Was so disgusting we decided to leave....only Buffett was available .... the food left out, uncovered ... flies over everything ..... unhygienic..no food standards maintained... would highly recommend avoiding .... oh and decided to charge us for using the washroom since we were not staying for food.... trying to rip off the tourist..... place is a joke.

Used this restaurant on way from Colombo to Kandy for lunch. Srilankan food buffet. Did not try chicken dish due to Halal diet requirement. Found it to be a bit overpriced at rupees 1000 per person, but the washrooms were clean, so this is the best option if you need something like rice and curry to eat on the way... More

Stopped here on the way to Kandy for lunch. The Sri Lankan lunch buffet was excellent and the price was very reasonable. This is gonna be our new everyday stop to Kandy.

Breakfast buffet Rs.500 including Rice, String Hoppers, Hoppers, Milk Rice, Fish Curry, Dhal Curry, Lunu Miris, Pol Sambol, Bread and few more selections including tea or coffee. It was heavy breakfast and staff is friendly. Place is clean and tidy.... More

It's located in the main road so easily accessible, however the food is horrible. I wish I had a negative rating option here. There is no air conditioning either. The food is stale and expensive for the quality. The coffe had waiters hair and the milk smelled bad. I rather stay hungry than eat or drink here
