Great variety of various dishes to suit the palates of every nationality. Staff was great with a professional touch from F & B Supervisor Mrs. Samadhi and Chef de Partie Mr. Hettiarachi and team. It is also the ideal choice restaurant for breakfasts with great varieties of foods for every nationality.

Wow! What a scrumptious array of food! The food includes Eastern and Western cuisine. We enjoyed the smorgasbord breakfast and dinner which was well worth every penny we paid and was very reasonably priced!

The sunday brunch menu was just too exhaustive. It had counters from india,china,japan,sri lanka and other continental varieties. Well worth the price. A definite must do for sunday.

Comparing to other restaurants in Colombo, Cinnamon has the best foods. I was impressed with the warm welcome by Enoka, she made it a nice day.

There's absolutely no variety in their offerings, and given that we were visiting in the last few days of year i.e. festive season, we were really shocked. The wait staff is very incompetent, despite being patient, they just didn't get it right with any of the customers around. Also, why is this dining area this small?!

The Dining room is a modern, busy buffet restaurant presenting a dazzling array of choices, from Sushi, salads, pasta, international meats and sri lankan cuisines. Especially on Sunday when the buffet is further expanded into the hotel lobby presenting an even more lavish selection of carving favourites and options for all to enjoy. As a multinational family of eight, each... More

You can see this restaurant as soon as you enter the hotel, the buffets are usually in this restaurant, nice but small since buffet occupies lots of space!
