“Don't bother”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

Don't bother, you will be disappointed. Also don't be fooled by the look of the Hotel. We found the restaurant to be rather dirty. The Chef was a disgrace his tunic looked as if it had never been washed.
Food was not that great.

“Food was terrible”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

Went for dinner. It took about one and half hours to bring the food. The roast chicked was raw inside and was not edible at all.

Serving staff are courteous and accomodative but they definitely need to change the chef!

“Correct food but nothing more...”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

The choice of restaurant is not wide in Nuwara Eliya and we wanted to try something different from our hotel but it was not a success. When we arrived TV was on with sound at a very high level, owner was watching it and it did not really bother him that we were there so we moved to a table as far as possible from the TV and he did not even noticed it... Room was cold (it was a rainy and cold day so it did not help) and general atmosphere was not pleasant. Only positive things were the efforts of the waiter and the cook, doing their best to satisfy us. Food was OK but expensive considering the previous comments. As a conclusion it was the worst restaurant of our stay in Sri Lanka.

“Excellent food!!!”

Nice restaurant on the roadside. Popped in for dinner because the place looked promising. Turned out to be one
Of the best meals we had during our tour. Staff were very friendly and helpful and the prices were reasonable too.

“Just had a beer, but a bit musty”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

Just had a drink here - very quiet and smelt quite musty. The staff were kind enough to point out where we were on the map (after a wrong turn) so we could find our way back to our hotel.
