The Gallery Cafe is one of those perpetually hip spots in Colombo. The ambience is one of a kind and the food is consistently good, but it will leave a dent in your wallet.
One of the best views anywhere in the city or the region, in an incredibly under-rated colonial property.
Colombo Courtyard is a business hotel which also serves as one of the city's hippest new bars.
La Passion is a midrange, established hair salon
Beach Wadiya is an old school beachside restaurant in Wellawatte. The service is fast and the food is good, but not excellent.
Siam House serves up reliable and tasty Thai-fare, and they're built for volume and deliveries.
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.
