Typical rooftop cafe

It was OK, the standard veg burger and fresh juice type meal with views of luscious Kandy. Although I think the fruit juice is watered down, was full of seeds and I'm suspicious over the ice's safety. There is a DJ booth which is probably good at night but they just played some Michael Buble at... read more

We loved the view and food at this restaurant and immediately felt at home. If I could make one suggestion, it would be for the waiters to give patrons some space. Our waiter kept lingering around our table and it felt like he was watching us eat so that he could clear the plates. He looked like a trainee, so... More

Spent the early afternoon here drinking beers during happy hour. The staff were all friendly and talkative - champions! The sunset was outstanding from high vantage point and the food smelt delicious (was too full from lunch to eat). Would definitely come back!

The restaurant/lounge bar is almost exclusively frequented by tourists. The prices are high, and for the cocktails the quantities are a bit short... Otherwise, food is tasty, and the portions are just enough, if you are not starving. One good thing : for almost every meal and drink, there is a "regular quantity" price and a "bigger quantity" price, which... More

If your looking for some good Szechuan, cold beer a killer view then this is the place to be. Michael the Brit proprietor is also a great source of tips and suggestions of other places/things to do whilst I'm Kandy.

We went to Bamboo Garden after visiting the Cultural Dance Show not far away. Loved it, from the moment we stepped in. You go upstairs, and it opens to an open bar and restaurant, with great views across the hills. The menu is mainly Chinese cuisine with a few western dishes - our group ordered a mixture of dishes and... More

Granted this place is popular - you only have to see the positive reviews on TA to back this up. However, I'm struggling to see what's so special? The view is fab yes, but you are packed in amongst every other tourist in Kandy, all sat drinking cocktails and food you can get in any other city, any time. The... More

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.
