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

The Governor's Restaurant at the Mount Lavinia Hotel is one of the few hotel restaurants that offers real value for money with their dishes.
The Kingsbury buffet is pretty good. It's the best in terms of salads and veg, highly competitive in seafood, and good for everything else. It's Rs. 3,500 all in. We think it's good value.
Ikoi Tei offers an authentic Japanese dining experience with an extensive food and drinks menu. Situated at the Dutch Hospital Shopping Precinct, this is a great spot for date night.
Taprobane's dinner buffet is pretty awesome. For just Rs. 2200, the spread's large and the food's top quality. Highlights? Their egg hoppers and their chocolate fudge.
The Verandah Bistro is a lesser known hotel restaurant on the third floor of the Hilton Residences. It does average hotel food with a nice poolside view.

Semondu is Sri Lankan airlines' attempt at semi-fine dining (yup, that's a word now). They serve up continental fusion cuisine, and for the most part, they do it well.
If you make it to the north side, Flag And Whistle is a well-appointed space with a view of the port. They do hearty but expensive German fare.
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.
We liked Sugar Bistro in the past and three years down the line that still hasn't changed. Their food is tasty, they offer a great atmosphere for dining and the service is some of the best…
