“Excellent Lamb curry with the best view”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

This hotel must have the best view in Colombo. what a beautiful place to enjoy the sunset while having a DELICIOUS lamb curry like we both had. Cooked to perfection, not too hot or too mild and all the ingredients stood out as proper fresh.

A definate recommend!

“Dine with traditions”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

I'm vegan - so it's always a bit of a challenge to eat a set menu. But no problem here - the kitchen staff adapted everything or served something else instead, so that I too could enjoy my meal. The choice they offered could have been a bit more typical Sri Lankan though.

The only bad point: air condition much too cold (felt like + 15°C but may have been on +20°C which is still too much difference to the lovely +30°C outside)
