Nihonbashi is one of our most famous restaurants - they serve the best sushi in the city, fact. This is the place for Japanese fine cuisine.
Sweetberry is a small juice bar which specializes in berries (strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, etc).
Swyree is a little spot near Orr's Hill which serves a great Kottu and fried frice. East coast kottu is different and this place is worth a try.
If you want to get away from the more crowded Nilaveli Beach Resort and have a decent, affordable meal, Pigeon Island Beach Resort is a good spot. It had a great owner (RIP) and continues to have good, hospitable staff.
Raja Bojun is generally known for good Sri Lankan cuisine. They've moved from their old spot near Galle Face to a new location at the top of Liberty Arcade. The food is still good, so is the spread, though nothing amazing. We loved the seafood best.
Adma Agro in Nuwara Eliya is well known for their fresh strawberries and strawberry products. The store itself isn't in the best shape, but thankfully their desserts are still pretty tasty.
Panino makes excellent sandwiches. Filled with tasty ingredients, grilled, prepared with love. If you visit the Good Market each Thursday they're well worth a try. Otherwise they're a good choice for catering or office lunches.
CLOSED: Speed Drome in Battaramulla, as far as I know, is the only place for pro karting in close proximity to Colombo. They used to have a smaller circuit in Excel World (AKA Millenium Park before) but it looks like they’ve sold their go karts for scrap metal leaving Speed Drome the only place for an injection of speed.
Curve, at Park Street Mews, is a tapas bar that's been around for a couple of years. While the purple-white theme is looking a bit old now, their tapas and drinks are still pretty good.
Interesting place. Food wasn't mind-blowing but it was good and we'll definitely give the other menu items a try. What really sets it apart is the staff, who really seem to put love into the food.
If you're traveling in packs, Villa Red is a far better value than the package hotels in Bentota. You have full access to the river and watersports and have a really well-equipped villa to hang out in.
