“Excellent and well priced”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

Excellent food. Great choices. I had a difficult time deciding and m a picky, healthy eater! The prices are very reasonable - our group felt we found a real gem. Will be back!

“Nice while we were there...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

Seemed nice food but about 6 hours later I was very unwell. Really disappointing way to end to our trip, we even had to reschedule our flight the next day (with Sri Lankan airlines!) and pay an for additional hotel night. The least they can do would be to reschedule the flight for free as it was their restaurants fault in the first place!

“Awesome food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

We stumbled upon this place by accident, were really hungry..so decided to step inside Cafe Semondu. Out of this world prawn curry and crab in black pepper sauce. (I'm hungry now just thinking of this).

Nice and attentive staffs.

“Best of Fusion!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

It was my first try at Semondu with my husband on 26th June 2014. We had an enjoyable dinner. Indeed it has lived up to its standard of 4.5 rating. But I would give it full score of 5! Ambience was good, service was fast, food was tasty. Both of us shared the delicious crispy fried calamari and another Hot Appetizer; he had grilled cajun chicken while I had Trio at Seafood for mains. Even though we were quite filled from the appetizers, it is just impossible to resist the mains which was well prepared and presented. We both left the restaurant feeling satisfied and will surely come again! Cheers!

Went with office colleagues. Great variety. Super ambience and good quick service. We were done in 45 minutes. A must visit restaurant at the Dutch hospital precinct!
