When you want something else

Belizian food is great but sometimes you just want something else. Then try Serendib. We had a fantastic curry here for lunch that had all the traditional Sri Lankian flavors. The service was very friendly and you can sit in the garden at the back of you want.

It was our first stop when we got into San Ignacio. The curries we tried were remarkably authentic-tasting, not quite as spicy as I like, but really good. Beers and curry while sitting just off the street for people watching... Can't go wrong!

A group of us had dinner here. It was very nice. There is lots of choice- Sri Lankan or other dishes- fish, chicken etc. Great value- for chicken Chow Mein $6USD and smoothie $2.50USD. The food was lovely. Staff were very friendly. I definitely recommend it.

We went here on New Years Day when a lot of other places were closed. The menu was limited and maybe it was not the best time to eat there. Our food was fine but nothing special.

The shrimp curry was very good. The portions are generous and the prices are very reasonable. Service was excellent.

We stopped in at Serendib for their happy hour ($10 BZ pina coladas - yay!) a few times. They have free wireless though this can be a bit sktechy when there are a lot of people on it. Also the Pina Colada's are massive - they serve them in giant glass goblets! Their service was excellent, the wait staff were... More

Our group of 13 arrived at 8pmish and we didn't have a thing to eat for more than two hours. The service was so shocking, it was worse than terrible because it was practically non-existent. After quite a delay, some of us got our beers and other drinks. I'd ordered a mango or lime margarita but there were no mangoes... More

Had excellent curry here on a wet night in San Ignacio. Located on main Burns Avenue but you can sit inside near the back to avoid the crowds. Great choice on menu and definitely one of the best curries we had on holiday. Good mixed drinks as well. Nice service, uncrushed even though we sat for a while after dinner.

My husband and I placed orders for chicken curry, and they were never brought to our table. We sat at the restaurant (which has an unpleasant smell coming from somewhere) for almost 2 hours. When we got up to leave, the whole staff claimed that we had not ordered any food. In fact, one of them had written our orders... More
