The menu is clearly influenced by Dutch/Anglo Srilankan milieu...I enjoyed the savouries. The Bakery fare was more interesting than the dinner; the bread pudding was delicious

Comparing with the price of food the potion size is very small, and the food doesn't have that much quality. Service also not that good

I am not that much interested in this place as it is in the average ratings according to my examination. Food was not bad and so their service.

A very old chain of restaurants, the food is good specially the cakes, but the short eats needs new fillings as there is mostly pastry. The rice & curry too is very good.So is the service. Fortunately they have many branches with take away outlets, as the Colpetty restaurant has parking problems.

Host/owner (older heavyset gentlemen with beard) was rude and unwelcoming. He walked past me twice without offering a greeting or asking me anything. I had to literally stop him and ask to be seated. Which he then just pointed to a table and walked away. Through the course of my meal, I would learn this is normal behavior for host/owner.... More

This is a wonderful little place with great local food at really good prices. Delicious. Very popular with local people. They don't serve alcohol - not a criticism - just an observation. A great place to go for a really good Sri Lankan meal

A nice little place with a small but effective menu. Mostly local food Rice & curry in different ways. Price worthy and no alcohol gives this restaurant a nice touch... Sitting inside at the sane time outside.

Mid morning today and I was meeting my Travel Agent to Square him off for my trip. After finishing with the Money Changer we visited the Green Cabin outlet on Chatham Street in the Colombo Fort area for a cold drink and a snack. A decent range of snacks, cakes and pastries on view - too early for lunch but... More
