Dropped in for breakfast with family end August on the way to Kandy from Colombo Parking is available. That is one of the good things about this place compared to other places to eat on the Colombo Kandy road. Most of the other places have only a few roadside parking spaces. Toilets were OK. Service was acceptable. Food was generally...

The only good thing about this restaurant is they had lovely cold LION beer! The only Lion beer we found during our entire Sri Lankan holiday. The service is bad, the food is poor and rather expensive. Looked to be many other lunch options on the other side of the street. The toilet facilities were good.

This is one of the few good restaurants that you can stop for lunch on the Kandy road. Situated nearly half way, lots of local and foreign travellers come for the breakfast, lunch & dinner buffets of this hotel. We were there for lunch on two times, while travelling from Kandy. The buffet served a variety of western and Sri...

After a tiring 6hour drive (on last Sunday) from Dambulla via Kandy, we stopped here at 8pm in the night for a break and have a good dinner. From the time we sat down in the verandah, the guy who served us responded in a manner to ensure that we walk away without dining there. He first said no string-hoppers...

On our family holiday, we stopped here for breakfast on our way from Colombo to Kandy. The buffet spread was so pathetic that we decided to give it a pass. The restaurant only has a set buffet and no ala carte. The staff is unprofessional with a careless attitude. We decided to have just bottled water and soft drinks before...

I'm not reviewing any stay, only the restaurant - we stopped here for a short breakfast and everything was ok: good food, nice terrace. The service was rather slowish.. but nothing really to complain about. The buffet choices war somehow limited, not much to choose from, but all in all it was good.
