We went for lunch one day and had great curry. We went back for dinner and found basically none of the local dishes on the menu were available. The waiter recommended a strange Chinese-Sri Lankan fusion dish full of fatty pork - probably the worst meal we had in Sri Lanka.

We stopped here for some late lunch / dinner in Kandy and were bitterly disappointed by the food. We ordered a mixture of fried noodles and curries all of which were exceedingly bland. My seafood noodles barely had any seafood in and I had to add a tonne of chilli sauce to make it taste of anything. Maybe they make the food like this to appeal to tourists, but I found the food disappointing for Sri Lankan standards. Worst meal I've had in Sri Lanka. On top of this it was also overpriced.

During our stay in Kandy, we ate 3x in Devon restaurant. We tried different food, but at the end still preferred the fried rice with chicken. Its rather cheap, comes with a fast service. Rice & Curry is too spicy for us, even if we say not spicy.
Big dining room with at least 20 tables. Fans running. Last visit a group of Chinese entered, we hurried to get out as it was then getting noisy.
Good value for money! Would recommend to all.

Tha place was crowded with locals because it was a sri lankan new year and really a lot of people around. This was my first meal in sri lanka, i had rice and curry of course, and it was delicious. As spicy as it should be, big portion and it came very fast. It costed only 130 rs, meaning 1 dollar!
