The menu was interesting. The starters tasted good, but the rest of the meal did not taste good. The service was average as well. I don't think I would return to this restaurant.

We went on a Sunday afternoon for their brunch. The menu provides an extensive brunch menu with some interesting cocktail choices as well. The cocktails were quite pricey compared to the rest or Colombo, however, the food was delicious and it's a lovely spot in...the heart of Colombo.More

The service at Table by Taru had been exceptional from the point of reservation, all the way through to the end of our dinner. I contacted TBT via Instagram, where they were extremely responsive and accommodative. I was in touch with Dion, who also served...us that night, a special thanks to Dion for his charisma and attentiveness, he truly made our experience wonderful. The food and cocktails were simply incredible, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The ambience was amazing, perfect for a romantic setting as we were celebrating our 05 year anniversary. We were also served a delicious anniversary cake complimentary of them, which was a very nice touch. We were humbled by the consistency in their service and the attention to detail by the owners and Management in making the place as welcoming and enjoyable as it is. Highly recommend for fine dining, and we can’t wait to be back!More

I'm going to be the one with an unpopular opinion over here and say it as it is. The food is ok. It's nothing extraordinary. The ambience is perfect for an evening out with your loved ones but is it really amazing food as advertised?...Nope. I've been here twice and both times with a group of friends for dinner and we always left feeling they tried really hard to be fine dining but just didn't make it.. Some dishes on the menu are actually pretty good but the overall experience is a 3/5. P.S- don't bother ordering the steak. It's really not worth the money you pay for. Cocktails are good. Well trained staff.More

We had heard so much about this restaurant and during our brief stay in Colombo earlier this month made a special visit here. Very disappointed. The ambience wasn't great. Beautiful art displays downstairs and dining on the upper floor, divided in two sections. Nothing special,...felt like an average roof terrace. Busy evening and staff scuttled about. Food was okay but arrived very late to the table. Will not rush back here.More

Fantastic food, wonderful location! Arun at TBT was a fantastic host! If you’re here, definitely have the Pepper Beef Carpaccio and the Norwegian Salmon Tartare

We had a fun post lockdown brunch at Table by Taru. It is a lovely restaurant in the heart of the city. They do offer a good wine menu and an interesting brunch menu with a mix of both Sri Lankan and western dishes. As...always the food tasted amazing and the service was impeccable. But my only pain point was the heat which is true anywhere in the city at this time of the year.More

We love this place! The food is fantastic, service is exemplary and the surroundings are beautiful. It’s like a haven in the middle of the city! Breakfast is fantastic- try the Turkish Eggs! The best kept secret in Colombo is their chocolate salted caramel tart…...which they also deliver!! Great place, highly recommended.More

Taru’s has been an all-time favourite of ours (and here I speak of my family & friends). The food they serve lends itself to the character of the spaces they create, which are sublime. We love the ambience of their boutique hotels, the service (always...warm and friendly) and the food - its hasn’t let us down. Their service and delivery (following protocol) has been no different to our in house dining experiences. The Taru experience is an embodiment of all that’s right in my island home, in a nutshell.More

I've been a frequent visitor of TbT restaurant when there were no travel restrictions and found that they are an amazing restaurant with value for money, fine dining. However their delivery service during lockdown has been outstanding. Being a frequent subscriber of delivery services during...lockdown, sometimes i have been inundated with calls from deliver personnel trying to locate my house, or informing me that items on my order are not available. TbT however, has never ceased to deliver the goods as described with little hassle to the consumer. The food has arrived warm, and the delivery people courteous and pleasant and most importantly on time. The taste of the food has been also amazing.More

Ordered dinner delivery given we are stuck indoors and we’re craving some non Sri Lankan food. The chicken pie is definitely the best pie I have had in Sri Lanka and it arrived with the pastry still crisp. Also ordered a variety of other dishes...which were all tasty and well packed. Will definitely be ordering again.More
