Walked round the inside colonnade and visited Luv Us Boutique and later that evening the Ministry of Crab restaurant. Good to see how well preserved is this old building and the clever use that has been made of it - boutique, bars, tea shop and restaurants. Well worth a visit.

Very nice area for shopping, eating or drinking. When we passed through there one night, there was live music! Really impressive how they turned an old hospital into a shopping area. It's a beautiful building.

A must visit place for all the tourists. It was not really crowded, though. We went here for lunch during our visit. Although, there were not many shops.

Walking in the fresh air on a lonely Friday evening, cannot find a better place for a sopping complex in the boundaries of Colombo

Its a very expensive place flooded with tourists. Not much presence of luxury brands here. I would say after reading reviews on TA and been there this place is overhyped not worth a visit.

The complex has many expensive stores with not so interesting merchandise, and some expensive restaurants for tourists. Not worth the trip unless you want to spend 15 minutes walking through.
