“Business Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

This was the second time that we visited for the Business Lunch. The price has been increased a couple of times, and is now Rs. 1,850 (with tax) per person as at September 2012. This is about $14. A revolving menu is now available for the lunch, so that if you visit more than once a week, you get different choices. There are four mains to choose from, while the starters, 1 soup and desserts have to be served buffet style. If you have seven or more people, you can get the private room. There is an extensive wine cellar (underground) with Chilean, French and Australian wines. The prices are competitive, but by no means cheap (say compared to Tao's Epicurean wine list). The dinner menu is much more expensive, so the Business Lunch is reasonable value compared to 5-star hotels in the vicinity. The menu on Tuesday and Friday seems to be the best. The fish is fried to a crisp on Tuesday (like a wayside fish 'n' chip place in UK), not the expected soft baked seer.

“An elegant restaurant in Colombo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012 via mobile

The staff at this hotel are very efficient and pleasant. The food was excellent although my delicious ginger, chilli, coriander, coconut soup had a little too much garlic than I normally like. Otherwise, the food was very good. The atmosphere of the restaurant was quiet and elegant.
