Shang Palace @ Shangri-La Colombo

Located at: 1 Galle Face, Colombo 02, Sri Lanka Visited on: 23 Oct, 2018 So far, I have, on more than one occasion, been rather unimpressed by the spread at Shangri-La’s Table One, so I was hoping (although I had heard otherwise) that Shang Palace might leave a better impression. The restaurant occupies a rather large…

Isso

Located at: 53 Ananda Coomaraswamy Mawatha, Colombo 03, Sri Lanka Visited on: 14 Oct, 2018 Their new flagship restaurant on Ananda Coomaraswamy Mawatha is modernly eye-catching and stood out noticeably against the dim late evening. We were contemplating a snack and ended up stopping for an early dinner. At Isso, you can either make your…

Off the Hook

Located at: Park Road, Colombo 05, Sri Lanka Visited on: 11 Oct, 2018 We made a lunch stop at Off the Hook since we were passing by. I was looking forward to having something Japanese off their menu. I had tried their Japanese pizza some time ago and remember being rather intrigued by the interesting…

Café Noir Blanc

Located at: 216 Rev. Muruththettuwe Ananda Nahimi Mawatha, Thimbirigasyaya, Colombo 05, Sri Lanka Visited on: 03 Oct, 2018 The unassuming appearance of Café Noir Blanc’s exterior is a contrast to the opulence of its interior. Tastefully decorated within a spacious set-up, the place exudes an almost luxurious yet cosy feel. The little al fresco area at…

Chambers @ Park Street Mews

Located at: 48D Park Street, Colombo 02, Sri Lanka Visited on: 15 Sep, 2018 Having recently opened its doors in Colombo, Chambers – located on twinkling, bustling Park Street – has a simple but cosy set-up with a few well-selected colourful décor that light up the rustic-ish interior. The cuisine is Maghrebi (Northwestern African)-Arabic, so to…

Caramel Pumpkin (Part 02)

Located at: 38 Ward Place, Colombo 07, Sri Lanka Visited on: 12 Sep, 2018 I had already tasted a couple of dishes from here before, so I thought of trying out a few new things this time. However, I did stick with the delicious beverage that I (thoroughly) enjoyed on my first visit – The…

Dolce Italia (Part 02)

Located at: 5 Skelton Road, Colombo 05, Sri Lanka Visited on: 04 Sep, 2018 Visiting again after a while, I thought of trying something other than pizza this time. But first, I needed to rehydrate – a Lime and Mint fresh juice (LKR 400) was my choice. I like the fact that they prepare this without…

Royal Thai @ Cinnamon Lakeside

Located at: 115 Sir Chittampalam A Gardiner Mawatha, Colombo 02, Sri Lanka Visited on: 20 Aug, 2018 We were in the area on the day and decided to try out Royal Thai’s Lunch Set Menu. They serve this offer on weekdays and Saturdays from noon to 3.00 pm at a rate of LKR 1,955 nett per…

Café Sociale

Located at: 252A Galle Road, Colombo 04, Sri Lanka Visited on: 21 Jul, 2018 This place had been popping up on my newsfeeds for a while and I was quite curious to try it out. So off we went on a smoulderingly hot afternoon to fill our bellies. The first thing that strikes you about…
