Food was great. Service very carting and place fun. Very high turn over of food and full of people coming for take away. Only few tables to eat there. Don't comme for a romantic dinner :-) but its a very nice experience. Very clean and food is simple but very very good in this category of price. No beer!

This is a brilliant little Cafe situated halfway around the Lake.when we first were recommended to this cafe we walked in and walked out as it appeared to be just for locals and the noise fro traffic was quite loud. Because I was I'll for a couple of days my husband went and bought takeaways for 2 nights and now we are hooked. We do all our sightseeing in the morning have lunch in town then return to our Hotel to relax . Then dinner is brought back to our Hotel and we enjoy it sitting outside. We have tried a variety of Vegetarian dishes and loved them all. Always fresh.

Recommended by our hotel, this is very basic in appearance and right on the busy road, but it is a jumping place for locals and visitors alike. Big turnover of wonderful local dishes so the food is always fresh ( you can watch it being cooked in a busy but really efficient kitchen as you wait). Spicy, so let them know if you want it less so. We are vegetarian and we were pleased to see how the hotplate was cleaned before cooking our dishes. You can eat in on basic plastic furniture or most customers get take-away. Excellent value as it is all at prices the locals pay.

We came here for lunch after reading a review on trip advisor. We weren't disappointed. The food was great for the 2 pounds we paid for both meals and came out really quickly. The owner spoke little English but was extremely friendly when we said we were enjoying. Everything was cooked in an open kitchen and the smells coming out were fab. Would visit again!

The Garden cafe is a cafe/takeaway situated on a main road in Kandy. Its a corrugated roofed building with a couple of plastic chairs and tables. It is the Sri Lankan equivalent of a greasy spoon cafe in the UK. The food is tasty and very very cheap, excellent for travellers on a budget. The cheapness is sacrificed for comfort however and having a leisurely meal in temperature controlled environment is not what you'll find here. The cafe has plenty of locals queueing for takeaway meals and has a certain charm. Its certainly worth a visit for a tasty cheap meal.
