Too much of oil and artificial food additives in Chinese foods. Local meal, Rice and curry buffet opened for lunch. recommend hoppers(Snack) in the evening. always go for bottled beverages not fresh juices. New management.

Not the best place to visit for despite it's convenient location. Food is served cold and the service is even colder

Avanhala is one of the oldest restaurants in Kandy. It's quite famous for its delicious food. Great location.

It is a great place to stop by and have snack or a meal, while you're on awalk around the Kandy lake. They serve Sri Lankan food as well as the common fast food in Sri Lanka. The food quality is average and the service is good.

Right next to the cultural centre where we had seen the Kandyan Dance Show. We tried hopers for the first time, very tasty. We had 1 egg hopper & 5 plain hoppers each with fish & chicken curry and chutney & chilli salsa. (You better like it hot, which we do)

Thank john s
