Calorie Counter

61, Thimbirigasyaya Road, Colombo 05

Calorie Counter with its emphasis on healthy eating was one of the best new additions to Colombo's restaurant scene in 2015. Now they've gone a step further and introduced a pretty comprehensive breakfast menu, most of it actually tastes pretty great.




I used to be a regular at the Calorie Counter but have recently stopped going there. I have only been to the one in Col 5 and thus cannot comment on their outlets in the Outer Hebrides.The food used to be fantastic - thought it used to be a hit or miss whether you got the corn or not when you order grilled veggies. Opening the container and finding the corn was a bit like finding that extra present under the Christmas tree.

The last few visits to Calories Counter have been a disappointment to say the least. The potions sizes have been ludicrously inconsistent. A rather piss poor show, if you ask me, for a restaurant that brands itself as eatery where an overweight chap (or "chapette") can control his/her calorie intake. The grilled chicken was dry and tasteless and that lovely pumpkin mash reduced to a watery mush like Top Gear without Clarkson, May and Hammond.

It is indeed sad. Sad, sad sad (or bow wow wow as Snoop Dogg would say). I was a big fan of the Calorie Counter. I do hope the owners will take this review seriously as they had a fantastic product. Start by putting a proper supervisor and quality controller in. Have strict controls on quality and quantity. It will be a shame to see the Calorie Counter take the path of most restaurants in Colombo; start with a bang and fizzle away to obscurity like Pacman or the Spice Girls.

What about the Delivery Service they use, I hear you ask? Not so "Quick" old chap, might be faster to send Jeeves to pick it up. Want to place a delivery order for an early lunch? Tough luck me ol matey, the "Quicksters" only take orders after noon so pour yourself a stiff one and while away until the clock strikes twelve.

Calorie Counter is on Thimbirigasyaya, just up from Havelock Road. It's before the Fab on Siripa Rd, right opposite the Glory Swim Shop.
