My husband and I visited the restaurant recently. We had previously ordered deliveries from Slightly Chilled until they stopped the delivery service. We were surprised to see such an expansive list of food and drinks on the menu. We were also happy to discover that...more vegetarian dishes were available at the venue than there had been on the delivery menu. Although Sri Lanka is a mostly Buddhist country, vegetarian friendly restaurants are hard to find in Kandy. The view and atmosphere were great, everybody seemed to be enjoying themselves, and there were all sorts of customers: groups of young travellers, families with children, and expat couples.The food is tasty, the portions are generous, and the prices are reasonable. We were also favourably impressed by the friendly and attentive staff. The only problem that bothered us was that music was a bit too loud and intrusive, but I’d still be happy to visit Slightly Chilled again.More

Traveling with husband and 2 sons (12 & 15). Fancied a change from Sri Lankan food and keen to see some live music so decided to try SCK. Fabulous views, great Chinese food (I especially recommend the morning glory), good atmosphere, friendly staff and clientele....Michael took time to chat to us about Sri Lankan beer. The band were ace. Lovely night, thank you xMore

A great place to chill in Kandy with a beer. I don't see any other place offering the same level of comfort in Kandy for the budget here.

The view’s great and the beers are cold – but only come here if you’re looking for a real ex-pat atmosphere. We found it a bit loud and a bit westernised for what we wanted that evening – but there’s nothing wrong with that if...that’s what you’re looking for!More

An evening at Slightly Chilled during your stay is not to be missed. Try to get there around 5p for HH and a good seat. We were lucky to have an incredible, fiery sunset with a great view over Kandy and shared several cocktails and...dinner. Michael, the owner, introduced himself and even sat down for a chat for a bit. The whole vibe is great whether you come solo, as a couple or with a family.More

It's the best bar in town. If you're not dying of boredom yourself, then this is your bar. Drink a local gin or vodka with cinnamon.

Called here last Saturday for a few beers and food. We got there about 3pm and orderd beer and a beef curry. Probably the best food of our trip so far. A very good large menu at a good price. We stayed till midnight watching...the live band which were excellent. We also had more food. Obviously by this time a few ales had been consumed, cant remember the name of the dish. Had a long chat with Michael, the boss, great chap and always willing to stop and talk. Also view over Kandy is fab, especially at sunset. I would definitely pay this place a visit, A great night. Beef curry the best. Graeme and susanMore

We walked up the hill with trepidation as the outside looked like the Bates Hotel but they had fabulous food - we had hot butter cuttle fish, sizzling pork, chicken burger + the Philly Cheese Steaks in Roast Paan Food was fabulous, all super fresh...and piping hot. This and many chilled beers were very welcome after our historic walk around Kandy The view is beautiful we recommend a little light afternoon music. We were told they play music only in the evenings.More
