This was my first visit to explore restaurants in Negembo, and King Coconut Family restaurant was a good experience. This restaurant is located alongside the beach and offer variety of Chinese and seafood options. The restaurant doesn’t have air condition so it could be warm during peak summer. However they use standing fans throughout the restaurant area. The restaurant offers... More

DO NOT GO TO THIS RESTAURANT Having been in Negombo for only one day I was recommended to try the King Coconut Family Restaurant. The relaxed setting, cool beer and view of the sea are as good as it gets. The laminated and picture menu (have you ever eaten at a good place which advertises its food this way?) should... More

Excellent lunch with my family, very new modern fresh interior- great views to the sea. Huge menu with plenty of choices, fast service. Only marked down as loo's were very wet due to beach goers using them and they were lacking in soap.

We went there 3 days for dinner (4th, 17th & 18th July 2016). This 3 days Mr.Asanka was taking care of our table. He was very helpful. Service was good. It's take little more time to bring the food but happy to say that food is delicious. We had only seafoods there it's really nice. It's kind of family restaurant... More

This was the worse dinner we had in Sri Lanka. We were brought to this place by our driver on our last day in Sri Lanka while on the way to the airport. The waiters, maybe captain/ manager? since they put up some superiority air while attending the tables with abrupt attitude. The servings are slow. Not recommended. They were... More

Took forever to get our meals. The rice and curry on offer is pretty basic The fried rice was really good. After I paid the bill I didn't even see any one let alone my change ( assumption that it was a fat tip)

We dropped in with a bunch of friends for lunch at King Coconut. The first impression of the place was pretty good. Nice airy space with cool breeze blowing in from the sea, pleasant view and cut off from the noisy street. The food was decent. It lacked the wow factor but was tasty. Prices were high but considering that... More

King coconut restaurant used to be my in Negombo. But after reopening it turned out to be very disappointing. The establishment is beautiful and the atmosphere is also friendly, but it all come down to the food and service. Because those factors determine whether you had a good time or not. When you compare the old kingcoconut to the new,... More

Food was okay, but quite expensive for Sri Lanka standards. I actually don't know if there is anything at this place, which you could call service. The servant was unpolite, and looked at us as if we had done something wrong be ordering a meal to share. When we asked for the check, he told us a sum (1300 Rs)... More
