It is a great place to stop by and have snack or a meal, while you're on awalk around the Kandy lake. They serve Sri Lankan food as well as the common fast food in Sri Lanka. The food quality is average and the service is good.

Right next to the cultural centre where we had seen the Kandyan Dance Show. We tried hopers for the first time, very tasty. We had 1 egg hopper & 5 plain hoppers each with fish & chicken curry and chutney & chilli salsa. (You better like it hot, which we do)
