Owner was amazing, showed us around and was very pleasant. Lots of interesting things. When we looked at different pieces we were explained if it were old and antique or if it was a newer copy.

We were on our honeymoon, looking for some coins for my collection. The only antique shop in Kandy with honest prices. Owner competent and courteous. I recommend it!
