This has been my all the time favorite restaurant since childhood. Devon is the place to try a great selection of Sri Lankan "short eats", bread and other bakery products. They also have delicious cakes and several other sweets. Special orders are also under taken and the dining room offers a Sri Lankan and a variety of international food.

We were very hungry and went to Devon restaurant because it looked like a nice place to have lunch. It was a huge mistake - the service was so slow (we waited for our order at least 45min), rice was everything but fresh and tasty and meat looked like it was few days old. Also, our table and dishes were... More

We waited for the food for an hour and we got filthy dishes and food was awful: it seemed like several days old! We left the restaurant immediately and went to another place.

Big selection of Chinese and local food specialities, where you can choose single items - in contrast to similar buffet places, which only offer fixed meals. We do not eat rice and could choose from several vegetable and meat/fish dishes. Staff and service extremely friendly.

A very decent restaurant. Commendable service and good choice of food. The prices too are very reasonable. Very clean and friendly atmosphere in the city centre.

I've been here at lunchtime and the curries were tasty but service slow. Recently went at about 7pm and it was the worst eating experience I've had in a long time. Food poor quality and not fresh. It seems that they were serving much better quality food to locals and assuming anyone else was a tourist who they'd never see... More

Not sure why this place is recommended. Maybe it's great around lunchtime but around 7pm it's not. The Devilled Chicken had as much taste as the worst Chinese takeaway back in the U.K. Along with lacking any taste the chicken was rock hard, as though it had been cooking since lunchtime. A Devilled Pork Biriyani fared no better. A huge... More

We Visited the Devon Restaurant in January 2017 on two occasions both times in the evening. The food was very good and the waiters advised us what to choose, nice atmosphere with a mix of locals and tourists eating there.

Went there around 3pm. Really really slow service. Ordered spicy chicken pasta and fried rice with devon special vegetable sambol, apple and mango juice. Waited the food almost for an hour. Pasta was tasteless and cold. Fried rice had the same horrible sauce (tasted like a tomato ketchup) as in chicken pasta. Vegetables were hard and really really tasteless. Juices... More
