We have been taking out from the Lyon cafe many times especially as it is at easy reach. Earlier several years back the food was remarkably good and it used to be one of the most famous and popular restaurants in Kandy. But when recently when we ordered their Lyon Special Platter we were surprised. The flavor they used to have was still quite apparent but the whole meal was stuffed with large amounts of cabbage and carrots instead of any meat. We hardly found strips of Chicken and Beef here and there. The food was also quite spicy even for the Sri-Lankan platter. At this case the meal was also bit overpriced.
The staff was alright but once they jumbled our order and provided a different meal.

“The platter is not worth the hype in Lonely Planet”
Reviewed October 21, 2011

The place was fine, and the staff friendly, but the famous Lyon Platter is basically just everything they have poured onto a plate! It isn't disgusting but I wouldn't particularly recommend it
