Chola is a new Indian Restaurant serving some of the best Indian we have tried.
Latheruma does a really tasty and cheap rice and curry lunch.

They serve some super authentic Sri Lankan ice cream.
Barefoot Cafe is the best place to hang out in Colombo. It's a chilled place to meet or make friends, see art, hear music, eat good food and drink affordable beer.
