Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Nice shops, bars and restaurants are there. But I felt that all are formal rather than live and buzzing happy go lucky atmosphere is missing.

    Decent mall with most things you might want. Not far from Columbo Fort station so we did a shopping trip between trains. One toilet did not have toilet paper. housekeeping take note!

    I’m a regular at good market and enjoy my weekly visits to buy our supply of natural, healthy, organic food. My purchases include but not limited to fresh fruits & veges, juicy lemons, king coconuts, pure bee's honey, kitul jaggery & honey. My favourite stall at good market is “Soul Food” run by the ever so beautiful, warm & friendly couple Ina & Saliya! I not only get my almond milk & almond butter plus the occasional yummy desserts, which are of utmost quality and value for money, but Ina also shares some valuable health tips, motivating you to live healthier. Ina & Saliya are truly amazing!

    A colonial period square with huge open space in the surroundings. Arcade mall on one side, a completely colonial style building with a few high end stores, was almost deserted on a Saturday. There were a few families in the independence square who were jogging, exercising, walking and kids were playing. Do visit if you have time, nothing spectacular !

    Super spot for shopping in Colombo. Loved the Scooe cinema on the 3rd floor and PlayTrix sports bar is another place you must visit if you visit Colombo city center. They’ve got their own residence as well. One of the best shopping malls in Colombo.

    If your hotel is close by and you’re looking for a supermarket, there’s a great Keell’s on the lower ground floor. The rest of the mall is pretty neat with some nice stores including a small branch of Luv SL. One of the better malls in the area and not crammed full of high-end branded stores selling stuff you can’t possibly afford.

    Away from the congested metropolis "The Factory Outlet" is at a convenient place to look for ready-made garments. With ample parking the store has a vast display of cloths for an entire family. Men's section was in the upstairs while women and children cloths were found in the downstairs together with loads of other accessories catering to different tastes. I found several cargo shorts which fitted me well and within my budget. Service was very courteous with many helpers around to assist.

    Good place for shopping branded stuff. You get toys bags, stationaries, men and womens clothing ad lingery and all are big brands. But was quite messed up not arrangeded size wise and limited fitting rooms. Still one visit is advisable.

    I was in Sri Lanka for a holiday but was travelling around the country so had very limited time in Colombo. I knew I wanted a teal sapphire ring so set about researching, looking for a reputable jewellers and came across Salies. I contacted Isam via WhatsApp in advance of my travels with a bunch of photos of the types of ring I liked and a request for a teal sapphire and they did the rest. They sent me various options of ring designs and sapphire colours, along with costs for each type and we took it from there. They were very patient with my decision making, insisting that I must love whatever I chose.

    In the end, I selected a beautiful teal sapphire with diamond accents, set in white gold. Isam and Shazi were absolutely amazing when I was delayed reaching Colombo from Galle, and kept the shop open late for me, and made sure I was totally happy with the ring and that the fit was great before I left. I am thoroughly in love with my new ring and would not hesitate to recommend Salies and if I am ever back in Colombo, I will more certainly be paying another visit to their beautiful store.

    This is a must go, if ur in Colombo.. a sacred place in the hectic city. The gallery is part of an breathtaking open house, with a stunning garden in the middle of it all.

    As soon as u enter, you will be very warmly welcomed by the lovely family who lives there.

    The husband who is the artist, will guide you thru all his work. And he made his art accessible for everyone. Since you can leave the gallery with a poster or an original art piece. So it’s all up to you how u will enrich ur own home.

    We was even that lucky, to be able to book a yoga session with the wife who is also a yoga teacher and sound healer.

    Just wow.
    Don’t leave Colombo without stopping by.
