Amazing lunch, no need to look past the curry & rice but chicken with cashews also excellent. Fantastic location, having the river rushing below.

We stopped off here for a light lunch, and were rewarded with a delicious assortment of curries and a fabulous view over Kandy's river. Very clean and the best wifi in Sri Lanka!

Rice and curry was excellent, views were great and the service friendly and attentive. 2000rs or £10 covered us both. Pleasantly quiet. Wife prefers cheddar in her omelettes but we're not in England so can't complain about that!!!

Our driver brought us here and it was delicious. My Wife and I both had the curry and rice. They were happy to make one mild and one spicy. All the side dishes were incredible. Great setting and blizzardly cold beer.

Description
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.
