Houses, government offices and a whole heap of traffic, Battaramulla has changed in the span of a decade. And what used to be dote, is now a hub of all kinds of things including restaurants. Thus, we bring you this long-overdue list of restaurants where you can get your food at if you live or is in the vicinity of Battaramulla.
As the name so subtly suggests, The Catch Colombo does fish. Found in a nook of Battaramulla behind Jam, the restaurant is your ideal spot if you're looking for a simple solid night comprising of a rustic, chilled out ambience and some very nice fried fish.
Your safest bet to a Thai meal that's not too harsh on the wallet is Quick Thai. Sure, it isn't the cheapest around, but at least you don't have to make yourself to Colombo to get Thai food anymore.
Sen Saal has been one of the biggest go-to places in Battaramulla for as long as I remember. Whether it be for bread, short eats on your way to school or even on rare occasions, dinner, Sen Saal has got you (more or less) covered for whatever it is that you're looking for.
Hotel Suvai is not for those of you who are looking for a fancy dinner. But, if you're looking for decent food at a very wallet-friendly cost, we suggest going with them. They did a ridiculously good Curd Rice the last time around, and they've got the option of an all-you-can-eat lunch for when you're horribly hungry.
Brio used to be known as Mona's Kitchen, they also happen to be one of your best options if you're looking for Italian food in this particular part of the world. Sure, they can be a tad expensive, and while Vishvi's experience here wasn't all that great, I had a wonderful time.
Battaramulla doesn't necessarily have a lot of cafes, and your safest bet for an experience a tad on the fancier side of things would be Cafe Noir. The food is a bit steep in terms of pricing, but we had a pretty good experience here nonetheless. Try the Hot Chocolate, it's the best!
Found on the side of the rod, M'eat US has done a pretty good job of serving up some delicious meat to satiate every carnivore in the area. BBQ is their speciality, and they do it quite well. Their platters are ideal if you're dining as a group.
Japanese food can be abit hard to find in the area, but Kobe pretty much is our top pick of the category (in the area). The food isn't all that expensive and is worth the amount you pay for it. They also do Japanese themed high teas at the end of the month.
Sakya Pavilion highlights themselves for their wellness-based, delicious vegetarian food and an ambience like no other. With a whole heap of artsy looking huts with statues of deities and such, along with tall trees, hooded lighting, and the orchestral music playing in the background, it's like you're in a set of an action movie. Their Whole Wheat Chapati and Potato (Abalone) and Mushroom Soup are simply brilliant, and on the sweet side, they've got a nice Date Pudding.
Known as the only drive-through bakery in Colombo, The Bakery at the Edge is a good place to satisfy your daily needs of quick eats; you don't even have to get out of your car for it. They do some solid Mutton Roll as well as an Egg & Bacon Puff, and if you're looking for something sweet, we highly recommend the Blueberry Muffin.
Box Colony literally lies inside a container box. Their food can use some work, but the service is quite great, and you can BYOB here without having to pay a corkage fee.
Pranzo is an Italian restaurant at Waters Edge that has both indoor and outdoor seating, with pizza, pasta, lasagna and even grilled meats on offer, and an amazing view. If you've got some cash to spend to satiate your Italian food cravings, this is a good option in the area.
