We had lunch on the verandah and enjoyed the experience. It is a beautiful space, lovely furniture, chandeliers and great service. I had visited the place in the 1980s and must say that is has gone through a huge transformation. Some dishes were better than the others - the fish and chips were tasty while the fish steak I ordered... More

Loved sitting on the verandah drinking cocktails and taking in the surrounds and people watching. The wait staff were efficient and personable.

I was surprised to find and Ayurvedic Lunch on the menu card at the Amangalla, which was known as The New Oriental Hotel, NOH, one of the oldest hotels in Sri Lanka, dating back to 1863. It was a very healthy, very tasty lunch. I did not have to worry about cholesterol or blood sugar.

We were here for lunch. Brilliant hotel in the old colonial style. It's like a museum. Had our lunch on the veranda. Good food, friendly and observant staff Recommend to go for tea or lunch. Wonderful to enjoy the environment in this 400 year old hotel

Beautiful, decadent restaurant with very attentive, kind staff and a delicious selection on the menu. Lovely, clean bathroom to wash up in after a stroll around the firt. It is noisy out on the verandah though and the constant presence of flies once the food came detracted from the experience a bit.

This place is hard to beat for a romantic and peaceful meal out on the verandah, with top service and superb ambience. Although my fish was overcooked, the place is so lovely and all my other food and cocktails were delicious. I would have to give it 5 stars.

We had a delightful lunch here with great cocktails. The food was delicious and the service was fine. Attentive and friendly. We were so impressed we returned for dinner. My champagne risotto was delicious but my wife's fish was over cooked. Both entrees were delicious. The head waiter noted our disappointment with the fish and offered a replacement. The offer...

We dropped by at Amangalla for tea one afternoon, the food and quality of service were very good but the charm and setting (wide open balcony at the front and large dining room) made us return for lunch the next day. The lunch was excellent, their "daily changing curry" provides a variety of traditional Sri Lankan dishes and the portions... More

This place is pure opulence at its best. Would have loved to explored this building but that is for guests only of course. We had the Sri Lankan curry (10 curries). The taste and the service surpassed any we have had in Sri Lanka before. It's not the cheapest but treat your self as the same food and service at... More

Definitely worth a visit. My friend and I decided to splurge and try dinner here. I had the Mahi with fennel and a citrus vinaigrette which was very average(and a bit fishy) but she had the traditional Sri Lankan curry which was a massive amount of food and really delicious. We had a nice bottle of wine and desserts and... More
