What ever you do. Do not let your driver take you here. It's just bad! I have a strong stomach but when I got my food the smell was off putting. I was starving and still didn't touch it! Noodles so over cooked! Even managed to mess up rice! I don't like to give bad reviews but unless they are... More

The food is terrible, I order a stake and what I received was some kind terribly cooked meat. Definitely not a place for stake. The prices are very high as well. Only good thing about this place is the view. It's looking over kandy lake so view is beautiful.

There is a viewing point 20 metres up the road from the restaurant, frequented by lots of tour buses, who naturally make there way to this place. The food is ridiculously expensive for what it is. Just go to the viewing point for exactly the same vista, and avoid being ripped off by tour guides getting back handers. This isn't... More

Our driver recommended this place and he has not been wrong so far. Great service, great views and strong local Gin served with no ice - what is not to love. Food was local and hot - devilled beef and hot spiced prawns served with plain noddles. No complaints as super flavours- lots of local chilli and dill seeds and... More

We went there for lunch yesterday. The views are lovely and the food was ok. We had the Sri Lankan curry deal. My husbands fish was nice but my chicken contained a lot of bone and skin which meant I couldn't eat most of it. We had enough rice for 8.

The view from the restaurant is it's only strong point. We arrived after the lunch rush and the staff seemed uninterested in serving us. When we asked the first waiter about the menu he simply walked off. Our second waiter took our order quite a while later and we had to wait an extremely long time for food that had... More
