Good food with a sizzling experience. However prices have now gone up and value for money isn't there any 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

I'm not a very frequent visitor for this place. If I'm not mistaken visited couple of times before this visit , may be in 2012 & 2013. What are different no change in service, courtesy and attention to guests. Nice to see a place which maintains such standards for many years. Last week a guest from our neighbouring country visited... More

Sizzles one of the places we catup for dinner.. They serve delicious food hot hot.. Very good service and good place for family get together.. They do free deco for special events.. However in the recent past the quantities have reduced.. Certain dishes seems to be expensive and small compared star hotel buffets in colombo.

Been there a few times. Good food and service. Can't complain. Portion sizes were bigger before but has now reduced tremendously so not really making it as worth for the money spent as before.

I am a regular customer here however, during my last visit the experience is pretty bad. The food arrived bit late however, it is over cooked so that we could not enjoy our lunch.

This is very sad. We are very sorry for your disappointment. We appreciate your feedback which will help us in maintaining our standard. Since you have mentioned it was for lunch, so we are guessing that it could be one of the Mongolian, Chinese or Indian meal which should be served on lesser heat plate, whereas our Chef may have...

Went for lunch and thought that the place was a bit dark but if the food is good who cares right.. So staff was very polite and willing and quite fast. I had some bread with cheese and spicy sauce that wasn't bad.Very simple but not bad. Steak was good.like everyone says - I think also written on the menu... 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.
