Fun attraction

A must visit place for all the tourists. It was not really crowded, though. We went here for lunch during our visit. Although, there were not many shops.

Walking in the fresh air on a lonely Friday evening, cannot find a better place for a sopping complex in the boundaries of Colombo

The complex has many expensive stores with not so interesting merchandise, and some expensive restaurants for tourists. Not worth the trip unless you want to spend 15 minutes walking through.

Quite spaces and great selection of restaurants inside the complex . Open seating is quite something to sip some iced blended coffee . Also some local boutiques available . This place has history .
