“The Rice Box”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

Another centrally located eatery in the main street with an upstairs terrace from which to watch the noisy street below. We had a pot of tea and too away a ‘rice box’ with basmati rice, chicken and vegetable curries, a fried sambol and malung. The latter is an essential part of the Sri Lankan diet, a lightly spiced dry accompaniment made generally from one of a variety of shredded green leaves and grated coconut. Mallungs provide the the vitamin requirements for most people.

Great value at under $3 a head.

“I wouldn't feed it to my dog”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We went to the Devon on a recommendation. We weren't particularly hungry as we'd had a big lunch- and good job! We arrived just before 8pm and were told that they would soon close the doors, but we could order. We ordered chilli chicken, some rice and chips. It really was vile. The chicken looked like the offcuts and was really dry and inedible. The chips looked like they had been sitting around for quite a while and everything was just cold. We attempted to eat some of the sauce and rice, but just couldn't and had to leave our meal. Immediately after leaving we both felt unwell and my husband later had a bad stomach. This was the worst meal we'd had in sri lanka...and probably ever experienced. Avoid!

“Very tasty”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Typical Sri Lankan short eats. The best place to eat in Kandy. Very good value. Mutton rolls, patties, and other breaded foods. Lots of variety. You can eat inside but very crowded and hot.
