Artwork for Kingsbury
rare at Residence (Uga Residence)

20 Park Street, Colombo 3

Expensive, but probably the most modernist Sri Lankan cuisine you can get.

The Bayleaf

79, Gregory's Road, Colombo 07.

As far as safe bets go, Bayleaf is right up there. Good Italian fare at not too exorbitant prices, and a rather extensive menu to choose from.

Upali's

65 CWW Kannangara Mawatha (Town Hall), Colombo 7

Upali's does affordable and tasty Sri Lankan food.

Colombo Fort Cafe (Dutch Hospital)

Dutch Hospital, Bank of Ceylon Mawatha, Colombo 1

Colombo Fort Cafe is a Harpo's run restaurant located in the popular Dutch Hospital shopping complex, serving up delicious pizzas, pastas and burgers.

The Gallery Café

Alfred House Rd, Colombo 3, Sri Lanka

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.

Park Street Mews Restaurant

50/1 Park Street, Colombo 2

Park Street Mews Restaurant is one of those select few that have managed to remain relevant and maintain high standards throughout the years. They haven't changed much at all, but we're fine with that…

Zen

115, Rosmead Place, Colombo 7

Zen is Zylan boutique hotel's hidden gem of a Japanese restaurant. They made a great first impression on our visit, and we love their new bento boxes.

Tintagel

65 Rosmead Place, Colombo 7

Tintagel is a great space done well. We highly recommend it for dessert and maybe bring your own wine, but the dinner we had was unexceptional for the price.
