We found Sharon's Inn in our guide book and booked a table for 3 people through our hotel. We had a very warm welcome on arrival. The service was great and we had our drinks right away while waiting for the buffet to start at 7:30. The meal started with a delicious veg soup then onto a generous mix of... More

Probably my favourite meal in Sri Lanka. I stayed here for three nights and decided to try this buffet dinner since it was recommended not only my Lonely Planet, but by the guy at the front desk who kindly let me know that I had to reserve if I was thinking of it for dinner. I didn't quite know what... More

The best food we had whilst here in Kandy. Delightful view too. I am usually put off by buffet style restaurants but it really didn't matter, everything tastes fresh. The aubergine curry and mango curry were especially good. I was however completely livid when they told me they had run out of alcohol and I planned on giving them four... More

It was a hike to walk up to Sharon Inn for dinner but it was worth the hike. We got there a little early and had a beer on the roof top deck. It was slow season so we ate downstairs. The coconut chuney was some of the best we had in Sri Lanka and the hosts were very friendly... More

Food is AMAZING, all types of local curry served by a super friendly staff!! When I finished dinner it was late so there were no tuk tuk so the owner took me to my hotel by car. I will definitely come back!!

Good choice for vegetarians as they serve a lot of different curries. Normally I am not a big fan of buffet style eat-outs but this was a good one! Aubergine and beetroot curries were the best. Only thing I missed was fresh juices as drinks were generally expensive.

Loved our dinner here. We arrived really early as after seeing a dance show we came out to find it was raining and couldn't walk to a bar for a drink first as planned. But no problem as we were able to go straight up to the roof, pick a table with a great view and order a bottle of... More

Everyone is served at the same time - we had vegetable soup to start and then there was a range of tasty different curries all vegetarian and they came round separately with the chicken curry. It was nice to get away from standard hotel food and have something a bit different .... Jackfruit was very tasty ! There was also... More

After travelling around Sri Lanka for a month (family with 3 children), this was the best restaurant experience. Owners and staff were very friendly, the view at the lake and mountains was very nice and the food of course was great!
