I have been visiting this place over the past couple of years, and always keep coming back. Food is tasty and portions generous, and quality has been consistent. stick to the set menus and there is no delay, however if you order from their other menus expect a delay. I opt for self service so there are less delays. Parking... More

I have been to Urban Kitchen many times. Each time, I'm impressed by the range of food from all parts of the world offered at reasonable prices. Each time, by the time the food comes, I'm fuming and hungry due to the extent of time they take to serve anything other than their set menus. To give them their due,... More

Nice place and there is a children room. Lots of variety. Prices consider high in compare with the quality of food. It is more like a food court than a restaurant.

I have been a long standing customer and have enjoyed many meals dine in and delivery. It pains me to write this negative review, but when no action is taken from management when a problem happens, it gives me little choice. Problem was with my delivery. 2 hours, cold food, no follow up, no apologies, nothing. I phoned 3 times... More

This restaurant is one of few that can dare boast of ample parking, a huge shopping center (by current Sri Lankan standards) and a casual atmosphere. The dining area (hall) is akin to a food court in a large shopping mall. It is casual and you can go clad in shorts and sandals. It is air-conditioned. There is a kiddies... More

We were at UK for lunch with a party of 5 people. The food was good and the portions were also reasonable. But I would say that for a place like UK the prices are a bit too high. We spent about Rs.1000 per person for a basic lunch. In addition to that they add about 1/4 of you bill... More
