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.

We stopped at the Cricket Club on our trip to Colombo for Lunch. The owner is super friendly and spent some quality time with us discussing her family, background of the restaurant and gave us suggestions for the food. The food was good. Definitely a...good place to stop by for lunch/dinner.More

What a disappointment! When we were told that the owners are Australian, we walked in with high expectations. We had dinner at the air conditioned section. With the heat in Colombo, the wall type AC’s weren’t sufficient enough so we asked for the fans to...be switched on. Unfortunately, two fans out of three were defective. Servers have a complete “don’t care” mentality . We had to remind them multiple times for water. When they did bring the water, the glass gets handed over to each of us where the server leans over the table. What happened to servers etiquette? Same thing with cutlery and tissues. Very average food. Wouldn’t recommend this place.More

We was so glad we found this place in Colombo! Aside from all the interesting cricket and Barmy Army memorabilia, the food and drinks were AMAZING! We loved the beef and guiness and chicken and mushroom pies- absolute bliss after 3 weeks of eating mainly...sri lanka food! We met the lovely Raj - a true gentleman and so knowledgeable! We enjoyed it so much, we came back the next night! 😍More

A great find more so if you like cricket. The food is typical pub food but the atmosphere and the friendliness of the owners is what makes this place. Their collection of cricket memorabilia is very interesting. We visited this place twice during out stay...in Colombo. Since we are English, the only problem for us is the fact that it is Aussie owned :-D but we were prepared to over look this, just!More

We had come to see the IPL semifinal match between GT and MI. After a few drinks, we continued on to dinner. The restaurant has a wonderful ambience and has been themed with images of cricket throughout. old photographs, cricket bats, and many other items....The meal we ate was excellent, and the service was equally excellent. Definitely, we'll be back!More

The service was very poor. Drink orders were taken as we arrived and it took close to an hour for the drinks to arrive, surprising because it was only a couple of juices and beer. The seafood platter was a BIG disappointment. We've certainly had...it before and this time it was absolutely horrible. The crab was stale. The prawns were bland. Coleslaw was a joke, tasteless. The cuttlefish looked dehydrated and tasted as if it was cooked in old oil. After this we ordered Garlic prawns with rice, which was also horrible. Undercooked prawns, bland. Accompanying veggies were tasteless and raw. Overall, very poor experience and so sad as we have had many good experiences with cricket club over the years.More

Thinking of ordering in? Sometimes the dishes from here are great value, tasty and nutritious. But, if you order the same thing again expecting the same value, you could be disappointed. I ordered the grilled chicken once ; there was more chicken than I could...possibly eat and the vegetables were fresh and crisp bean and carrot sticks tied together in little bouquets ....yum! I ordered it again and I got two tiny pieces of chicken and the vegetables were the typical shredded everything that was cheap at the market that day. Work on keeping up the standard CC....we know you can do it but we aren't prepared to waste our money if you don't.More
