Our wonderful driver recommended we have dinner at Senani so we were happy to go. The food was delicious and the staff there was incredibly nice and helpful. Devinda helped us pick several delicious chicken dishes and tasty rices. He was great - he picked the best food and gave the best service! We hung out on their beautiful rooftop... More

I don't like being taken to places that I have not checked out myself first, our driver for the day took us here, the view is wonderful and the food was not too bad, maybe a little overpriced but that's splitting hairs. Chicken an cashews was good and was the Sri Lankan curry which was also slot of food. Try... More

Better than average somewhat overpriced food that become quite reasonable as Senani feeds your driver well for free. Huge walk up hill; much better to drive or take a cab or tuk tuk, even though going is slow due to narrow roads and too much traffic. Tip: eat at 11:15 or so and beat the rush hour. Get a table...

The food was tasteless and too pricey for what we got. It was recommended by the owner of the apartment we're staying in. The only two times the food's been a disappointment in Sri Lanka is when we've been recommended restaurants by people who works with tourists... Better rely on TripAdvisor!

Our driver brought us here for a late lunch - we'd never have found it on our own! It's outside the main city, allows great views over Kandy lake, St Paul's church etc. Menu is good, a bit pricey; we chose Sri Lankan curry, and it was great, well presented, very tasty.

Well the view from the top of the mountain is amazing. Nice place but to be honest I am not the biggest fan of their food and the service. Good place to be around in the evening with some friends. and I do not recommend to take a family there in the evening though.

I recently visited this restaurant as recommended by the hotel we were staying at down the road. Unfortunately the only nice thing was the view which was amazing. We arrived just before sunset so was perfect which is why I have given 2 stars. Me and my husband were vegetarian and the options were very limited. The noodles were too... More
