The food is ok, not excellent. Staff are really really friendly and polite. The view was stunning. They had a considerable quantity of food for the dinner buffet. But lacked mains. Salad and dessert were sufficient. Totally, it is a cool place to hangout with friends or family because the dinner runs from 7 pm (i presume, i forgot :P ) till 12 midnight. :D:D:D

Table provided as is not table
Food is not that good as expected

There were variety of foods to be chosen but I should say it lack of delicious. They had lot of deserts and Starters. But lack of main foods. For me it was a disappointment. If you are staying in a hotel it might suit you for formal dining. But i don't think it is worth a visit just for food

Please make reservation before you go.

I enjoyed this newly opened venue recently. New, fresh, stylish (with lovely red chairs), cozy tea and cake area. I was told their fish restaurant is marvelous and the view, right at the ocean is great. Do recommend visiting.

We started our trip through Sri Lanka in the Cinnamon Grand Hotel and stayed in the Kingsbury at the end . Therefore we can very well compare both hotels. We enjoyed the Cinnamon Hotel a lot, but the Kingsbury was in most aspects the better choice . From the moment we arrived, we enjoyed a very well trained and extraordinary friendly staff who looked after us and assisted us like old friends.But his was our first stay ! Checking in was the fastetst and friendliest service on our whole trip , food in the restaurants exceeded our meals in the Cinnamon (Enormous lunchtime buffet for 2200 Rupies, very chic ,modern Chinese restaurant with incredible preparations for dinner ) . The rooms are very comfortable : excellent matresses, a real duvet cover , bathrooms with Bulgari products and a view over the Indian Ocean . The swimming pool is open now and most of the renovations have been finished. We were highly surprised about the quality of the new Kingsbury, having read the biased reviews on TA from former times . On our next trip we will book the Kingsbury again . Highly recommended !

Newly improved hotel looks very grand, but they need to do something about the grand looking chairs, it scares you! The bar at Kingsburry is huge, but the staff needs a lot of training. they tend to get scared and runaway and never come back with your order. Dinner was great, huge spread with lot of action stations, i must say, its real value for money. but service is unbelievably slow and the staff is hopeless with any help with the menus or the spread. Like the sea food and grilled items they have. The deserts were very disappointing. The staff do not allow you to finish your requirement, you can easily scare them away for no reason.
Don't try to make a reservation over the phone, they do not like phones!
