Artwork for Sampath Top - April 2018

We had a great time here. It's a friendly spot on the beach, very near Colombo, with good Chinese food. Doesn't get much better.




Well….where do I start !!! We had a reservation for 7 people on the beach,unfortunately the weather gods were not on our side last Saturday (25th of Feb) we were asked to move into a glass cubicle as all the other tables were reserved ????as informed by the staff even though we noticed plenty of empty tables in covered areas of the restaurant.
Got the feeling that we were on display inside the cubicle…and feeling claustrophobic.
After the rain had ceased, we ventured to the beach, to our "reserved table", but we were informed that they will not wipe the plastic tables/chairs as it's getting late(9.30 PM) and will not serve anything as well.
However, after much pleading/begging we were given a table in the garden under a tree. Wow….much to our relief.
We ordered dinner….and we made the mistake of ordering Crispy Beef slices with chilli among many other things.
The Beef was so chewy, it reminded me of an old worn out, discarded leather shoe. None of us could eat it and when this was pointed out to the waiter, he replied, Quote " That's the way this particular dish is prepared"Unquote.
We were left speechless, and we also realized that it's futile to pursue this issue with him any further and the best option is to pay and leave & "NEVER TO COME BACK". Also make the public aware of the standard of service and food through a review.
The rest of the food was edible……
The only positive remark I can make about our horrendous experience was that we were allowed to take in our alcohol without a corkage charge.
06 of us were from the hospitality industry and we had never come across such incompetent service standards and appalling food.

On Marine Drive, keep heading south until you pass the Dehiwala Canal and basically can't go anymore. It's on your right. From Galle Road, turn down at the William Grinding Mills junction.
