We had dinner and breakfast there. Dinner offers both ala carte and a generous spread of local and western cuisines. Chef Shammu is ever present to introduce and go into individual details of the buffet spread offered, while being entertained by live background piano playing music. You will also notice some old tea factory tools or parts of machinery creatively... More

We dined in the Hotel restaurant during our 1 night stay in Septmeber 2016. It was a buffet Restaurant which served numerous dishes. I tried most of these and found the food to be beautiful. We also enjoyed our breakfast the following morning.

The view is amazing, the building is beautiful, you feel as an old english guy coming for dealing with tea, 2 centuries before. But, the rooms are a bit old and need a bit a fresh up, the food is a bit too "world wide" and the bill a bit heavy. However, superb place to stay to discover tea fields.... More

A buffet to meet any taste and dietary need. Curries were delicious, desserts were not so, but it's a genuine thing across all Sri Lankan restaurants.

The choice was between a Sri Lankan buffet and a five course meal. We went ahead with the latter. The food was very good and the price quite reasonable. Presentation was nice. Service superb! The restaurant and the surroundings were wonderfully calm and relaxing and had the true feel of Nuwaraeliya. Would loved to have come for the dinner buffet,... More

Rest in one of the Lounges, have a gin and tonic and enjoy the log fires in the evenings before dinner. Make sure you don't nod off to sleep though

This restaurant is in the Heritance Tea Factory hotel. The buffet lunch we had was great. Lots of western style meats, roast lamb, barbecue chicken, plenty of local curries, salads, cheese selection and a broad range of desserts. The room has a really high quality feel in the refurbished old Tea Factory. It's quirky, but quality. The food was all... More
