It was very good but last time terrible

This was a good place I usually visits when traveling around Negombo. Food was delicious and service was better since past few years before renovation. And at that time also food came late. But we used to accept it. If I not visited yesterday (Or I not got that experience) I'm sure I rate them as... read more

Visiting King Coconut Restaurant, you are greeted by an open restaurant, which you are able to see the ocean. The food is pretty ordinary and quick pricey. As soon as the food comes, you are greeted with a lot flies that are quite irritating. The service is pretty ordinary and the restaurant looks like an average restaurant.

The crab was nasty. So small and way over priced. And they don't seems to care. You can find way better restaurants steps away in any direction......Sad spot.

Waited one hour and still the food didn't come and was up to my limit of tolerance (from 1.30 -2.30 was waiting ) and walked out of the place..would never visit this place again!! I frequently eat out from restaurants and this was the first time I ever found a place to be this impolite.

The staff here should be trained in customer service before anything. Rude staff and delay in serving ruins this nice environment. One would expect some good customer service for the price of the food.

King Cononut is a bit away from Lewis Place, and offers a big, spacious place. (I think it offers a view on the ocean, but couldn't say for sure, as I went there for dinner.) Nice food, very long menu, ok service. A good address, but not my favorite in Negombo

The menu was heavily westernised, and that's rarely good in Sri Lanka, so we stuck with the curries. It was good. An enjoyable meal at the end of our Sri Lankan trip.

I came here one night around 8:30 and I had to call a Stewart (I really pity him). I tried to order a pizza but they said they were out of pizza, and after the meal I had to wait for almost an hour for the bill. I clearly do not recommend this place for ANYONE.

Walked into this newly built restuarant next door to their old one but when a toilet was required--without any explanation initially--I was directed towards the beach and then the security guy asked me to walk across in the dark to next door building which was poorly lit with a damp, dirty toilet. Thankfully it was not raining. It is shocking,... More
