A Packet Of Buth To Your Doorstep Amid Curfew.

One can eat only so much rice & curry during self-isolation but sometimes, there's nothing equal to the comfort it brings. Plus, given how tricky it is to find ingredients these days, some of us haven't had the chance of indulging in a proper plate of rice & curry in a while; one that gives you complete satisfaction.
So for those of you who live in Colombo, we bring this list of rice & curry spots that deliver during curfew hours.
*For the full list of restaurants that deliver during curfew hours, click here.

Kaala Balan – Maha Gedara

Kaala Balan's spread of rice & curry is simply awesome; we've never had a bad time here. Packed with spices to give that very Sri Lankan touch, each buth packet is comprised of a meat of your pick and 4 veg curries. Their pork curry gets our resounding approval. This stuff is available for lunch only, and keep an eye on their Facebook page for more details as they have different curries every day.

Galle Caterers

One of the oldest catering services in town, Galle Caterers is delivering their rice and curries amid curfew. However, it's more of a feast for the family, as they don't do single servings. Each spread contains a portion of rice, a meat variety (mostly chicken) and 4 vegetable curries, and all of this is sharable among 6 people. Available throughout lunch and dinner.

Cloud Kitchen By CHM

A venture by COi by Vichalya, Cloud Kitchen By CHM has curated separate meals that can be shared up to 10 people. Aside from the excellent rice & curry, we highly recommend their beef curry, if you're looking for something to accompany your homemade rice.

Palmyrah (Hotel Renuka)
