Restaurants Serving Diwali Special Meals in Colombo 2018.

Diwali/Deepavali, also known as the festival of lights, is one of the most auspicious and popular festivals celebrated by the Hindus, Sikhs, and Jains across the world. It marks the victory of Light over Darkness; Good over Evil. 
The celebration of Diwali includes lighting traditional earthen diyas (candles), displaying large fireworks, colorful rangoli artworks and families sharing food and goods among each other and to those in need.
So, in order to make this festival more exciting, here we have compiled a list of places that serve up Diwali themed meals/buffets in Colombo. 


Tucked in next to Independence Square, Agra one of Colombo's high-end Indian restaurants, serves up some superb North Indian fare. For this year's Diwali, they've come up with an interesting selection of festive food. You can opt for a three-course meal (starter, main, and dessert).

The festive special starters section has Hariyali Tikka and Makai Panner Tikki, while the mains collection is comprised of Lucknowi Biriyani, Calicut Biriyani, and Subzhi Handi Biriyani. On the sweet side of things, they've included Moong Dhal Halwa, Semiya Kheer, and Jalebi for you to munch on during this celebration of the festival of lights. These dishes are available during 5th – 10th of November.


Thalis is known for their massive thalis that will leave you feeling full for hours, and they do a particularly great Masala Chai. They're having a Diwali special lunch buffet today (6th) from 11.00am – 3.00pm and this spread includes both South and North Indian fare. 


Named after Lord Krishna’s mythical hometown, Dwaraka serves up some good North and South Indian fare. Their Diwali buffet happens today (6th) from 12.00pm to 3.30pm. Be sure to try their Masala Chai, it's the bomb!

Chola Authentic Indian Restaurant

Chola is one of the latest additions to Colombo's Indian fare. At Rs. 2300 per head, they're having a Diwali buffet today (6th) from 11.30 am. As you can probably see in this picture, this spread is comprised of soups, starters, rice/bread varieties, mains, desserts, and a few extra dishes. This buffet is specially designed for Diwali, and available for both lunch and dinner, so their A-la-carte menu won’t be available throughout the day. 

Premium Sudarshan

Premium Sudarshan serves up both veg and non-veg food now, and their Diwali special offer gives you 20% off on any bill over Rs. 1500. This offer is applicable for all dine-in, takeaway and delivery orders, and valid throughout 5th – 9th of November. 


Chutneys at Cinnamon Grand has a lot to offer on their Diwali celebration dinner buffet. It's available from 7.00pm today (6th) and features live counters and 16 mains consisting of delicacies from Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Andra Pradesh and Karnatka.

Amaravathi Restaurant

Head on over to Amaravathi Restaurant for a spread specially curated for Diwali. Prices ranging from Rs. 990 – 1300, this collection includes Maharani Biriyani (Chicken/Mutton/Prawns), Kerala Chicken with Naan, Vegetable Jalfrezi with Naan, and a variety of vadai.
