Fusion dinning at 35000 feet at the precincts of Dutch Hospital, Colombo...

The Semondu fine dining fusion restaurant is situated at a very strategic location in the Dutch Hospital, Colombo. To our pleasant surprise we learnt that this was a subsidiary and is owned by the Srilankan airways. As we wanted a bite for lunch this was the only place open after 2:00 pm in the... read more

Ptolemy called Sri Lanka, Semondu. The hospitality of Sri Lankans is more ancient than the name and Semondu is certainly a flagship for it. The menu is varied, modern and a fusion of many palates and presented well. I liked the underlit flooring which enhanced, rather than detracted from the huge, wooden Dutch period windows that encased the room. I... More

Decided to go once again with a friend. What a transformation from the previous visit. Much brighter, friendlier a very different place. Very good dinner menu with appropriate quality service, enjoyed tremendously and happy to return again. It's always good to see a better and improved service. But expensive for what is served.

Semondu is perfectly located at the heart of the business centre in Colombo, inside the complex Dutch Hospital. Food is fresh and service is fast. Make sure you taste their garlic bread as well!

This is an ideal place for business dinners and you would love the food on offer. Portions are just right in size but the price is a little bit high.

An average experience, relatively good food, not truly authentic, service can improve quite a bit, nice atmosphere, but the same reason causes wait staff to take a long time to serve, if you are not seated in the center

We stayed in Hilton nearby so we decided to check out this restaurant. Food here is great, we ordered two 3-course lunch specials, and they are both great.
