We went in the afternoon so the atmosphere was not as lively as it must be at night. The view is good but not outstanding. The food is reasonable but not outstanding either. Frankly I was a bit disappointed, especially as I had read several reviews about the place

This definitely was something different and probably most of the time of the best places to go for food and drink. However having ordered our food with specific instructions to make it mild we got a spicy dish. This was then taken away and returned a few minutes later. We we're told the boys said no return on this item.... More

After checking the reviews from this restaurant, we decided to go for dinner. I don't understand how customers write so good reviews.We choose as a starter the spring rolls . I had to send them back twice because they brought them to the table cold, really cold. We were 4 at the table, none of our selection of food was... More

We had a quick lunch break here and the staff were lovely. The owner gave us lots of great ideas for places to go in Kandy and in Colombo, all of which were great recommendations. If you're looking for a laid back atmosphere, good service and good eats then visit slightly chilled. Cheers Jamie and Clare Australia

This restaurant/bar is a must-visit for anyone visiting Kandy. There food is wonderful (excellent nachos for Asia) and I thoroughly recommend the eggplant hotpot. Wow! Try the White Elephant cocktail made from the local spirit Arrack. This place is family-friendly, as well as good for group get-togethers or couples. The owner really cares about customer service and is really accommodating... More

Probably the best and only nice bar in Kandy. There are a few others but this was great. Set on top of a hill, it has a beautiful view of Kandy, the lake and skyline. We went at night so couldn't see much so would love to see during sunset...too bad we found out about it so late. Drinks are... More

We didn't have food but went for cocktails at sunset and weren't let down. Its a little bit out of town but does give great views over the lake. Didn't find anywhere better in Kandy to chill out of an evening.

First of all, this place offers a great (perhaps the greatest) view over Kandy and its lake. The restaurant attracts great numbers of tourists, resulting in a nice international atmosphere. The food was nice. The real fun started when the owner (a British man) stated DJ-ing. "You won't get quality like this anywhere else", was his response to a sincere... More

Our family of 5 had lunch at Slightly Chilled Lounge, which was just average. View is good, overlooking the city. The decor clearly intended to be cool, but did not quite make it! Food was average and the service ok. The price was actually rather high compared to other places in Sri Lanka - especially for the quality. Worst thing... More
