From the owners of Rangala Guest House in Sri Lanka, The Kandyan is a unique and authentic Sri Lankan restaurant in North Bristol. Chef / Owner Sam cooks dishes flavoured with homegrown peppercorn, clove and mace from their own market garden in upcountry Sri Lanka. With home-roasted curry powder (Sam’s sister’s secret recipe), fresh coconut and Sam’s innovative methods inspired by tradition, there is nowhere in Bristol like it.
