Thai Heritage is one of the many chic little restaurants on the foyers of the Old Dutch Hospital building in the Galle fort. The food though not striving for authenticity, is still alright, and somewhat on par with most fancy diners in the fort.
Rocket Burger is the Galle Fort's only burger specialist. The patties are well ground and they're usually very generous with stuffing - you're going to spend Rs. 900 minimum for a burger here though.
Coffee Bean is slowly turning into Colombo's next Barista - this is the third branch to pop up in the city at another very central location. The coffee and food here taste alright and are pricey as usual, and it's a comfy quiet place to chill out at.
Here's a round up of places to get food that beats the bad Colombo heat, from ice cream to fruit shakes.
Paradise Road Cafe is one of our favourite haunts, cocooned in a small, white, quiet space atop a lovely store full of antiques and art. The food and coffee are very good, and it's an excellent book nook.
Here's a round up of all the places you can get a good burger.
Ginza On The Edge is the suburban successor to the Hilton’s Ginza Hohsen. It's on the 1st floor of Waters Edge and offers high-end Japanese with excellent service to boot.
It's been announced that 26 parts of the country have now been turned into free Wi-Fi zones - here's a map of where.
The Ocean is the Kingsbury's seafood restaurant. The food is fresh off the ice onto the pan - it's good, and they also do a decent, affordable sashimi.
Hash Deli is an awesome homebaker of cakes that has shot to popularity through Good Market. They make a killer cheesecake.
The Barnesbury is another cafe in Colombo. They've got a lovely garden out back, interesting London themed decor and they do an ordinary range of generic Western dishes.
Temporarily closed (taking a break). Smokey's is a home baker that specializes in delicious brownies at easy prices - and they happen to be completely vegan too.
Here's a round-up of some of our favourite places for cuttlefish, crab, et al, in Colombo.
Cafe Beverly is a comfortable, affordable dining space in the premises of the Beverly Street shopping complex in Rajagiriya.
Galle Face is Colombo's most frequented public park - it's crowded but still a great place to watch the sunset, fly kites and eat isso vade.
Sometimes you're just in the mood for a great cake or ice cream on-the-go. Here's a list of our favourite desserts in the big city.
Brownie Lovin' is one of Colombo's awesome brownie bakers. The brownies are extremely gooey and chocolatey, and affordable.
