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.

Our driver brought us here while on our way to our hotel. The ambience is amazing and the food is mouth watering. We had a meal of Dhall and Curry and it was very wholesome and yummy. The price was also reasonable (325 LKR). Serves both Veg and Non-Veg options.

The ambiance was good but the prices were high considering that food was just decent. One has to climb 3 floors to reach it.

We spent some good time there reading and watching all the exhibits on the walls.It is an interesting place to see some of the photos from 1800's Sri Lanka.Food tastes average.It is good if we could order Sri Lankan food while enjoying the historical exhibits of Sri Lanka.We found their menu is with other cuisines such as Indian,Chinese etc...
However,they also offer a Sri Lankan Buffet during the weekends.
