Robata Grill @ Mövenpick Hotel Colombo

Located at: 24, Dharmapala Mawatha, Colombo 07, Sri Lanka Visited on: 17 March, 2022 Robata Grill at Mövenpick Colombo serves up an array of Asian flavours that cover Japanese, Malaysian, Thai, Vietnamese and other Far Eastern cuisines. We started off with some Tom Yum Talay (LKR 790). It was quite spicy, but good to get our…

The Viewing Gallery @ Jetwing Lake Dambulla

Located at: Wijaya Kumaratunga Mawatha, Yapagama, Dambulla, Sri Lanka Visited on: 11 March, 2022 Jetwing Lake Dambulla was an unplanned but welcome stop on a rather hot day in this part of the island. The hotel, as a whole, provided a serene environment to recharge ourselves, and The Viewing Gallery restaurant offered a breezy and scenic…

Emperor’s Wok

Located at: Hilton Colombo, 2 Sir Chittampalam A. Gardiner Mawatha, Colombo 02, Sri Lanka Visited on: 16 February, 2022 Emperor’s Wok has been one of the city’s favourite Chinese restaurants for a long time with its tastefully done contemporary interior, and friendly and attentive staff. We headed there for lunch on this particular day, and started…

Blue Lagoon @ Jetwing Lagoon

Located at: Pamunugama Road, Thalahena, Negombo, Sri Lanka Visited on: 07 January, 2022 An impromptu decision to have a bit of crab led us to the beautiful Jetwing Lagoon hotel on the first Friday afternoon of the year. The drive there is a scenic one dotted with several colonial-era churches, quiet, spaced-out houses, and sporadic views…

Lagoon Kitchen Lamprais

Located at: 1B Pitipana Road, Sarakkuwa, Pamunugama, Negombo, Sri Lanka Visited on: 15 Aug, 2020 Here comes another lamprais review! This time it’s from Lagoon Kitchen, located in Pamunugama. Much to our delight, the food was delivered to our doorstep – something that’s not too common for us here in Ja-ela! Their chicken lamprais is priced…

The Fab – Lumprais

Located at: 41/2, Negombo Road, Kandana, Sri Lanka Visited on: 09 Dec, 2018 Yes, they’ve opened a branch up in this neck of the woods, and we thought we’ll give their lumprais a try. The chicken lumprais (LKR 440) was mediocre, and wasn’t exactly value for money given that the likes of VOC Café and BreadTalk…

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…
