Went there hungry, assuming the number 1 restaurant on Trip Advisor would offer the best food in town....don't make the same mistake. Food is mediocre at its best with the chicken sizzling full of bones, salt, bland and nothing that would remind me of Chinese food. Other customers next table report their food was tasteless..
Beer was nice and cold and at a discounted price of 250 ruppies. But happy cocktail ( mojito) for 500 ruppies is quite overpriced for local standards. Staff very attentive, fluent in English and good music in the background. Keep in mind their happy hour times: 5-6 pm !
So overall, this is a great place to come chill with your friends over a nice cold beer. Go eat somewhere for better food at half the price. This place should not be listed as the best restaurant in Kandy, but as the bar with the best view...

This bar is the perfect place to eat, drink and be merry! My partner's English friend who is living in Kandy brought us here one night. He warned us about the food but I thought it wasn't too bad, we ordered fried rice, squid and stir-fried mixed vegetables. The portions are big, more than enough for the 3 of us. The music is really good, the owner has a large collection of vinyls which impressed me and he DJ-ed that night which was super nice! The view is pretty at night but it would have been nice to get there at sunset and watch the view of the lake. Must go when in Kandy!

For some reason, in Sri Lanka restaurants just are unable to bring all food together. My husband got his meal, and I got my rice but then waited for my chicken for quite some time. The food is ok - people say its great but we didn't think so. Most western food in Sri Lanka is quite terrible, so this food was better in comparison but still falls short of 5/5. The ambiance is ok, a little dark. Could do with some plants otherwise feels like you're sitting in a random balcony.

Given the limit choice in Kandy for decent places to eat, Id go back here again.

Best spot in Kandy by far. The food is great (try the sizzling beef dish), the cocktails are decent and the view is amazing. Go just before sunset and watch flocks of bats fly up from town over your head.

The owner is a lovely guy and his music selection is spot on.

Brilliant place to meet some more colourful locals!
