7 Restaurants to Dine in September.


If you can’t travel the globe, eating food originating from every corner of it is truly the next best thing.

Trying different international cuisines is hands-down, an amazing experience. The simplest way to understand the workings of the world just a bit better.

So, for the month of September, we’ve replaced to-do lists with to-go lists. Here’s a list of 7 restaurants you will not regret going to!

From the second you walk in through the door till the minute you leave, they promise an authentic culinary experience.

1. Alhambra by Ramada 

With its vibrant dishes and exotic flavours, Indian Cuisine is both a treat for the eyes and a feast for the taste buds. Ramada Colombo does this dynamic cuisine justice with Alhambra, their restaurant that takes inspiration from the ancient Mughal empire. Their aromatic North Indian dishes together with the ambience lives up to India’s rich heritage and traditions.

Address : 30 Sir Mohomad Macan Markar Mawatha, Colombo 3

Phone : (+94) 112 422 001

2. Ristorante Via Torino

Yet another unique cuisine, Italian, is the theme of multiple restaurants but very few manage to capture the magic of it. Ristorante Via Torina is a definite exception. Authentically Italian to its core, everything from the music down to the garnish is true to its heritage. It’s the ultimate fine dining experience and we totally recommend it.
