“Ideal place for Good quality Sri Lankan food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

Devon Restaurant is on Dalada veediya about 200 meters from the temple of the tooth relic of the Buddha.this restaurant has a very long History and its the 3 rd generation that is now managing it.you can choose from a very wide range of Sri Lankan food either for Breakfast or lunch . The prices are very reasonable and one could have a very good meal for less than
US$2,50.

“Give it a miss”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014 via mobile

Staff and visual presentation of this restaurant was fine but the food we got was bad. We had sizzling steak that was so tough it was like eating beef jerky. The toilets were filthy also, I couldn't use them and had to go elsewhere. Give it a miss

“Years go by but Devon stays on”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2014

Devon is a restaurant that I used to go from my childhood.
The food is good and the atmosphere great.
'Devon Special' for lunch is something the meat lovers should try.
Clean, spacious, worth for money.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2014 via mobile

Went here for dinner 2 weeks ago after reading a good review in guide books hoping for some good Sri Lankan food. To sum up, no Sri Lankan food is served after 7pm so ended up eating what tasted like a bad Chinese takeaway! Service not great either
