We went with office friends for a lunch. It was not worth. They serve lot of rice and bread but little veggies. not much of choice either. Arabian dishes were there, but not up to stranded, compared to the Arabian food I have eaten.

I arrived Arabian Knights at 10:55pm. They didn’t serve me by saying there are closed at 11:00. This is unacceptable. The worst service I ever had in Sri Lanka

Hi; Normally the kitchen closes at 10:45 and stops serving new dishes. It’s standard practice in many restaurants that prepare fresh food. Apologies that you could not be accommodated.

The place serves middle eastern food but not so authentic arabic. Service is very slow and lethargic. Mezze combo is good. The dips that served with food are horrible. The kebabs should be fresh. Not pre cooked and heated up on order. Value for money...More

Located down a narrow lane off the Galle road with hardly any parking they provide a refreshingly different experience in dining. They have great authentic Arabian cuisine. Wish they had Shisha to complete the experience.

Please let me confess - we did not actually visit this restaurant, we ordered take-out after reading reviews on Google (and because it opened early on a Sunday evening for the kids dinner). Our order was delivered promptly, prices are well reasonable and the food...More
