Cafe Asiana is an established affordable restaurant down Hill Street that, as the name suggests, serves Sri Lankanized Asian food - their portions are huge and their seafood is spicy and delicious.
Tang Dynasty is one of the most authentic ones we've been to, the interior is amazing and the food is top notch.
Xilaton is a Chinese restaurant in Bambalapitiya - the service is good and so is the food. We're especially fans of their hot garlic prawns which - get this - are slathered in cheese.
Peach Valley is an old favourite when it comes to Sri Lankanized Chinese in Colombo. While the food itself hasn't changed much the recent renovations have done a great deal to help the look and feel…
Rasa Malaysia is a relatively new restaurant down the Mount Lavinia beach stretch, alongside common beach food names like Steam Boat and Loon Tao. The ambience by the beach is obviously awesome, and the food…
Dinemore in Wellawatte by the sea has got their signature oozing-mayo subs and burgers, with a relaxing view of the ocean.
A chilled out place in the heart of Colombo for a nibble and drink after work with friends, which doesn't require you to dress up or shell out serious dough.
Great Wall has been around for a while now, but they're mostly known for their take out. We dropped by for lunch to see how they match up against the growing number of Chinese restaurants in Colombo.
We had a great time here. It's a friendly spot on the beach, very near Colombo, with good Chinese food. Doesn't get much better.
Spice Coast has good Indian food on Marine Drive. We personally think this is an ideal place for Indian takeaway/delivery and not a bad place to dine in.
Long Feng has good service, but the food just doesn't push it far enough. It's fairly average Chinese, and within this hotel it should be more.
Yue Chuan is a fine dining Chinese restaurant located at the Kingsbury hotel. The food is good, but not excellent.
Tsing Tao is a fine dinning Chinese restaurant that strikes a good a balance between authentic and Sri Lankanized Chinese, in a chic and elegant setting.
Loon Tao, roughly meaning "Way of the Dragon" has lost its claim as a top contender in the Chinese restaurant racket.
Shanghai Terrace is a Chinese Restaurant that recently opened up in Ethul Kotte. They serve up some good looking Chinese food at a reasonable price. There is a charming little terrace on the roof…
Ace Pub is a great rooftop bar located above the Steam Boat/Naniyori restaurant building in Nawala. It's got a lovely view of the city at night and they serve reasonably priced drinks, inoffensive…
Sri Lanka’s favourite submarine is probably that at Dinemore. This fast food franchise has been around for quite a while, and by the looks of it they’ve expanded and opened up many…
The Lion Pub has the best entrance of any bar in Colombo and really cheap beer and good food in large portions
Jade Restaurant has been around for a few years now. Serving up a range of delicious Sri Lankanized Chinese fare, their menu is all improved and affordable.
if youre one of those who've not ventured further into Fort than a night at Dutch-Hos, this is a good place to start.
If you’re passing through or spending some time in the second city and looking for a place to eat that isn’t Devon or the Muslim Hotel- try this.
Sunlight Garden is not one of the most popular Chinese restaurants in Colombo, but we don't really understand why. They've got good food, huge portions and great value for money.
They do chicken biryani pretty darn good and now have crab and lamb on the menu.
Besides one dish, Moon River gave us nothing to be happy about. We honestly cannot recommend it with all the new alternatives in Colombo.
