A chilled out place in the heart of Colombo for a nibble and drink after work with friends, which doesn't require you to dress up or shell out serious dough.
Poppy Hana, with their sushi conveyer belt is a fun place to dine, but the sushi itself wasn't fresh.
A pure vegetarian North & South Indian restaurant, cafe and bakery, Mangos is one of those famous Jaffna joints that warrants a visit and a mention.
The YAMU Date Night Index tells you what hand to play when romance is on the cards.
Great Wall has been around for a while now, but they're mostly known for their take out. We dropped by for lunch to see how they match up against the growing number of Chinese restaurants in Colombo.
Fits' Margosa in Chunnakam, Jaffna is an elegant refurbished 19th Century mansion about 9km away from the main town, and possibly one of the only upscale hotels at the very North.
As far as safe bets go, Bayleaf is right up there. Good Italian fare at not too exorbitant prices, and a rather extensive menu to choose from.
Royal Thai is a great celebratory option. With delicious food and impeccable service, it's definitely one of Colombo's reigning dining royalty.
Wasi.lk has quite a few established online stores to contend with, but they have a simple and easy site, and efficient, dedicated service on their side. We do hope they can extend their products a bit more though.
The Kingsbury’s poolside restaurant, the Waterscape offers a pretty great view (for now) and al fresco dining. If you’re looking for a decent grill or a bit of fun fondue and have a bit of cash to spare, this place is worth it.
Gerard Mendis Chocolatier is a fancy chocolate manufacturer on Horton Place that also offers a range of other desserts. While they charge a premium for their bite-sized chocolates, we found very little we actually enjoyed, and wished we had gone for a bar of Snickers instead. (And as for their cheesecake, don’t even get us started.)
If you have a penchant for birds, nature and general chilling on a canoe, this is the place to be.
The Achcharu Kadé is a popular stall that sells good quality, relatively upscale achcharu.
TEMPORARILY CLOSED. So quirky Kottu is a permanent Colombo fixture now. Literally, because the Kottuville truck has dropped its wheels and set up shop in a convertainer adjoining the Union Place Keells Super.
Yet another of the Good Market's fabulous finds, the Ceylan Crêperie is a superb nomadic little stall that started up few years ago. The French owner Noémi is effervescent and passionate about her product. Follow her on Facebook or Instagram to know where to find her next and to enjoy her yummy crêpes.
