been better. the location is nice with views over the lake. the food was also good. this place is touristy but all in all it's a nice place to spend the evening having a few drinks and dinner.
