I have to admit we ended up here because Ministry of Crab could not offer crab to those that didn't have a reservation due to a shortage in supply. We weren't disappointed with Semondu as an alternative! Lovely ambience, friendly and prompt service, and good...More

The mixed grill was amazing and the chef was kind enough to make something off menu for us. The stuart was helpful.

If Semondu doesn’t mean “pleasantly surprised” in English, it should do. Run by the catering division of SriLankan airlines, the restaurant flies above all expectations of airline food. Instead of bland meals at 30,000 feet, diners at Semondu get subtlety of flavours, correct cooking, artistic...More
