Appreciate everyone has a different experience but have to say ours was much more positive than negative. We stooped off not really intending to eat but looking at the fayre and smelling the aroma from other tables we were more than tempted.

Restaurant food in Kandy is generally disappointing. The Honeypot is a tourist restaurant but it did not have the usual tourist buffet which is good sign. We enjoyed a good vegetarian curry and beer. Our waiter was polite and effective.

We were taken to this restaurant by our guide on the way to our villa. We're so glad he did. It's in a lovely location overlooking the river, with a lovely view. Everything tasted great and was very fresh. Would definitely recommend eating here

The food was fresh and hot. The prices were a great deal to me compared to American Restaurant. The waiter gave great customer service. The view was the absolute best. The restaurant sits on pure beauty! Great after a hot day of sight seeing.

The Honeypot Restaurant & Guest House is an Eighty seater family Restaurant located 1.5Km from the Kandy town centre.(About 5-8 minutes from the central Town Clock Tower by TukTuk). It is a great place to enjoy a meal overlooking the river and mountain range and indeed away from the pollution and noise of the town centre, yet not far from all the sight seeing places and attractions of the historical City. We offer a child and family friendly atmosphere. We serve hot and cold food from authentic Srilankan curries to fish&chips,Seafood dishes,fried rice, noodles, snacks, sandwiches, Halal dishes and many more. We also serve a selection of fresh tropical fruit juices along with hot drinks too. All our dishes are prepared to a very high standard. Our Prices are very low, whilst the service we offer is like no other. We also provide a free WiFi service to all our guests. The Honeypot also has four Guest Rooms which are clean, simple and competitively priced. All rooms are en-suite with a/c and fans. All rooms have a private balcony overlooking the river. The Honeypot prides itself for its simple original building design & deco, constructed utilising local material.
