Great view, not a particularly pleasant crowd. All white and mostly British/Spanish tourists. Was a bummer to find after walking up a big steep hill in the rain for a drink!

Ended up eating here twice during our stay in Kandy. Food is good and choises are extensive (Western and Asian). Even serving several types of lager (must be due to the Brittish owner)! View of Kandy is spectacular!

Great Asian food, nice view of the city, very friendly owner and good service. Not cheap but absolutely reasonably priced. We are there three evenings in a row.
