We really enjoyed our meal at Lords the children fed the fish and after our meal we went out the back to have our feet in the fish tanks for a massage. We went back 5 times the children loved it. Highly Recomended.

We ate some wonderful curries in Sri Lanka; the best was at Lords. I had the mushroom, raisin and cashew curry and my wife had the crab, both were superb. The food is well presented, the portions are large and are excellent value. The waiter asked how spicy we wanted our curries, we went for hot. It was so hot... More

Great location. Had a lovely vibe to it and we were the only customers at that time.

That aside the food was excellent and when we came back in the evening the place was full. Keep up the good work... More

We googled best restaurants in Negombo and Lords came up (and so it should!). Don't be put off by the multitude of garish lights outside. It was one of the best meals we had in our time in Sri Lanka. It truly feels like the food is cooked with love and care. And the place has a lot of soul.... More

I read about Lords on TA so when we arrived it was one spot we wanted to visit. It was so good we returned on our way home 3 weeks later. The place is very quaint and the ambiance is relaxed with dim lighting and two fish ponds in the middle of the area. There was nice live music playing,... More
