I use to go there for a 'yard of tea'. Now the restaurant is very flash, clean with good service. I asked for tea & was presented with a lovely big pot. Sadly no yard of tea, but the place was worth the visit.

When I was a kid growing up in Kandy town there were only two decent restaurants: Paivas and Elephant House Cafe. A few days ago, I re-entered Paiva's Restaurant after 47 years!
The ambience was welcoming. Air conditioning the best in Kandy. The staff were overtly caring. My table of choice was perfectly laid out with its cutlery and crockery. The prices were just right! Last but not least, my Jumbo burger was fabulous!
Sadly, in the time I was inside I saw at least half dozen tourist look at the Outside Board pause but walk on. After my meal I stood outside and looked at what these tourist were unimpressed with. There needs to be cut out boards advertising the Specials and (perhaps) a Sri Lankan buffet?!

I remember walking to Paivais with my mother after church every Sunday to by their delicious Sunday special biryani. This was around 10-15 years back but I can still recall the excitement I had over their food.

Paiva's have been a name in catering in Sri Lanka for over 50 years. They have a restaurant in Kandy, serving typical Sri Lnkan food. The place is for locals and can be hot and typical. However the food is excellent and is ideal to take away. Light snakcs for lunch or for simply sitting by the lake is ideal. I enjoyed the food very much and found it inexpensive and tasty
