Tropical Fresh

No. 02, Rockwood Place, Colombo 07


Fresh fruit juices but bad service and ambience.



Located a few blocks away from Carey College, Tropical Fresh opened up a few months ago. While they serve a delicious fruit juice, unfortunately, that is the only good thing about that place. 

The Drinks

We started off with a Mango Juice (Rs. 200). It was absolutely delicious. The texture was a perfect consistency and you can clearly taste the ripe mango that has been used. And while you could taste the sweetness of the sugar it did not overpower the mango taste, which is rare!

The Avocado Juice (Rs. 180) was equally delicious. It was a proper glass of fresh avocado but a little too sweet for me. 

The Food

I'm the biggest sucker for food on display. Since it was staring right at us, we got the Chicken Burger (Rs. 150). It was probably one of the worst burgers I have tried, in my life.

The burger had the world's thinnest patty on top of a sad little lettuce with a teaspoon of cheese spread (you can barely taste it) and tiny tomato and gherkin slices along with a big piece of onion which they were clearly too lazy to chop into slices. My friend tried the chicken patty and immediately said it was at least a day old. The bun was bland and the veggies were soggy. Needless to say, we didn't finish it.

Service & Ambience 

If I'm being completely honest there is nothing positive I can say about the service and ambience. The service, though quick, was appalling. There were two women behind the counter and had no interest in serving us. They were busy arranging some bottles and clearly looked as if they were annoyed we disturbed them. 

The ambience wasn't any better. It's a small place with a couple of high chairs and one table near the window. There were so many flies which was disgusting and then there was this random chair nearly blocking the entrance yet no one bothered to move it.

Overall

Their main selling products are the juices, which they have perfected, but everything else is really bad. So I might grab a juice to go if I'm in the area or get it delivered, but unless they work on their service and ambience, I doubt I'd return.


TIP

Go for the Mango juice!

Ordered some items via Uber a few times - every time they send substandard quality and they do NOT give the weights one paid for. Last time the king coconut water was spoiled (it has a strange odour and colour). I paid for 6 mandarins and only got 5 (this time and even last time and they did not refund). I paid for 500 gms of sweet potato and I got cut up sweet potato and NOT the weight I paid for. They charge for "packaging charge"… but the veggies and fruits were dumped in one bag. They are FRAUDS!… As there is NO price and weight indicated - they send less than what one pays for. I paid for cut veggies in a box - there was barely anything. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY. THEY CHEAT CUSTOMERS.
