Chilled out little spot with a nice view. Good place to meet other travellers over a cocktail or cold beer. Food was pretty good, no complaints really other than the fact it's a bit of a wander from the centre. Although to be fair it's a nice walk along the lake and past the Temple of the Tooth.

Best hamburger I've had in ages! The food was great quality and really good. I went there a couple of times during my short stay in Kandy. The service was great and the view is brilliant. The place has a really nice chilled and nice atmosphere.

Great view, friendly relaxed atmosphere, personal service and huge choice of food. Toilets could perhaps be improved, but would recommend this bar and would return.

Really nice place for a drink with great views. It can get quite lively so I'd say it's more of a drinking place than somewhere for a nice meal. We did eat here though, it was ok, nothing fantastic but the service was very attentive. Kandy itself has so little to offer, with more competition this place could potentially be... More

I was here at night time so I did not have the view, but the food was not really all that good. And it was overpriced. If you want to sit under covering, you should make a reservation. The weather in Kandy changed constantly from dry to wet, so this is advisable. They do take credit, which is a plus.

Lovely view over Kandy. Drinks quite well priced for the type of place. Owner was there personally assuring everything was good. Ordered dinner which came quickly and chicken steak and burgers were all delicious. Welcomed our children too. Thank you.

The tuk tuk drivers are likely to know this bar as the Bamboo Garden, It is for sure a great bar/restaurant. It overlooks Kandy, service is very good, the prices are right and the beer is cold. The owner, Michael, is very well connected. He was able to recommend a very good taxi driver (Sanjeewa Asanka) who took us on... More
