Unfortunately this place has no toilet within the restaurant. You will have to use the dirty public toilet outside of the restaurant. These toilet floors are always wet and the wet floor water catches on to your long skits and dresses. No toilet paper or hand tissues. And the funny thing is you have to pay Rs; 20.00 per person to use these wet smelly dirty toilets. I like the restaurant for their food. But very disappointed for them for not having a proper clean toilet for a lady to use. How sad.

Hi Viranga, We understand your pain. We have brought this up with our landlord and now have access to a special toilet that is well maintained! Please ask any server and they will make sure you have access to that toilet. Thanks for the feedback.

Asylum is a nice little chill spot in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Colombo. The interior decoration of this place is fabulous. The atmosphere is both cozy and comfortable.
The food is great in my opinion. the Paella is unique and quite tasty. The pizzas were also light and good in taste. Drinks were simply super.
The service providers could be a little more friendlier. Overall, a pretty nice place

Had dinner & drinks here few days ago. The atmosphere is very good. The staff was courteous & efficient , specially Shashi who served us. The Margharitas were the real deal. The Pork chop was the best I have had in Sri Lanka, thick, moist & succulent... Will come again just for the pork chop....

Great ambiance and location. The music was fantastic! Fortunately the restaurant wasn't crowded so we were able to get a table towards the back so the music wasn't too loud.

They have a good selection of drinks and their Virgin Mojito was one of the best we've had!

The menu is fairly limited and frankly the food was unimpressive. We ordered pork chops and they were extremely tough and nothing to write home about. On the plus side the bread brought to the table was quite delicious!
