I went a few times, this restaurant is a favourite for backpacker's and tourists. The food is great and cheap. Some of the waiters are really funny.

Serves breakfast which is a bonus and the food is cheap. We went for a light lunch and seen some fantastic meals being served so we decided to go back for dinner. We ordered the Fish special which is what we had seen earlier. It was OK a change from curry but the fish was majorly over done some bits... More

You enter in a canteen restaurant without atmosphere. The service is very bad, they are laughing at you. The food is really not good, you have pieces of bones in your beef chopsuey. I do not understand why it is recommended in tourist guides. ..

My son lives in Thailand so he fancied an indian curry. We checked on Trip Advisor and went to the one with the best comments - we went in, looked at the menu, had a beer and walked out. It was dark and dingy and unwelcoming. SO, we went back to the Devon Restaurant (also known as the Captains Table)... More

The waiter cleaned our table by wiping left-over food with a napkin and was pissed because we only ordered one curry to share for two. He made is feel unwelcome and urged us to pay while we were still eating. The curry was also dissapointing. Small portion, nothing compared to what we had in many other places.

Devon is my choice to dine whenever I visit Kandy. They have a good selection of menus for affordable prices and food is pretty good. A good place for a hurried lunch I'd say as the it is quite busy. Staff is also good, though one might complain about the lead time.

A recommendation from a local service manager made me go there first time and now I have been there 3 times and enjoyed the food and the atmosphere The concept of this local company is to provide everything from first class to budget under one roof even take away and all at a good price performance ratio and they are...
