    Green New: Tasty takeaway

    by jo104 Updated Mar 16, 2015

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Only 10-15min walk from the train station is the delightful green new café well its more of a catering place although there is a table and few chairs inside. So takeaway it is and they really do make delicious food. Two brothers work here and they are always smiling and eager to please. My standard request is for chicken salad and egg fried rice so tasty and really reasonably priced this will feed 2 people for LKR450. Other dishes I have tried have been equally yummy fried or devilled mushrooms, devilled chicken and chopcuey.

    They are very presentable young men and their shop is extremely clean full marks for takeaway.
    Update: The cafe has moved across the street and now has several tables and at lunch time they serve a rice and curry. Also selling very tasty shorties.

    The Pub: Excellent Location

    by Treshi Written Dec 2, 2014

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Excellent location for a drink or two specially in the evenings. Conveniently located in the heart of the city and patronized by a lot of westerners. The drinks and the service is very good. Highly recommend this place to chill out..

    Favorite Dish: Beer and all drinks..

    Royal Mall Food Court: Food Court

    by jo104 Written Jan 29, 2014

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are several chains of Royal Mall in kandy the food is designed for takeaway but at this establishment there is also a food court.

    We both ate from the set menu for LKR600 and enjoyed a dinner of vegetable fried rice with a spicy deviled chicken, fried egg (which was a bit rubbery) vegetable chocuey and chilli paste. A very acceptable meal. They have a restaurant that serves liquor but you will pay more for the same menu and it upstairs dining. The courtyard has its own little royal mall supermarket and other shops.

    Be careful in the parking lot as I almost got mowed down by a white van man.

    Mahaweli Reach Hotel: Mahaweli magic

    by jo104 Written Jan 25, 2014

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Christmas is not especially celebrated in Kandy not to mention that on the actual day you can’t get a drink anywhere. I opted to enjoy the celebrations on Christmas eve at the Mahaweli Reach hotel and I must say was not disappointed at all.

    As it was a special evening our meal cost Rs4000 a head net with a bottle of wine being almost as much (wine is expensive in sri lanka) We were seated on the outside terrace near the fishpond all prettily lit up, treated to a band, Christmas carols and santa claus even gave us all gifts I got a box of mackwoods tea and my date got a 50ml shot of international booze in a little bottle.

    The food was unbelievably good we started with salads and cold meats and yes they even had non processed cheeses wow I went mad. There was a good range of sushi & seafood although its not quite my thing. After 2 rounds of starters and worrying I had eaten a roll too many we decided it was time for the main affair. The carvery selection had beef, lamb, gammon, turkey and duck surprisingly no chicken but who cared it was all so tasty. I wish I had space for round 2 but sadly the 7 tables of desserts awaited us. Bon Bons, Christmas cake, mince pies, strudel, fruit salad, pettit fours, French fancies, mousses, lemon meraingue, shot glasses of tasty treats, trifle and more and more we never even got to sample the crepes and icecream.

    We plan to visit again soon I believe the usual buffet is around Rs2200 to Rs2500 per head. This time I will starve myself all day.

    Kandy Muslim Hotel: Cheese Kottu & Roast chicken

    by jo104 Written Jan 25, 2014

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Upstairs is the dining area and downstairs you can order takeaway roti or short eats.
    They close reasonably early in the evening and quite often run out of foods so do go early if its dinner you are after.
    I went for lunch and ordered beef macaroni as my friend is not too partial to beef and we are always eating chicken, I must say it was delicious and a great portion. After that we have had many takeaways of roasted chicken and chicken palandi curry which is fairly mild.
    The prices are incredibly reasonable and its clean and friendly service.

    Favorite Dish: Their roast chicken cheese roti is very tasty but normal chicken should be just as great.

    DJ's Restaurant: Good authentic Sri Lankan fare

    by anilpradhanshillong Updated Jan 30, 2012

    If you're in Kandy, don't miss out on the great Sri Lankan cuisine at DJ's Restaurant (Don Jerome Codippily). Next to the Ayurveda Wedagedara in the Deveni Rajasingha Mawatha area, it's a unique opportunity to experience authentic local fare. The distance from the city may be around 4/5 kms.

    We had gone there for lunch. So had quite a few tourists. You can either sit in an open but sheltered area or inside the restaurant. We chose the former and requested for a regular meal. We got coconut sambol, jackfruit, ochre, banana flowers, white radish, 'dal' (lentils), baby jackfruit, rice and chicken. It was a sumptuous spread. Along with a beer and a coke, the bill (2 persons) came to a mere LKR 1,430 or roughly US $ 14. There is a 10% Service Charge added to the bill.

    The Bake House: Cheap, good local food

    by PierreZA Written Jan 4, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    According to the Lonely Planet, The Bake House only has counter-service of pastries etc. But, there is actually a restaurant if you go inside.
    It seems to be very popular with locals. I had the best mango juice ever here - it was like putting a straw into a mango!
    They have several local dishes.
    Like in most places in Sri Lanka, service was very friendly.

    Favorite Dish: Devilled chicken - (It is quite HOT, but great!)

    DJ's: Good Local Rice and Curry

    by PierreZA Written Jan 4, 2010

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My 3-wheeler guide and driver reccomended this very nice restaurant.
    It is a bit out of town, situated next to Wedamedura Auyerveda.

    I had a very good Rice and curry with chicken, at reasonable prices and good service. I can recommend this restaurant anytime!

    Remember when ordering Rice with Curry, you get about 6 side dishes as well - so it quite a big meal!

    The waiter took time to explain each dish to me.

    Worth going there!

    Pinnalanda Restaurant: Watch the elephants bathe

    by chizz Written Apr 8, 2009

    The Pinnalanda Restaurant at Pinnawella Elephant Orphanage is a great place to go and watch the elephants bathe while you enjoy a bite to eat.
    It is located just across the road from the main entrance of the park and caters to the hoards of tourists who stop for lunch at the park.
    A lunch buffet is laid on daily and has the usual array of curries and rice and fruit to follow. I chose a sandwich from the menu which was tasty enough and around the same cost as the buffet.
    Prices are reasonable and staff are friendly.

    Favorite Dish: Buffet looked ok, sandwich was tasty.

  • Bougan villa Restaurant: Off the beaten track

    by dnbg Written Oct 2, 2008

    Great food, rustic surroundings, quiet ambience. If you want a restaurant that is far from the madding crowd, and serves great food, try the in-house restaurant of bougan villa guesthouse.

    You will eat in a light and airy dining room overlooking long verandahs, lawns and paddy fields beyond. You might even be eating rice from the paddy field you are looking at, as this place grows their own paddy. Much of the produce is local, and fresh.

    The cuisine is international--lots of pasta and rice dishes, with some very interesting asian/fusion appetisers.

    The location is about 7 miles from Kandy, off the Kandy-Gampola-Nuwara Eliya road, close to the Peradeniya Royal Botanical Gardens and the Gadaladeniya and Embekke temples. A good place to stop for lunch if you are taking in these sights, or on your way to Nuwara Eliya from Colombo.

    Favorite Dish: The avocado and shrimp appetiser--the flavours were subtle, and the avocado was just right--not too raw or too ripe. And it looked good too.

    Not knowing the restaurant, my driver drove me there so he could have his free meal, of course. A tourist oriented restaurant with inflated prices, food quality was alright. Rice and curry Rs400, Coke Rs60. It has excellent river view, a good lunch to celebrate my own birthday! :-)
