Visited Semondu for lunch - twice. Good food, good service, relaxed atmosphere. An oasis within the busy city of Colombo. Would recommend the seafood. Run by Srilankan Airlines, so don't forget to collect your Flysmiles! HSBC card holders get a good discount.

We have enjoyed several meals at Semondu which have always been excellent. The service and ambience is good. However, the range of desserts available is limited and the main menu could do with some new dishes.

The food was very good, the beer was cold and the service much better than in most other restaurants I have been to in Colombo. And if this was not enough I even got some miles credited to my frequent flyer account when I paid the bill.

I can really recommend this place. I went there yesterday and did not know the place .The service was excellent from the moment we came and left the restaurant. The waiter was very kind because he puts the effort in explaining the menu so we knew what to choose. The food was amazing !!!! :-) you will love this place

The food was bad. Waiter taking the order did not take it correctly. Even though it's supposed to be a good restaurant the waiters don't even repeat the order after writing it down.

Located at the Dutch Hospital building and operated by Sri Lankan Catering this is a lovely place for Lamprais, grilled fish and great fruit juices. The service was always excellent and the food fresh and hot. A very nice place to unwind for lunch during a hot busy day.

Seemed nice food but about 6 hours later I was very unwell. Really disappointing way to end to our trip, we even had to reschedule our flight the next day (with Sri Lankan airlines!) and pay an for additional hotel night. The least they can do would be to reschedule the flight for free as it was their restaurants fault... More
