High tea at the Hilton is an experience best avoided.
The Festival combines nutrition promotion with small enterprise development
If you're in the mood to spend an afternoon unwinding we've got a round up of the most well established high teas in Colombo.
The French Spring Festival promises a fantastic celebration of music by the likes of Sonith.
If you're in the mood for hoppers the Dutch Burgher Union's Hopper Night Madness on the 19th of July will certainly leave you hopping.
It’s called the swimming club, so this ought to be a good place for a swim - and it is. Apart from splashing it out in the pool, you can also dive into their excellent club-level food.
Rripe is an okay juice bar that offers juices and fruits that are locally grown.
Hana Mart, while small, sells a good selection of fun Korean food. Shrimp crackers, ramen, kimchi, biscuits and so on.
The Anna Marie Bakery sounds like a place from a Beatrix Potter book. The food might as well be from the books too.
The Colombo Café is a new competitor in Colombo’s café square off. While the prices of sandwiches and shakes can put your wallet on the endangered list, their Sri Lankan Buffet deal is the best deal we’ve come across.
The Ceylon City Hotel is one of the newer new age hotels in Colombo. It's got good facilities at decent prices.
Local biryani doesn’t seem to get the attention it deserves. If you think about it though those plates of saffron tinged rice are a central part of life for millions of Sri Lankans.
The Street Café is a fairly new joint in Mount Lavinia. They've got a range of average dishes and a quite good hot buttered cuttlefish.
Have you seen all Colombo has to offer? Suba Gaman encompasses a good bit of everything in Colombo and is an excellent choice for tourist groups.
Closed now. Rama's Tea House is a new... something in Battaramulla, near the Kotte Road turn-off. I saw something because it's a weird and not entirely satisfying mix of tea house and English pub.
The National Postal Museum is a surprisingly well maintained collection elaborately detailing Sri Lanka's ...well you guessed it - postal history.
Oven Geeks is a family restaurant tucked away on Templers Road in Mount Lavinia. The food and ambiance is decent and it’s the sort of place you rely on when you’re in the mood to hangout with your friends and grab a quick meal.
