Food and presentation was average.However, the service was super quick and staff were there to help all the time.

This place is above average for me. The food did not blow me away but it was pretty good. I started off with a mango lassi - it was very very good. But be warned - it is a pretty big glass!!! May not have room left for your meal if you finish it quickly!!! I had the prawns for... More

The sizzle is an old restaurant situated on walukarama road between Galle road and duplication road. The place is in need of an overhaul. Maybe a move too, because they have been at their current premises for about 10 years and sadly the age shows... Their foods are all served on a sizzling plate, even the drinks come with dry...

Have been here a few times. Not my 'go to' restaurant. The menu is vast but at the end they all taste the same to me once the sauce and sides are ordered...food comes out in a sizzling platter. Food bib provided to prevent all the sizzling juices jumping on your clothes. The portions are generous. Dessert is nice...they also... More

The Sizzles is one of our favorite restaurants in Colombo. All the food and drinks come with a sizzling effect. This time I had the bruno's lamb chop and it was fantastic. The mashed potato was mouth watering. The sizzling desserts are the highlights of the sizzling dining experience. The chocolate brownie with vanilla ice-cream was a delight as usual.... More

Description
Sizzlers are a recent 'inno-vention' that consists of an entire meal being served on a cast iron platter, which is in turn placed on a wooden base and served sizzling to your table.

Sizzlers probably originated a few centuries ago when meat was served on a heated cast iron plate to keep it piping hot, while the diner ate his meal. Today, however, they have become a cuisine of sorts by themselves as many specialty restaurants serve only Sizzlers on their menu. A sizzler is a combination of a main dish served with a choice of sauces and a large variety of accompaniments, making it a complete meal by itself!

"The SIZZLE" presents a new line of cuisine to the local palette with great authentic Halal recipes presented in a creative manner, resulting in innovative recipes, delectable combinations, bathed in herbs, eastern flavors - a sense of fusion in taste with a tantalizing aroma. Platters of mouthwatering meats, seafood and veggie delights served sizzling to your table.
