We went for dinner as a family outing. It was nice surroundings and nice food. The oil they used to fry the vegitables had some bad taste. Apart from that, everything was perfect.

A bit tricky to find if you do not know where it is (our driver didn't) but once you're there you'll immediately know you came to right place. Great food (some of the best I had in Sri Lanka), funky music (there was a DJ when we were there) and an astonishing view over Kandy. Great place to have dinner... More

My chicken noodles were great! Terrace is cool and cocktails ok. Not a local place, mainly tourists and backpackers, great if you are in need of a chat and a beer!

Beautiful location overviewing the lake. Professional, excellent service by nice waiters with excellent social and language skills. The Chinese food we ordered was the best food I had during my entire holiday in Sri Lanka. The wine tasted good and was served at the right temperature. The price was reasonable too. Highly recommended!

Great view over the city - gets very busy at sunset - service was good. didn't try the food but plenty of people eating. Very much catering for tourist market (no problem I was a tourist!)

We went specifically to watch Sri Lanka play in (and win!) the T20 World Cup. Very decent Chinese meal on the terrace and the owner Michael saved us a sofa in the back where the screen and 40 locals were! Great atmosphere and a nice chat with a clearly popular host/owner.

It seems this is the only decent place in Kandy. Good view , good choice of food and drinks, positive atmosphere. My waiter didn't speak English well, but it is not a big issue.

Please don't miss this place as your holiday won't be complete. As the headline suggests it has everything including Michael the owner who will help your holiday along without any sign of a benefit to himself as you will experience at a lot of establishments on this wonderful island. Would call the food a touch "nouveau" compared to other places... More

I have been in Kandy for a couple of nights, travelling alone. Michael and his wife were so hospitable and the food was so good that I ended up going there on both nights. All of the other reviews tell you what you need to know in detail, in short though - the bar is lively, the staff are very... More

The entrance quite frankly put us off going in the place at all, not exactly clean or welcoming. Have spent quite a while finding the bar we entered. Once up the staircase, reminded me of the entrance to The Pub so there must be something about bars in Kandy, the opinion changed and the entrance was forgotten. The room is... More
