CocoCeylon is a mysterious business that we spotted only on Instagram. They offer overpriced smoothies and chia puddings.
A little buth kade does some mediocre set menu rice and curry.
A small coffee shop in the MC food court that serves up sandwiches and cake.
The King Coconut has a tropical vibe with its roof dotted with coconut fronds and bamboo fences all round. It's also very chilled out, with a great view of the sea and the wind whipping around.
A city hotel in the depths of Wattala. Rather nice place, but mediocre food and service.
I can understand the appeal of Aqua to a certain clientele. It's probably a good place for a party. The beach isn't always swimmable, but there's a nice area where you can drinks some cocktails, watch the…
An Indian vegetarian restaurant with an extensive menu of North and South Indian cuisine.
Blue Tan is one of the restaurants in Heritance Negombo, a gigantic new luxury hotel along Poruthota Road.
Shanmugas has an express outlet at Crescat. If you're going for anything else but the tea, stick to the main outlet.
Pedlar's Inn Cafe is a popular stop in Galle fort (and so is their Gelato opposite the cafe) - the food is alright, but mostly it's the ambience that makes this place appealing, though there are better…
Café Noir's attempt to take over Colombo's caffeine industry is slowly reaching its peak as they opened a new branch at Thimbirigasyaya. Are they good, though?
Coffee Bean's prices are still atrocious, but somehow they've managed to stay consistent with the quality of their drinks. Strange, but true.
So Mirissa's got their own Beach Wadiya (though not associated with Colombo's Wadiya). They offer a decent variety of seafood with an emphasis on the day's catch. The execution, however, was…
Star Dogs is a hotdog stand that's been lurking at MC for a while now. We dropped by to see how they're doing.
Cool Berry is where the Juice Bar used to be. Despite their name and the extensive range of juices and smoothies on the menu, they don't have half of it.
Dilmah t-Lounge at the Arcade is pretty similar to their outlet in Chatham Street. The food is good, and the space is less crowded but the service isn't great.
Sri Siam on W.A. Silva Mawatha is yet another new Thai restaurant. We had high hopes since it's run by Thai management, but the food just wasn't up to par.
A Barista outlet at the bustling WTC.
BreadTalk. We've been there a few times. And on every visit I'm strangely drawn to the polished, round buns, the cheesy breads, the flaky danishes - and each time, I come away disappointed - like a…
A German restaurant at the Boardwalk's outdoor premises.
They have okay-ish food, and have an Arabian-Nights-esque deco going on, but have room for vast improvement.
Right next to Cool Planet (Pelawatte) is a tiny little bakery serving up short eats, fresh fruit juice and a decent rice and curry. The range of available short eats may be small but the…
Dragon Chinese (not to be confused with Chinese Dragon) at Panadura does an exceptional job at making some terrible Sri Lankanised Chinese food.
