It's been love at first side. Because of earlier bad experiences we had decided to pick a really clean place. And there it was: Wicky's KGC Bistro! Conveniently located at the bus stop of the Kandy Garden Club close to the lake. A small place, decorated in pleasant, fresh colours and comfortable enough furniture. The meals offered had been cooked here and nicely put on the plates, then professionally photographed instead of downloading them from the internet. The photos were displayed in a neat way on the walls and made you see and feel that the owner had put a lot of thought, taste and effort into making his place outstanding. There is food for the carnivore as well as for the vegetarian, you get freshly squeezed juices and freshly brewed island coffee. The food is freshly cooked with quality ingredients by an experienced cook who knows how to prepare mouth-watering dishes. No limp vegetables or noodles, no, the veggies are crisp and the noodles cooked to the point. Absolutely tasty. And the dishes look exacty as shown on the photos. No luring you into the resto with faked photos and serving this tasteless, cheap stuff you had a hundred times before in other places. No, this is the real thing. And if you have a sweet tooth try the caramel pudding - amazing! We had all kinds of meals here: breakfast, lunch, dinner or just a coffee or tea in between and ended up eating here at least once a day each and every day we spent in Kandy - and that means a full week. When we return to Kandy the next time we will have our meals again at Wicky's place, the KGC Bistro.

Theres not much to say about this little cafe that the amount of great reviews and your bill cant answer. The food is big and tasty, the bill is cheap. Great staff make it a pleasure for foreigners travelling, and its used by many locals also. If you sit inside you will ha e to contend with the flies (depends how you are with flies) or you can take out.

Cheap, cheerful, excellent.

This place is tiny and very busy, we were so lucky to get the last seats in the place and managed to order straight away, the food was with us very quickly, it was so tasty, it really was a favourite for me and you are eating with the locals, its definitely getting a good name with the tourists as a few were waiting when we left. If you don't want to eat in hotel restaurants all the time this is a great place to try the local flavours I am sure you wont be disappointed.
