This is located near to House of Fashion, well popular Horton place road in Borella. If you have an idea to go to Swiss Embassy, or any other embassies then you may try this place too. Though little bit expensive than the other ordinary places, you can enjoy the cost worthy meals with Sri Lankan hospitality.

I went to this place with my girlfriend and they offered us seats in the Blue Room which was a bit hot at the time. But it went to normal. Food was awesome. We tried their pizzas, fresh juice and chocolate milkshake. The A/C needs fixing but other than that everything else was awesome. Really friendly staff as well. Definitely... More

If you feel like a good curry then this place is ok its clean and they offer a number of Sri Lankan curries quite ,I am not sure if you need to pay high prices for a good curry then again you do have to pay for the surroundings.

The staff are incredibly friendly and attentive. I've been visiting Bayleaf since it opened, and will continue to do so. The food is good, comforting and consistent!

Back in NY I still dream of the chilli pasta. I tend to eat the same thing every time I go there: Vegetable antipasti or tricolore salad, followed by Spaghetti Aglio Olio e Peperoncino Rosse and Tiramisu to finish it off. Yes, it is a traditional Italian meal but while you are there, you are transported to Italy. Sit outside... More

Last Sunday our family went there for lunch. This is the first time I visited this place which specializes in Italian cuisine. The restaurant is housed in a spacious old colonial house with wooden floors. We opted for the room with air conditioning on the first floor. Though It was a Sunday there were very few guests. The atmosphere was... More
