“They have a Chinese restaurant on the side”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

Built into the hotel is a "Chinese Style" restaurant. They profess to serve other dishes as well. However anything you order will come as a Chinese dish, even the Sri Lankan speciality of Devilled chicken, basically they just serve up Hong Kong style Sweet N' Sour Chicken from the buffet.

“Good food, Colonial feel and Great Vibe!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

Loved it here. Had a meal...sri lankan curries, on the upstairs verandah. Food very good, small selection of wine... nicely chilled! Service was friendly and attentive. Beautiful colonial building and very well kept. The pub atmosphere downstairs seemed fun, live music too.

Highly recommended!

“Lovely spot for an evening drink!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

Skip the busy downstairs pub and head up to the quiet second-floor verandah, looking out over the street below for sunset drink. The colonial atmosphere is lovely and relaxing, and the service is friendly and prompt!
