Good shops

The Odel shop and restaurants are good. The Odel store is quite small but serves the purpose for emergency shopping.

Good facilities, excellent restaurants and affordable shops with good gift selections. (Just don't buy jewelry there as it is priced for tourists. Go to one of the factory stores in town - ask the hotel's taxi or tuk-tuk.)

We passed by the complex when we were doing a tour in the area. It is basically couple of souvenir shops, few restaurants and a spa in a nice historical elegant building. I liked the place even though we just stayed to rest for few minutes and looked around quickly. The restaurants look nice but probably a bit expensive compared... More

The complex has a vast number of really good restaurants and also a court yard you could simply enjoy a cold drink in the blazing sun of Colombo. The souvenir shop was also good for some last minute gift shopping. The entire complex is well maintained and quite fancy. Worth a visit

Picturesque place - good example of a historic site converted into a tourist attraction in a tasteful way. Lots of shops and restaurants to choose from, including Ministry of Crab.

Definitely a place to visit for a dinner or lunch. The old colonial era hospital is converted into a complex that is host to numerous restaurants. Seafood lovers would love the Ministry of Crab. Just adjacent to the complex you will find other restaurants dotting the place like TGI Fridays. The World Trade Center is a imposing landmark just in... More

We fell in place with this place. This is an old hospital, which has been remodeled to be a lifestyle center (shopping and restaurants). It has a huge courtyard, and with some rain drizzling and pouring at the courtyard, it was a delight. The restaurants here are pretty good
