We saw this place in the daytime and were not impressed! However after dark things get much better with excellent Chinese style food, good music and attentive boss! One of the locals was taken by the music and gave us all some amusement watching him dancing!

Good choice for a dinner with friends or family. Food is Chinese type and spicey. Deviled chicken is probably the best dish. Order your food before 9pm or the kitchen closes. You may have to wait in the back of the restaurant with a drink whilst a table becomes free. Otherwise a good overall experience, friendly staff and good service.

Called in 4pm for beer? One of only a few in my book. But they have to stop serving beer betwedn 2-5 probably because of the close proximity of the temple? Like other places. If you like sports bars, ex pat owned places them this is for you. Good view of town from veranda. Pool table. Preferred 'the pub' in... More

We were close by and decided to go and have a look, the walk up hill is really worth it. There is a spectacular view from this terrace. The service is super, menu great and food very very tasty. We had a great time here, we enjoyed our lunch, the music, the view and the company. Totally recommend.

Not much happens in Kandy by way of nightlife but slightly chilled brought in the new year in style with 3 DJs ! On a normal afternoon / night the place provides a breezy open deck with views over the lake... More

Food was reasonable, service enjoyable with a server with a good sense of humour. Price was reasonable. Seems more for younger folk.

The food is impeccable, great flavor and large portion sizes. The ambience is great and the service is above par. This is a regular place I visit when I'm in town and never disappointing. I tried the hot butter cuttle fish, kan kin, chopsuey rice....bliss.

This is a brilliant place to spend an evening chilling out. Brilliant tasty Chinese is what we chose and I especially liked the eggplant in a clay pot and peppers in black bean sauce. Service was swift and our waiter was pleasant. Music good as was the view. It is quite an easy walk from town; we are in our... More
