Sizzlers are a recent 'inno-vention' that consists of an entire meal being served on a cast iron platter, which is in turn placed on a wooden base and served sizzling to your table. Sizzlers probably originated a few centuries ago when meat was served on a heated cast iron plate to keep it piping hot, while the diner ate his meal. Today, however, they have become a cuisine of sorts by themselves as many specialty restaurants serve only Sizzlers on their menu. A sizzler is a combination of a main dish served with a choice of sauces and a large variety of accompaniments, making it a complete meal by itself! "The SIZZLE" presents a new line of cuisine to the local palette with great authentic Halal recipes presented in a creative manner, resulting in innovative recipes, delectable combinations, bathed in herbs, eastern flavors - a sense of fusion in taste with a tantalizing aroma. Platters of mouthwatering meats, seafood and veggie delights served sizzling to your table.

Went to this place with a friend and it was a great experience. The aroma and the way they present food is unique. Food is excellent. Not too pricy. Arround 1500 to 2000 person.

Mostly I would like not to give negative feedback but just to tell what I experienced, food was not totally bad but it was over flavored where the eater cannot taste the original. Price is quite high. And finally I had to wait 20 min to get the bill prepared. :-(

Thank you very very much for your fantastic review. We love it and specially the five star rating. Yes, Lamb that we use is from Australia and dinners love the preparations on a hot sizzling plate. This is one of our favourite meals. Regards, Tushar Amalean, Owner of The Sizzle More

The vegetarian sizzler I had (with mushroom-garlic sauce, rice, cottage cheese patty and veggies) was awesome! I love sizzlers and this is the only place in Colombo where I found them. The non-veg sizzler (beef/noodles/mushroom sauce) was not that great though. My friend found the beef very tough and of low quality. The ambiance is not very good either. On... More

Thank you for your review. We appreciate your valuable feedback. For a couple of days, we did have an issue with the flies in the rainy weather, however, we have purchased and installed additional new fly killers which to some extent have helped us. We have also made arrangements for standby citronella candles to be placed on the tables where... More

Having visited The Sizzle many times during the last couple of years, I would say this truly is one of a kind experience.
