YAMU Recommends


60A Dharmapala Mawatha, Colombo 3

Dinemore's never struck me as an exceptional place. I've always enjoyed the food and found it tasty, but it's not the kind of place I'd actively choose to go to – it was more of an oh it's just round…

A Singaporean franchise that does fried chicken with sambal sauce, and serves food super fast. As it should be.

Paan Paan Sandwich Bar

Big Bite (Mount Lavinia)

485 Galle Road, Mount Lavinia

Big Bite in Mount Lavinia is one of the few places where you can get yourself a proper Pakistani biriyani. It's spicier than most, but it's still damn good, specially coupled with their barbequed…

Pot Biriyani

50, W.A. Silva Mawatha, Colombo 06

Chana's has been gaining popularity for sometime now and it's easy to see why. They do a pretty good take on North Indian cuisine and their biriyani is one of the best in town.


100/10, Independence Avenue, Colombo 7

Agra is another one of those rare fine dining Indian restaurants in Colombo. They're not cheap but we think their food is definitely worth the price.

Galle Caterers

122, Kadawatha Road, Kalubowila, Dehiwala

Galle Caterers are one of the older caterers in Colombo with quite a large customer-base. We've tried their stuff on numerous occasions and they offer great value for money on top of consistent taste.

The international franchise Subway has come a long way since they first set up shop here. Our recent visit however, proved that Subway is now sub-par when it comes to their food.

If you're in Colombo 7 and you're craving a good biriyani, Raheema is one of the first places that will come to mind. That's exactly the situation we found ourselves in, and we're glad we dropped in.
