Place is usually busy & over crowded at times but the delayed service was the negative with doubtful hygiene measures.

This sprawling bakery, cafe and restaurant is our favourite place to eat in Sri Lanka. The food is also authentic and done well. If cakes are your thing they have those too. A must do if in Kandy for the morning/lunch. Also very cheap compared to the tourist traps around.

On one of the main streets, The Captain's Table is the upstairs part of Devon Restaurant. At lunch time there was a buffet of typical Sri Lankan food as well as Chinese style food. The servings are generous, the food is great and there is a wide choice. Drinks include real fruit juices. The premises are not licensed to serve... More

I don't see why anyone should feel the need to dine at this mediocre and poor value for money establishment when there are many decent local options in Kandy. I went to the Devon Restaurant in Kandy after reading in a blog that the devilled chicken was excellent. It was not. I ordered vegetable rice with devilled chicken. The two... More
