Just returned home from a restaraunt ive been dying to visit for over a year! The Sovereign German Resaraunt, which is located in Nawala (Just a few metres away from my house) is simply sublime! I had my favourite, which is Chicken Cordon Bleu, and my Hubby enjoyed the Pot-roast Pork. Our dishes were accompanied with Mashed Potato, Mushroom and carrots. We also ordered a buttery rice on the side.
Drinks of choice was Mexican Beer! Unusual, i know but quite good. Much like Corona actually! They even popped a wedge of lime into the bottle :-)
About USD 12 per person, but fully worth every cent :-)
Favorite Dish: Chicken Cordon Bleu with buttered rice accompanyment.
Very good! Had freat food and service. Went to this restaurant twice and were happy both times. Good variety of dishes, including seafood and local sri-lankan cuisine.
Freindly, good service.
Favorite Dish: Rice and curry - Sri Lankan style
Located in beach, serves fresh sea food, sri lankan, western and eastern foods. Prices are reasonable and good place for chillout on the beach. Highly recommended.
Favorite Dish: We had lobster. It was delicious with vegetable rice and french fries.
We have dropped into this restaurant for breakfast on the way from the airport to Giritale.
Excellent traditional set up, the place is clean and well-kept.
Menu is quite rich, and mainly consists of Sri lankan curries and other typical local food.
We've chosen omelettes with toasts, few curries and fresh juices.
Food was good, however curries were a bit spicy for unaccustomed europeans :)
Favorite Dish: Omelettes, fresh juices
Let's face it - I'm not a fan of buffets.. usually the food is very indifferent and of no quality at all. Sadly this restaurant was not the exception. I guess I'll never understand why Sri Lankans are so fond if buffets
Favorite Dish: The usual buffet-style Sri Lankan dishes - hot, spicy and not very good tasting. There must be better Sri Lankan food than this. We were saved by some pasta. As for real Sri Lankan food... I'm still hoping to get around to atste it locally
This is one of many restaurants along the beach front in Unawatuna. The 3-wheel driver reccomended it to me. The tables or on the sand, with the surf not far away.
They serve a good variety of food and drinks. The service is good, as is the food.
Favorite Dish: Devilled Chicken
My 3-wheeler driver took me to this very nice restaurant.
It is a bit out of town, but a very good experience. It is situated next to Wedamedura Auyerveda.
I had a very good Rice and curry with chicken, at reasonable prices and good service. I can recommend this restaurant anytime!
Remember when ordering Rice with Curry, you get about 6 side dishes as well - so it quite a big meal!
The waiter took time to explain each dish to me.
Favorite Dish: Rice and Curry
i see many reviewers saying you can find rice and curry anywhere and its mostly spicy. many erupoion people were unhappy with there food just for this reason.
Sri lankan main food is rice and curry, but it does not mean that you cant find any other kind of food there. the most important thing is do your research. this will give u a good idea about the culture and food.
2 stay in a nice hotel and go to good resturents, not the ones you see on the road while you driving. if you go to a nice resturants, it will be little pricy but you will find the same kind of food you looking for but clean and less spicy. also many cheap road side eateries have pre made food, so there is a good chance you fill eat spicy food.
3 tell the waiter do not make your food spicy and they will be gald to accomedate you, and you will enjoy ur food.
After 2 nights in Colomobo we wondered how we would manage for food in sri Lanka..the Restaurants served only a very Bland TOURISTY VERSION of Sri Lankan food and we asked our driver enroute to our next destination that we wanted REAL lankan food and not some upmarket place serving passable cury and rice..so we were DELIGHTED when he stopped a bit worried at place which resembled a SHACK ..but he could see the hungry Glint in our eyes when we said ..this is a LANKAN DHABBHA!For Sri Lanakn Rupees 50-Rs 100 one could eat wonderful Lankan vegetarian food of about 6 dishes including all the lovely accompaniments.For Rs 50 more you could have some fish curry or fried fish!Even better -the food was cooked with wood fire and that was what gave it its great taste...Forget michigan restaurants..this is REAL FOOD!
This is a local place above a bakery in Aluthgama, it is owned by a German man and the food is excellent,from the outside it doesn't look very much ,but don't let that put you off. It is very cheap and the portions are enormous!!
Favorite Dish: Mixed Fried Rice, absolutely delicious.
the food was excellent, particularly the naans and paratha.
We walked around Colombo and most decent restaurants seemed to be in hotels but most only had buffets, we went to above to order ala carte and it was a good value overall.
Favorite Dish: cheese and garlic naan; spicy, cheesy and certain to make you breath curl peoples hair
Very nice and great experience if you had thai food in Sri Lanka. Not really the same you had in Thailand but better then nothing.Nice decor and excellent shopping mall.
Favorite Dish: Pad thai seafood and tom yam soup.
As for me, chinese cusine is a must if you reallt like chinese dishes. I had a great time and very excellent food in the restaurant. Nice staff and comfort place to dine.The variety of the menu is widely.
Favorite Dish: Chilli crab,claypot beancurd,stir fried chicken in drak chilli sauce and wanton soup. YUMMY..!!!
The foodcourt had alot to offer from different cuisine. Its cheap and nice. Crowded during weekend. Dont expect to have a seat upon your arrival.
Favorite Dish: There's a Thai stall that mostly promote thai dish. The tom Yam seafood soup not that bad. But here in Sri Lanka, the meal is really a big portion.
Try the Chicken Tom Yam Soup and Phai Thai. Cost around 300 rupees
Now if you're fond of Indian food, here's some good news for you. In culinary terms it shares much of its large neighbour.
Unfortunately I am not, so I found the local cuisine repetitive and hot, hot, hot.
What is to be found easily around is rice and curry. In fact everything (chicken, fish, meat) is with curry. If you don't want to have your palate burned always ask for "not hot" dish. More or less it will arrive just to what you can tolerate!!
Remember that despite you'll be provided with cutlery, locals prefer to eat with their fingers.
Unfortunately finding a proper place to have a meal is a always a trick as it seems that dining out is not common for Sri Lankans. So most of the times we found ourselves sticking to the guesthouse restaurant.
This is the closest hotel you can experience the Beach as you come to Colombo. Good food, good rooms...more
Very pleasant polite friendly front desk staff. Exceptionally efficient. Greeted with a warm towel...more
