Available for both lunch and dinner. Semondu is a must go place for a great dining experience. A bit expensive but i was more than happy to pay the amount for the amazing food and good service which was given by the staff. Keep it up . Cheers.

Done by Sri Lankan Catering so went with high expectations and was not disappointed at all. Lunch was lavish with a 4 course meal, meticulously prepared and served. Excellent food and presentation, very professional service, and even the smallest portions some how end up filling you up. Its fine dining at its best, so its expensive but you do end... More

Semondu is located in the Old Dutch Hospital near Fort in Colombo. It's actually Sri Lankan Airlines's restaurant - on the ground but thankfully the service and the food is much bettter than on the airline. Semondu is very stylish and is an obvious favourite with locals and visitors who were all dining and enjoying their meals when we arrived.... More

You want to have the best Srialankan Crab curry, then look no further, Semondu has to be the number 1 choice. I've tried Ministry of Crabs but I wasn't as satisfied as I am with Semondu. The spices, the aroma and the quantity they r all amazing. The service was excellent too. My wife and I had the best experience... More

Very enjoyable meal in an outside area of an old Dutch colonial hospital. Lots of restaurant options here, but we chose to sit outside at Semondu (also large restaurant inside). Although we had basic food (after a long flight) of burgers and chips, they were absolutely fantastic. Quite extensive menu of finer food options, that I would definitely return to... More

Our group had a variety of dishes however our favourties were the Sri Lankan prawn curry and the baked crab! The staff were very attentive and made us feel welcome. The portions of food are very generous. By Western... More

Love this place. Was there for a celebration, so of course we wanted many things, and we were not disappointed. From the opening tray of bread to the quantity and quality of the food to the drinks, we loved the abundance and the taste. There was also quite a choice for many, and even I (a vegetarian) did not feel... More
