The quality of food, service, choice and ambience is really good at this restaurant located at The Cinnamon Grand Hotel. We experienced the 6 course set menu and were not disappointed. The standard of cuisine and service are hard to surpass in the city of Colombo.

As far as I can remember even when the old Oberoi hotel was there " London Grill " restaurant exists. Being a fine dinning restaurant prices are high though. We tried the Cinnamon Breeze and Fruity Mojito mock tails which were both super. I was not blown away with the starter dish Ravioli with crab though some trip advisor reviewers... More

This is a formal restaurant with high quality food and formal service with a dress code. The food is very affordable by Western standards and everything we ordered was very good. There were good vegetarian options. Some highlights are that they make you a salad live next to your table, and they have a live pianist. The servers were great.... More

The London Grill at the Cinnamon Grand Hotel has been one of my favourite restaurants in Colombo since I came here 17 years ago. The food is exquisite as always (try their Lobster Bisque!), with the best (imported) steaks served anywhere in Sri Lanka, and I rate them among the top steak restaurants in Asia. Yesterday's experience was no different... More

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
