“Authentic Sri Lankan food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014 via mobile

This is one of the best Sri Lankan Authentic food out let's in Colombo. Food has been done on traditional recipes. 10 of us visited for Dinner and service was reasonable. This is still a new restaurant and service will further improve with the time.

“Authentic Sri lankan Food at Very reasonable rates”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

the newly opened Upali's restaurant near the Town Hall offers fine dining but at a very reasonable and unbelievable price.
There is a wide variety of food items to choose from . But I think one should go for Sri Lankan food.

“Sri Lankan at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

Loved my meal here. The food is authentic and covers regional delicacies from the north and south. The fresh roast paan was outstanding. The kalu pol kos ata was also fantastic. Everything we tried was good. The void for a authentic Sri Lankan restaurant in colombo that tastes home cooked has finally been filled. Will definitely go again.
