A few things I expect from a higher end restaurant that bills itself as a steakhouse are: a good martini; hearty onion soup or caesar salad; and a nice thick steak. I ordered a very dry martini. It had been made with what seemed like half vermouth and half vodka, and I returned this for some wine instead. The onions... More

The London Grill was not busy on the night we visited as s group of 8 which meant very attentive service and uninterrupted keyboard plinking from the entertainment. Despite a rather odd smell of diesel or maybe very strong polish which seemed to infect the whole of the ground floor of the hotel the food I. The London Grill was... More

Twice I have been and twice I've had some two outstanding meals. The service can't be beat and it was the best I received in Colombo. The waiters and the manager offer impeccable service and recommendations. I throughly enjoyed the steak tartar, foie gras, steak and wine I had here. If you are in Colombo and craving a steak and...

36000 rupies for a dinner for three of this quality is just remarkable. We had starter, main course and desert and enjoyed every second of it. This was our third visit, and London Grill keeps delivering time after time.

It was a normal week day and no rush, but the staff was very lethargic. Certain items ordered was said to be not available after a while.

Wonderful place to have a good steak. I went there with my girlfriend to have dinner and we had rack of lamb and a beef steak which was excellent and the service staff ( mohan . Rushan . Shenal) was given us a excellent service which we will never forget.

The restaurant aesthetics were top notch. I visited the place for a client dinner and was amazed by the aesthetics. We ordered starters, mains and deserts only, but to our delight the chef gave many compliments during our dining experience which we enjoyed. However the food was not as extravagant as its price tag. That is the only reason I... More

Dinner was unexpectedly good. My lobster bisque flambé was prepared right before me...much to my surprise. The little touches like amuse bouche, sweets and sorbet were like the cherries on a cake. The ambience was wonderful with a gentleman playing the piano and service was impeccable thanks to the guys with great attention...Ariffin, Travig and Shanal. The chefs who prepared... More
