Situated within one of the most touristy places in Kandy, yet still serves great food! We ordered a burger but it came with a Sri Lankan touch.

The Empire is a retreat from the hustle and bustle of Kandy offering great quality drinks and European style food.

We came here at 7pm and found it fully occupied
We asked how much time and they said 50 mins and almost asked us not to wait
When we asked if they can put us on waitlist, they said they close at 8 30 so cannot
Next day we came early and asked if they can reserve a seat for us as we were with kids, they said we need to pay 1000 - and the attitude was like we don't care
Attached is the picture of the guy who misbehaved

After reading on TA and Lonely Planet decided to pop in there for dinner a couple of days ago. Staff is quite attentive and the decor is quite nice too but we ordered a chicken burger and the Empire Sri Lankan curry and rice. Chicken burger was Okish and the rice and curry weren't that good either and for the price there are better places around town to have a meal

The empire cafe is right off the square by the temple of the tooth in the empire hotel. It is actually in 2 rooms as you walk in. The food is more light, and it was delicious. Their homemade ice cream was also delicious as well. They had wifi and good views. Would highly recommend!
