We needed somewhere to eat on a Sunday as our guesthouse restaurant was closed, and this place came recommended in the guidebook. It's about a ten minute walk from The Temple of the Tooth, but on a quiet road back from the lake. You have to climb three floors up to get to the restaurant. The only other diners were a local family, other than that the place was empty but it was 8pm on a Sunday before a poya day.
We originally asked for the Traditional Rice and Curry as this seemed most authentic of all the dishes on the menu but we were told it wasn't available - all the other dishes were a good 200-300R more expensive so this did seem a bit suspicious to us but we gave them the benefit of the doubt. We ordered the Chicken Biryani which seemed as though the chicken and rice was cooked separately which is not the normal way to cook this. Nevertheless it was tasty and given we were the only ones there, the food came out in around 10mins. All in all pretty average, not the best meal we had in Kandy but it wasn't terrible either and we ate everything on our plates. The decor was interesting enough - lots of black and white photos of Kandy and its history.
