“Great place to chill out”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

Great place for drinks with a good vibe and friendly staff. They have great Chinese food which i was a bit taken aback with because... we're in Sri Lanka - but i heard the owner telling another table that this place used to be owned by a Chinese family. We ended up coming here twice as it had the best atmosphere and drinks menu we saw in Kandy. Bathrooms could do with a better clean though - but thats Asia.

“Chilled and relaxed !”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

My brother and I went here last week (June 1st) the bar offers great views from the outer deck with comfy seats, good service and a nice cool breeze from the lake below. There is a pool table at the far end of the bar which we used for a few hours and the bar owner (Mike) is a pleasant affable big fella who was good to chat with. Food looked good and the beer was ice cold so we were happy to chill out here for a few hours listening to some music, shooting pool and knocking back a few cold ones.

“Nice place for a drink and excellent food”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

Met the owner at the market during the day and decided to stop in for a drink. Loved the place. The owner is an English guy, really down to earth and very chatty. Had the beef noodles for dinner and meal was huge. Typical western prices but wasn't expensive. Enjoyed the atmosphere. Didn't arrive until dark so cannot comment on the view. This place should def be in the Lonely Planet guide. Free wifi.

“Free wifi and lake view”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

a bit out of the way, and hard to find, but worth the hunt. Good food, and a lovely fresh breeze, with good view of the lake.

“Nice place for a drink”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

We went here with some friends for a drink and some food on a Saturday night. The food is quite expensive for what it was, and takes a while to come. The waiters were very friendly and polite. The food was fine, and slightly more authentic chinese food than you usually get in Sri Lanka. We had read reviews that the food wasn't good so we were pleasantly surprised!

It was already dark so we couldn't see the view but the terrace was really nice and pleasant with a breeze. It was pretty full- unusual for Kandy where we were often the only people in a restaurant! We were 5 girls so did get some attention from some Sri Lankans there but they were only friendly and not too insistent.

The drinks were fine, although the cocktail list was not that exciting and it was quite expensive compared to other places in Kandy. Saying that, it is obviously a touristy place so you expect slightly higher prices and it is still very cheap compared to the UK.
