When serving sizzling dishes, it is difficult to breath inside the restaurant due to smoke from the food.

They don't serve alcohol and you are prohibited from bringing in your bottle either so this is best suited for Grannies and Kids rather than for adult dining. However it's best to keep kids away from here as there are too many hazards for kids. For example their drinks come with a piece of Dry Ice at the bottom to... More

Yes, we agree. In Sri Lanka the Mongolian style is something like a mixed of meat , vegetables and rice/noodles with some sauce stir fried in a wok and given in a plate. This is not the authentic Mongolian food, but a style that Srilankans like. Mongolian really does not come with any rice or noodles and the taste is... More

Had i not been familiar in Colombo, i would struggle to find it, so the best way is to get there by a taxi for sure. It is just a stone throw from Galle Road, but hidden in a side alley. This was my second time and it has been 3-4 years since last time. The food was the same... 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.
