This restaurant was listed in our travel agent's suggested list and we were driven there by our chauffeur guide who is an old hand. It's dreadful! If you want the view - stand outside and look at the view and then get straight back in the car and go somewhere decent.
There is no air- con, inefficient fans and the buffet food is lukewarm and has clearly been sitting for a long time, a recipe for stomach upsets in this heat.
As another reviewer has said, go elsewhere and buy your driver lunch - you'll all be better off....

The restaurant located in the Rajapehilla Road on the top of the hill. You can enjoy the view of the Kandy city while you enjoy the food.
Service is bit slow but cannot blame as it is crowded. Pricey.

Ok so the view is lovely. But there is a free view point just below the restaurant. The food was so bad I was frightened that we would get bad stomach. (But we didn't)
It was also very very overpriced for what you got.

The view is nice, that's all. The rest is for non-experienced tourists only...

Overpriced over-salted cold and basic food. Cheap $2 wines which they sell for $30.
The only reason why any driver brings you to that "good place" is because they eat there for free. So your price includes a drivers meals (Or you still believe in Santa Claus?)

Tom Yum was terrible and we refused to pay for it. Chicken with cashew nuts were oversalted and cold. Steam rice was good (yeahh, its a sarcasm, sorry!) :)

Not recommended at all. Dont waste your money there.

Great views across Kandy Lake from a hill-side location. Decent Sri Lankan curry set meal. Driver ate free. Bit expensive for what it is but you are paying for the view.
