Totally miss an Evening at Lords due to the on going curfew/lock down in Sri Lanka. The overall experience first class. However, during lock down Lords have been able to carry out home deliveries. Well recommended. Variety of excellent food at reasonable prices.. Food delivered...at a time you requested. Just about worked through the Menu. Particular liking for fish and chips. If you have not tried the Delivery Service please do.More

This is by far the best bar/ restaurant in Negombo. Firstly the highly trained staff are a delight, exceptionally friendly and polite. The care and attention they show to all of their customers is a real inspiration . Lords has a very large dining and...bar area , so customer safety regarding social distancing, cleanliness in both the restaurant and bar areas comes highly appreciated. Food is of a 5 star standard and the selection of fantastic cocktails and beers at the bar come at a great 30% discount . Great ambiance, fantastic staff outstanding food and drinks this is a must destination any time you visit Negombo. Many thanks to Martin and his team for a truely fantastic evening at Lords, will definitely be back to visit you all again soon.More

Around 25 of us gathered for lunch at Lords and it was really excellent occasion. Worthy of mention were the prawn cocktails and the fish and chips - all enjoyed with very good live music.

Food was great obviously. But what I am so amazed was their hospitality. Our waiter ; Naresh was so friendly and polite. Not only he served his best to us, but also he took us to show the restaurant around and even offered us espresso...free of charge before we leave. The live music was also very entertaining. This place was once a very crowded place but due to covid-19, it has gone down. 52 staff members have come down to 7 now. This place deserves more customers. We will come back again. For sure.More

I come to Sri Lanka fairly regularly and this is, without a doubt, my favorite restaurant. Not only can you get great Sri Lankan food (try the prawn curry!) but lots of international cuisine too. The staffer courteous and professional and clearly feel like they're...part of a family and, as if this weren't enough, the owner rescues street dogs so you know your money is being put to great use.More

Tasty Sri Lankan food, very courteous Sri Lankan staff, but the setting is simply not to my taste. It is clearly oriented towards tourists who enjoy purple neon lighting, international food (which monopolised the menu) and live anglophone music. It was highly recommended when I...asked for a “typical Sri Lankan restaurant”, so I was naturally disappointed, but I should have known better being as it is owned by an Englishman & called Lord’s - I only have myself to blame!More
