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.
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.
Chopsticks is another spot that we love. It's quiet, unassuming and dishes up some bomb Sino-Lankan food fare.
Even without the exclusively Chinese clientele and waiting staff you'd know it was a mainland restaurant from the quality of the tofu- just softer and silkier than locally-run restaurants can achieve.
Machang Nawala is at Nugegoda now. After the untimely death of their Nawala branch, Machang has claimed a new spot down Stanley Thilakeratne Mawatha.
168 Sea Food Palace is a veteran among Chinese eateries in Colombo and is still hugely popular among locals. They do a decent take on Sri Lankan Chinese with efficient, but the place looks quite run…
Elite Indian Restaurant offers a wide range of savory veg and non-veg Indian dishes as well as an array of sweets.
Suki's Wok is one of the oldies when it comes to Chinese eateries in Colombo. Nowadays they're mostly into delivery, so we tried it, and they're okay.
The New Majestic Hotel is ironically one of the oldest hotels in Colpetty. How have they been doing since our last visit? Not bad, actually. Not good, but not bad.
One of the oldest Chinese restaurants in Colombo, Chinese Dragon does an okay job.
Good ambience, decent food, over-rated chili paste. Okay value for groups.
