This used to be one of the best restaurants for a snack in the hectic Kandy-Colombo road. Now it has deteriorated beyond imagination.
The options are very very limited. The chocolate cake and eclairs we ordered were stale and definitely “old”. The ice coffee and milk coffee were tasteless.

Overcharged for stale food. Really disappointed because previous experiences at this restaurant were really good.

This is a very good place to have a decent meal on your way to Kandy, Trincomalee, Batticaloa or Kurungala among many places. Good for Breakfast Lunch or Dinner quit quick & good service. Mostly Sri Lankan food available. Well prepared.

If you are travelling between Colombo and Kandy or Kandy to Colombo, the Avanhala at Warakapola (run by the Ceylon Tourist Board) is a great place to get a bite at reasonable price. Not the cleanest but cleaner than most other on the way. It has a bakery/snack section and a buffet section. The breakfast, lunch and dinner are good for the price. Less than $5 for the buffet. But you have to be early. Before 9 am for breakfast and by 2.00 pm for lunch. In between times there is a variety of pastries, snacks and sweets. The tea is good. The service is not bad. Recommended.

A group of 17 of us stopped here for breakfast on 1st December 2019. We served our choice from the buffet of Sri Lankan dishes including hoppers, string hoppers, milk rice, dosai and roast pan supplemented by dhal, fish, potato, coconut sambol etc. There were some fruits as well for dessert. Tea / coffee was served on to our table.
The restaurant was quite spacious and clean with no flies nor insects. The washrooms too were clean. The price of the buffet breakfast was Rs 550 per person.
Sri Lankan short-eats and cakes too were available.
It was a quick meal in a clean environment.
