It is located near the station on the road from Town to the railway stop. We had dinner (fried rice) from this restaurant. The restaurant had displayed many information of the attractions in the are along with photos. There are structures made with stems and...branches of trees (Rail etc) . The service was moderate. They took about 15 minutes to prepare the food. The price was little expensive than similar places. You can get views during the day as mist covers it during the evenings. A sticker of Trip Adviser was pasted at the front.More

Extremely slow service, we weren't even acknowledged when we sat down. I asked to use the bathroom, big mistake! I was taken down the darkest dingiest flight of stairs to a guest room to use the toilet. It was absolutely disgusting, filthy dirty and the...toilet wouldn't flush. If we hadn't ordered I would have left there and then. After a considerably long wait and noting that a couple on the neighbouring table had hardly eaten any of there food and complained about it, our 'food' arrived. It looked extremely unappetising and after witnessing the toilet facilities I well and truly lost my appetite. I ended up feeding a stray dog my dinner, he seemed to enjoy it.More

There's nothing like Sri Lankan food, and this is nothing like Sri Lankan food. Very slow service, not clean. The toilet was disgusting. Left our food. The people on the next table sent their food back as the chicken was still raw.

I‘ve not only eaten in this restaurant, they also provide rooms for the night. Wanted to stay here for one night, in the end I stayed for four nights. The rooms are quite simple but therefore really affordable. What I liked the most where the...staff and the locals I met there. I had an amazing time with them, especially in the evenings when they sit together on the sofas to chill out. The stories and what you can learn from them about the country, the culture and lifestyle is just breathtaking. If you are up to get to know how the locals do, go to the royal top, take your time to speak, eat and drink with them and you will have an amazing time. They give you the feeling of beeing part of them and their family. I WILL FOR SURE COME BACK. Thanks for everythingMore

This is a very small business but our group of ten enjoyed a very scrumptious meal. They catered for my food allergies so I just had a plain omelette. Others in the group had rice encased in an omelette. It looked superb and they enjoyed...the taste. Presentation was great alsoMore

Right by the station. Exit the platform and turn right, it's on the left hand side. Good selection of food including breakfast if you're out and about early. We had the Vege fried rice, and the Rice with Curry. Both choices were excellent, especially the...small bowls of different curries that came with the rice. No alcohol that I noticed, but a good selection of other drinks available. Service was quick, and English is spoken. Nice touch too, was the sparrow nest in a cardboard box on the rafters.More

One man for whole restaurant. He was serving, ordering and cooking and he couldn't hendle it. We waited for 20 minutes before he even noticed us and than another 30 minutes before he actually brought us our food. It was quite expensive and not really...good. There are not many oportunites in Haputale but I suggest you try finding something else.More
