A variety of high quality hand made stuff. Very nice to leisurely browse and pick up stuff to take back home. A lovely cafe with a relaxed, laid back atmosphere. Recommended.

This place is definitely one of the best places in Colombo. One of the places that my wife asked me to visit, It was definitely a colorful store. It is a chain and we have bought tablecloths and napkins with vivid colors. They have an excellent restaurant where an English guy is super friendly and attentive. He is an excellent... More

We visited this store when we were here in 2006, so it was a pleasure to come back on this trip. Nice textiles, wood carvings, jewellery, palm-leave drawings, metalware, pottery, clothing, books, tea, incense, essential oils, postcards, bags, toys... you name it, they seem to have it! Unique, quality handmade goods and I think the prices are fair. The store... More

It is the best place to go if you want to pick up anything sri lankan and enjoy some nice jazz music and good food. We went during the sri lankan new year time and they had some food stalls with local savories. The open lounge area is very European . The store is so colorful and well organized. Slightly... More

Barefoot goods are wonderful. I've visited the Galle Road Store and Galle Fort. I love the fabric and find the prices reasonable and the clothes are very well made. I would like to say that if you are over a size 14 UK you will not get anything to fit which seems a bit daft. The food is ok, but... More

This is indeed a great store. I bought some tea from there and while most of it was manufactured last year and will not expire for another 2-3 years, there were 2 packages I bought that when I took them home and looked at the expiration date, realized that they were manufactured in 2011 and will expire in only a...

I travelled around Sri Lanka for a month. My friend had recommended that I wait until the end to buy gifts and such before, and he was bang on. The quality of the items was for the most part better than most of the things I saw while travelling. And the prices were fine.

Loved this shop. Purchased table linens, a necklace which I have received many compliments on and a top. Sadly the restaurant had closed for the day and so our men couldn't have the drink they were looking forward to while we shopped! I was in love with all the rich, saturated colours in this shop. Also the tailoring in the... More
