53/3 Ramakrishna Road, Colombo 6

Shanmugas is one of the older and more reputed vegetarian Indian restaurants. They're definitely pricier than most places but the food is very good and the service is excellent.




it's quite out of the way, but an OK place for south Indian vegetarian food. Far from, Colombo, far from Galle Road and down another by lane. However there are enough parking spaces near the restaurant.

This is an OK place for south Indian vegetarian food. No meat or alcohol and they don't allow you to bring in your own bottles either. The food is the usual wayside south Indian fare but at a much higher price and without the worry about hygiene.

The lunch time specials are the Thalis. There is one called "unlimited Thali' but they have no interest at all in seeing what needs replenishing on the plate. You have to draw the attention of a Waiter and ask for replenishments. But in cheaper places there is no big deal about "unlimited" but they routinely go round with curries and rice ever ready to top up.

The food is OK . Comes semi warm but its nothing to rave about. The coffee however is fantastic although extra small in size.

Air conditioned, sparse, dingy and no decor. But clean and brightly lit toilets

Shanmugas is down Ramakrishna Road, off Galle rd, in Wellawatte. It's at the end of a small lane right before Marine Drive.
