This has now replaced the Ceylon tavern and we though we would try it as it has just opened. It is a fixed price deal (a tad under £20) and is good value for money if you are hungry. There is a choice of three...More

You're welcomed by two bouncers who don't know how to do their job. You enter the sticky floored room to find a mix of Dorkings worst. The bathroom is superb - if you want to witness lines of people queueing for lines of drugs. The...More

I probably went in set with my expectations too high after all the great reviews. The service was friendly and there’s a good selection of drinks available to cover all tastes. The problem really came with the food which while ‘fine’ just wasn’t anything special....More

What an absolute disaster. I had read very good things about the Ceylon Tavern and was looking forward to my meal. I wish I hadn't. The wrong drinks were brought out (an impressive feat as it was empty), the chilli Paneer starter was rubbery, the...More

Sri Lanka is beautiful island situated off the south coast of India. In its ancestral days it was known as Ceylon. The natural beauty of the Island led to it being called the 'The Pearl of the Indian Ocean'. The island is enriched with tropical forests, diverse landscapes and some of the finest beaches in the world. Our island is also famous for its traditional food and attracts large number of tourists.Sri Lankan villages are friendly and we regard our neighbors as family. There is an old Sri Lankan saying that"you need not have to invite your neighbors for dinner; the mouth-watering aromas are enough as a calling". Our vision is not only to provide you with exceptional Sri Lankan dishes but also to share our welcoming culture and ensure every visit to Ceylon Tavern is as special as your first. Through tasting our dishes and experiencing our friendly customer service, we hope you can truly get a "feel for our origin".
