Busy place with live music

Not a bad restaurant on the beach, good for families, large menu and very busy, but service good. Nice to see locals as well as tourists

It was quite a conscious decision to go for dinner at King Coconut restaurant in Negombo, having read recent reviews that gave very negative evaluations. Indeed, based on the evaluations, I cancelled a table for 7 that I had reserved for our friends and us two days earlier. Nevertheless, I tend to be contrarian and decided to give it a... More

I used to visit this place for some time. The only attraction was the food. My perception changed after my last visit. I do not recommend this place to any one. Food is average with no value for money. Service is pathetic, we were seated for about 10 minutes but no one was bothered to serve us or to offer... More

As s group of 8 we visited after being recommended by a tuk tuk driver. It was pretty terrible. It took nearly 2 hours to be served. Food was less than average. Wouldn't recommend.

This place is so filthy I'm surprised we didn't get sick from just the drinks. Let alone the few fries we had. The beer was cooled in a washed up styro container which was about to grow its own heartbeat. There's much better and friendlier places in town.

We went for lunch but had to wait over an hour for our meals. Our drinks arrived in 2 minutes which meant that we had finished them long before our food had arrived. The food came in large portions. However, our meals were bland and boring, except for the lasagna my brother ordered which was very tasty and took an... More
