At Park Bay’s mixed cuisine restaurant..

By Dilshikaa Kannan

A cosy little restaurant down W.A.Silva Mawatha that surprised us with an extensive but interesting menu. ParkBay recently went through a management change along with a full refurbishment, and it was indeed a good change. 

Ambience

A small yet comfy space with table settings apt for families. The grey interior with plenty lights makes it a perfect dinner spot too.

They serve a variety of cuisine ranging from Sri Lankan Chinese to Indian. The extensive menu consisted of crowd favorites like Hot Butter Cuttlefish, gourmet burgers, a dedicated waffle corner and Korean inspired beef dishes.

Food

We started the night off with an amuse bouche- for the night we went, we were served some tempura veggies with a side of mayo and ketchup. This was on the house and varies everyday.

The veggies were coated in a thin flavorful batter that made the veggies super crunchy and we knew we were in for a great night after having tasted this.

For thirst quenchers we decided to go ahead with a couple of mocktails- a pina colada and a watermelon mojito. The latter was very refreshing and acted more like a palette cleanser, whereas the former was a quite heavy beverage that was a perfect combo of pineapple and coconut.

As it was a multi-cuisine restaurant, we decided to go with Chinese for the night. 

The Spicy Dragon Rice is a restaurant special- the rice was tossed in a spicy sauce blend that was very unique, it was spicy yet sweet from the various sauces that was mixed. The portion could easily be shared by two people and had a lot of meat in it.

Whenever we see HBC on the menu, we go for it, That’s how much we love our HBC, and the Park Bays version of it had the flavors right. The only let down was that the cuttlefish itself was a little tough, but the flavors more than made up for it.

As an accompaniment for the rice, we ordered the black pepper fish and man were we happy that we went for it. This was by far the most favorite once, the fish was cooked perfectly and melt in your mouth good. The pepper sauce had a good pepper kick and coated the fish well making it absorb all the saucy goodness.

As an afterthought, we went for their sub too since it looked too good not to pass. We chose the ParkBay special sub, this sub was filled with the chef’s special chicken filling which was yet another hit. It was a very satisfying portion and cam along with chippies and slaw.

We ended the night with this rich chocolate orange mousse, as a big fan of chocolate, I’ve tried plenty of mousses and this one is on the top of the list of the best mousses I‘ve ever had. The addition of the orange had our taste buds zinging and honestly the combo of the high quality dark chocolate and the intense orange was a match made in heaven.

If you’re going through the busy street of W.A.Silva Mawatha, make sure you visit Park Bay restaurant as well, the service is great and the food is top notch. You won’t be disappointed. 

We highly recommend getting both the mousse and the Pepper fish.
