Not very impressed by the food. Was very over priced for the quality of buffet food. Offered some Sri Lankan dishes but would not recommend and would probably try and pick somewhere else, at least you have the chance of choosing something better! Probably the place where most tour drivers take their groups.

We were sent by our tourist guide here though we insisted to go somewhere else. Jelly was hard and not appetising at all. Not much food choices for the price charges. Avoid at a costs.

This was a pre-arranged tour lunch stop during our 1 day Pinnawala/Kandy tour. Lunch was a buffet affair with a great range of salad/soup, mains (asian, european, curries) and desserts. All very nice. Price was LKR 1,200 pp + drinks. Very reasonable. Grab a balcony seat for excellent river views.

We ordered French fries and chicken biryani. The food service was awful and it took them more than 30 mins to serve the food. It was basically fried chicken with yellow rice ! And the food was cold and very poor. We will not come again and I advise any Middle East guest to go for another restaurant.

That was nice place and delicious foods but I am not happy with the service because I have to wait too much time to take my foods.

Including the food the service was as poor. While the expectation was not that great but the experience was just not good. No customization for the food whatsoever. There are plenty other options available !

We really enjoyed the food here, was a good mix of both traditional and Western flavours. Our driver had taken us to quite a few buffet restaurants( not in Kandy)but this was hands down the best. Some nice desserts too. Coffee was Nescafe so at least better than the usual 'soil in a cup' you seem to find everywhere in... More

Priced at LKR 1200/- this restaurant has a good selection of salads, main dishes and desert options. The only negative I found was the waiter wants to chat you up and interrupts to pour you water and find every possible way to interact with you.
