It is a very cosy place and serves good quality Lankan cuisine. But the building is such that it makes it feel a little dingy. A little refurbishment will definitely take this place a long way.

Stayed in Colombo for 4 nights and had been looking for safe genuine value Sri Lankan food. We found it here. After 2 visits to places that served very western food we were finally able to enjoy some Sri Lankan delights at Green Cabin. Their Cheese Kottu is delightful, their curries great, service really good, staff really friendly and best of all you don't get hit by the myriad of taxes other restaurants charge - just the 10% service and not the mysterious VAT and City Tax. We went back for our final meal, before catching a late night flight - confident we'd be fine.
Happily recommend.

You have to go to Green Cabin!

It has been there forever looks the same and some of the waiters must have been there from the start.

Food is okay - the hoppers and baked crab are particularly good. But the reason that you need to go is the service.

It is an old fashioned place used mainly by locals so it lags way behind the good dinning experience to be found in the 5 star hotels. However, if you are not in a rush, for a relaxed informal meal, when you don't mind what order or when your courses come or what the waiters bring (always with a smile) you will have an unforgettable experience.

I love it!
