Atmosphere, food, and service were good. Food portions were very small and it was apparent that the restaurant is focusing on controlling the food cost rather than creating guest satisfaction, value for money and getting the repeated guests. It is a fact that guests coming to a fine dinning restaurant are expected to pay higher prices, but serving portions below... More

Had the baked lamb chops-- expected better but I guess this is as good as it can get in Colombo. Small portions. Service was initially good but it got slower and eventually reached snail speed towards the end of our meal. Expensive for Sri Lanka. Pitched as the ultimate fine dining experience in Sri Lanka. Me thinks not!! Could be... More

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.
