Expensive but accessible western food snacks available. Cold Carlsberg in big bottles. Good times. Located centrally in downtown Kandy.

Great food and a really cool vibe to go to with friends. Situated in the heart of town overlooking one of the most crowded streets in the region, a must go for travellers.

We were not sure where to stop and since our kids had a hard time with the spicy food, we opted for this restaurant. Even the local food was overly expensive, not to mention the beers. In addition, we had to wait for over 45...More

We found very few places serving booze in Kandy. This place is one of the very few that does and also stays open past 10pm. Because of this they can and do charge quite a bit for drinks. 2 large Lion beers cost around 1300...More
