The place was so convenient as it was next to our hotel. We enjoyed our meal especially the fried noodles. My goodness! It was amazing. The staff was great. The owner was present and came over to greet us as he did with every customer there. He actually sat down and had a chat with us. The waiter who served... More

There is nothing special about this restaurant. It is very nice that you can sit outside with nice view of Kandy lake. But the food was just OK and the service was generally friendly but when we were leaving, his look was like "you could leave a higher tip....". There are definitely better places in the town.

I am not sure how this place made it to no.1 for restaurants in Kandy on Tripadvisor. It seems to be a backpacker hostel serving standard Chinese food. It is a little bit of a hike out of town past the temple and up the hill. Ok there is a good view, but for me it wasn't worth the trek.... More

Must say not sure why you labeled this place as a hostel. I can only think that there is a poster on the stairs for the Kandy City Hostel which is a ten minute Tuk Tuk ride away. We are a restaurant and bar that cater for all kinds of tourists and locals and furthermore I think we have all... More

This is an easy review for me. As I've traveled through Sri Lanka I've really enjoyed the local food, but sometimes it's nice to have other good options too. Michael (the English guy that created this restaurant) is a cool guy to be around and he has created literally the only restaurant in town that has great food, a good... More

It's a fantastic view of the city but it's a bit out of the way and food was very average and quite expensive.

We had been given a tip-off to visit Slightly Chilled as part of our visit to Kandy. I have to say, I was very impressed. The food is excellent (try the aubergine) and great value. We missed happy hour, but even with this, the drinks were no more expensive than any other places in town. The bar has a great... More

We dropped by Slightly Chilled for happy hour, which is great value. When we saw the Chinese food coming out we stayed for dinner, and it was delicious, and great value. The waiter was very nice and politely let us know that we had over-ordered so we could change out order :) Nice view of Kandy from the terrace.

Great view of the town and the service is amazing. The food and drinks are all great and the prices are good. The owner is a great guy and sits and talks with everyone. He even came up to us while he was eating and told us we need to try his dinner. The owner also DJs on request and... More

As the name implies this place is super laid-back... We came for drinks and stayed for dinner, and then more drinks! Food was delish. The tunes are groovy and the owners are super cool, playing classic tracks on vinyl records made for a great atmosphere... Oh yeah, and then there's killer view!!

We came here as we had read all the awesome reviews on trip advisor and we were not disappointed one bit!! The owner is an awesome English guy who got the premier league up and running on the projector for me. The food was amazing and the view over kandy lakes is also great...
