YAMU Recommends

Taprobane (Cinnamon Grand)

Cinnamon Grand, Galle Road, Colombo 3

Taprobane's dinner buffet is pretty awesome. For just Rs. 2200, the spread's large and the food's top quality. Highlights? Their egg hoppers and their chocolate fudge.

FLOW (Hilton Colombo Residences)

200, Union Place, Colombo 2

FLOW is a restaurant at the Hilton Residences that serves up a variety of international and local cuisines.

VOC Cafe (Dutch Burgher Union)

114 Reid Avenue Colombo 4

The VOC is a one of the best places in the city to get lamprais, and we've heard their burgers are pretty good too.

Taste of Asia

324, Galle Road, Colombo 04

Taste of Asia is a very affordable favourite on Galle Road for hoppers and Jaffna food.

Mithuro Cafe

9, R. A De Mel Mawatha, Colombo 04

Mithuro Cafe does good rice and curry for cheap, and we especially love their 'chicken pieces' rotti.

Palmyrah (Hotel Renuka)

328, Hotel Renuka, Galle Road, Colombo 3

Palmyrah has long been one of the best places in the city for Sri Lankan food. They've expanded well into Western and Indian too, the food is great, and it's also a comfy, quiet, chilled space to dine at.…

Curry Leaf (Hilton)

2, Hilton Colombo Hotel, Fort, Colombo 1

Curry Leaf is the Hilton's Sri Lankan restaurant, and their spread of local cuisine and fresh seafood is top notch. If you can afford the taxes, this is a must try.


65 CWW Kannangara Mawatha (Town Hall), Colombo 7

Upali's does affordable and tasty Sri Lankan food.

Cafe On The 5th

108 5th Lane, Colombo 3

Cafe On The 5th has been a local favourite for years, serving tasty food in a comfortable al fresco style atmosphere. Their quality has taken a nose-dive recently, though.

Green Cabin

453 Galle Road, Kollupitiya, Colombo 3

Providing the city with crispy white hoppers and tongue burning katta sambol for well over 60 years, Green Cabin is one of Colombo's older, more venerable eating establishments.

The Canteen

Independence Walk, Colombo 7

Formerly known as Walkers Cafe, The Canteen hasn't changed much at all but their hoppers are excellent.

Kaema Sutra (Shangri-La Colombo)

Shangri-La Hotel, 1 Galle Face, Colombo 2

The new Kaema Sutra, moved from its previous premises in Arcade Independence to the plush Shangri La, still serves decent-ish food at high prices
