I just had my dinner here with 2 other backpackers. We planned to save the best for last so we came here on our 3rd and last night in Negombo. The service was good. The waiters were attentive and smiling all the time. I had chicken and mango curry and it was delicious! After we ate, our waiter gave us... More

Lords is on the fancy side for being Sri Lanka, quite expensive but also very nice food and professional waiters and entertainment. The little foot-eating fishes in the back and the art center adds to the image. Good stuff!

Visited this place because it was #1 on tripadvisor. As it turned out, their chicken thai soup with lemongrass was the best dish I ever had during my 10 days in Sri Lanka.

I went twice the lords restaurant and both of the times I ordered the same meal, fillet steak. As I'm not a big fan of sea food I usually rather to have beef meat. The steak was ok, not the best taste especially for the price, but compare to other steaks I had in Sri Lanka it probably would be... More

We visited Lords restaurant after reading the fantastic reports on Tripadvisor and we discovered that these reports are indeed well deserved. The restaurant is spotlessly clean and has a lively, buzzy atmosphere, but without being too noisy. The food portions are huge and there is a wide variety of food to suit all tastes, all of which is of very... More

Found Lords on Trip Advisor and booked a table. Lovely atmosphere. Live singing and very busy. Had cocktails and ordered crab curry. Was told this wouldn't be too spicey but it was very hot (to my pallette). Husband had a steak which he said was tough. But overall it was a lovely evening. Food cost more than we had been... More

we ate at Lords this evening and the food and service definitely lived up to all the recommendations. We shared starters of Thai Crab Cakes and Fish Kebabs with peanut sate and then had fish curry and chicken and cashew nut curry for our main dishes. I was especially impressed with the service. The waiter asked how spicy we would... More
