Flower Drum (Battaramulla)

The Flower Drum in Pelawatte sits on top of HSBC Bank and Perera and Sons; a small and convenient restaurant for the occasional dinners with friends or family, although probably not the most ideal place to take a date for a romantic dinner. The service was really good when we went in, and the food – delicious.

The Battaramulla Flower Drum dishes out some delicious Chinese food, and they also offer set menus for lunch.

The Flower Drum in Pelawatte sits on top of HSBC Bank and Perera and Sons; a small and convenient restaurant for the occasional dinners with friends or family, although probably not the most ideal place to take a date for a romantic dinner. The service was really good when we went in, and the food – delicious.

We ordered the chicken fried rice (Rs. 635), sweet and sour battered prawns (Rs. 595), green beans (Rs. 635) and the infamous hot butter cuttlefish (Rs. 680). With VAT and service charge, the total came up to a little over Rs. 3,000.

Honestly my expectations of the food were low to begin with, but the chef did a great job with everything; the cuttlefish was tasty, crispy and chewy with a hint of buttery creaminess and the sweet and sour battered prawns had a lovely crispy texture. The green beans looked a bit strange when they brought it to the table, cut up and covered in chunks of garlic, but it turned out that was really good too. This place is a tad expensive but for the food, it’s probably worth it. They also do delivery and lunch packets starting from Rs. 350. On the whole, it seems a pretty good place to satisfy those regular cravings for Chinese food.

Tip

Delivery's a bit expensive.
