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.

Great Sizzler's with a lot of choices and the quality of the food is great. A disadvantage is that they do not serve beer/alcohol in the place.

Good food with a good Islamic vibe. I think it must be the only halal place in Colombo because it is always busy with large Muslim families. Very good service who make you feel very welcome. Lots of food. Even the drinks sizzle as they can put dry ice in their Lima sodas! Great for kids. The hot metal plates... More

Went with my family for dinner at The Sizzle last night and it was a highly disappointing experience.

The food at Sizzle are sizzling. Worth for money and the presentations of foods are really cool and innovative. There is a good variety too.

Have visited many times. Prices have increased recently which now would be minimum 1,500/- per head Large portions, which sometimes can be shared with 2 persons. It's for family or friends not a romantic place. As it's not quite.

Lunch or dinner - the food is great and the drinks (all non-alcoholic) are wonderful. I recommend the lime Daiquiri - the glass is piled high with frozen lime juice with a dash of grenadine - a great thirst quencher. The meals are very large - so make sure you have worked up an appetite before you go. We eat... More
