This is our one of our feel good places to visit for a scrumptious seafood meal in Colombo. Although most of their choices are limited because of this pandemic but as to what they offer is out of this world. You will never go wrong...with a meal here. It's not so busy as well since of the pandemic. I still remember Chandana was the first person who served us on our very first visit and then we met Dhammika who are stalwarts of this Restaurant so as to speak. They're are part of the reason we go back to this lovely place in the heart of Colombo, next to the Regal cinema but very quiet homely place with perfect ambiance for family and friends to meet up for any occasion. Worth every rupee you spent and it's not heavy on your purse. I hope everyone will visit this lovely place and make memories of seafood like we did. It surely does give a good run for their worth when compared to upmarket places like Crab Ministry, Crab Factory, Hilton's Black Pepper etc. Thank you Seafish for a lovely and a memorable evening!More

We had a lovely evening at this restaurant tucked away from the main road down a narrow lane. It was welcomingly untouristy with groups of people having supper after work and a few couples. The staff were all very friendly and we were serenaded by...three elderly Sri Lankan cowboys singing country and western songs and wearing loud shirts and shny hats. We did probably misorder though, finding the 'medium' spiciness of our prawn curry a bit too hot for us, but that was our fault. We liked the home-made paan and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.More

I have travelled to Sri Lanka so many times from USA. Have been to all famous Sri Lankan restaurants in Colombo. This is by far the best Sri Lankan authentic meal I had in a long long time. Service is fantastic. The manager Bandara personally...attended to us and made sure that everything is ok. The server Chandana was better than a 5* restaurant service in USA. More than anything, the food was to die for. I highly recommend the following 1) ros pan 2) roty 3) sear fish 4) mutton curry 5) cattle fish curry 6) prawn curry 7) handallo Etc etc. Highly recommend it.More

I asked a tuk tuk to take me somewhere close to the train station for a good meal. He dropped me at Sea Fish and it was very delicious! I had the prawns curry by recommendation of my waiter Pavithron. The curry was very tasty...and the bread dipped in it was amazing! Big portion and good deal for the price. Service was fast and polite. They have AC dining and outdoor. Outdoor is right next to the train, so just beware you’ll hear it a few times.More

We visited Sea Fish restaurant in our last night in Colombo. Food was very good, we ordered a fresh grilled fish as a main course. However, the most ashtonishing part was the service we received from Chandana! He does this work more than 20 years...and he knows very well how to perform a high standard service of quality and care! Thank you all for making our last night in Sri Lanka so memorable!More

Visited this place for lunch with my work friends . The setting was nice but I personally felt it was a bit too dark for lunch time . Their menu offered alot of sea food dishe varieties just as their name suggests . We had...our reservation done before the visit but they tried to fit in a large group for a smaller table which made us feel a bit packed and not spacious enough . Except of that their food was great. Highly recommended for sea food lovers !!!More
