We went in search of the slightly chilled lounge (as it had a good write up in the rough guide to Sri Lanka) after visiting the temple of the tooth but never found it because it seems it's name has changed to bamboo garden (which we did see signs too)!

We came here based on the good reviews we'd read on TA. We arrived at 5.30, which was just in time for happy hour (buy two cocktails and get one free). The cocktails were great and there was a large choice on the menu. We had a table at the edge of the balcony and enjoyed watching the sunset. The... More

This bar was great for a drink and meeting other travellers. The staff were quick and attentive and the view is lovely. You can see the whole city. Best to order the asian food as the western food is pretty average, but thats like most places in Sri Lanka. I ordered the nachos and they were oily and weird, they... More

We went back there 2 times to play cards and chill out in this calm and nice panorama point. We enjoyed the vegie burgeer with french fries ! I tried prawns also, they were fresh and tasty. I recommand this place to find peace in the very noisy Kandy !

Me and a friend came on the last day of Esala Perahera, so couldn't indulge in a cocktail, however the 'mocktails' were just as nice! Had the nachos to start which were delicious. We had read good things about the eggplant pot (main dish) but unfortunately it was very oily making it quite sickly, the same as the friend veg... More

We stopped off for lunch and we're very impressed with the speed of service and very high quality of food. Well presented, full of flavour. I had the sizzling beef which was immense and my fiance had spicy chilli chicken which packed a punch but was also delicious! The staff we met were polite and chatty. The views from the... More

From the Temple of the tooth, it is less than a 10' walk in order to get there. Ate from steamed vegetables to spagetti bolognese to Fried noodles. Loved the place and definitely for lunch

Lively bar/restaurant popular with tourists. Good, varied menu which is a nice change from the normal Sri Lankan fare. There were no burgers when we visited but we really enjoyed the nachos and felafel wrap. Great terrace with fantastic views of the sunset over Kandy. Arrive early as it gets very busy.

We tried a few different places while in Kandy, and this was by far our preferred place to enjoy a beer in the evening, and the one we returned to most. Even though we were staying quite some distance away on the other side of the lake. Some tasty light meal/snack options, though not outstanding. Service was a bit of... More
