What a place! Certainly one of the best restaurants and hotels we've ever been too - you won't find any other place like this in the world!

What a great restaurant. We were greeted by the "station master" whose exemplary attention to us was perfect bringing us each course as we rolled up at the next "station". The toy train restaurant in the tea factory hotel was a really memorable evening, great fun with the real sensation of movement as well in a real converted railway carriage!... More

If your around Nuwara Eliya while in Sri-Lanka, then why not drop in to The Tea Factory Hotel Restaurant. You'll be pleasantly surprised on what is being offered. I'll say no more. Enjoy.!!

Went during a round trip in Nuwara Eliya region. It is quite a journey to get up to this place but it is definitively worth visiting and enjoying a lunch or at least some drinks there. As it was low season the hotel manager allowed me to visit a couple of hotel rooms - nice and clean but nothing outstanding.... More

My six courses meal was fantastic. Even though it is some what expensive it's a worthwhile investment as you get the maximum to what you paid for. Staff was fully engaged during our late lunch. I feel how Rohanlal and his team wanted to give us the best. I guess your selection that matters.

The food is really nice and they have a real standards of welcoming and serving tourists. Also you can enjoy a drink at the bar where you can have a smoke. I would recommend the place to anyone heading to Nuwara.

Good food and good service in a special place. They have kept a lot of the atmosphere of the factory whilst giving it modern facilities.

This is a 'hotel' restaurant in the true sense of the word. While the room and the whole setting really look fantastic, and they have incorporated the old buildings and some of the original machinery to enhance the design and setting, unfortunately we found the buffet food was disappointing and took from the effort which has clearly gone in to...
