The food is impeccable, great flavor and large portion sizes. The ambience is great and the service is above par. This is a regular place I visit when I'm in town and never disappointing. I tried the hot butter cuttle fish, kan kin, chopsuey rice....bliss.

Overall, really great experience visiting this bar/restaurant. Slightly chilled has exceptional views to start off! It is the perfect place to unwind a little, forget your problems, and just soak up some atmosphere, great food and beer.

This is a brilliant place to spend an evening chilling out. Brilliant tasty Chinese is what we chose and I especially liked the eggplant in a clay pot and peppers in black bean sauce. Service was swift and our waiter was pleasant. Music good as was the view. It is quite an easy walk from town; we are in our... More

The chicken with chili I had here was excellent. They charged extra for the rice without telling me, but it was only a 100rp so it's not a big deal. Saw a lot of people eating 'western' food (pasta, burgers) and that looked more than fine as well.

A little bit on the pricier side for Sri Lanka but worth it. The food is authentic Chinese and very yummy. The view is also pretty nice.

Thanks for the nice write up. I am afraid the government have put alcohol and cigarettes prices up a lot. Everything has doubled. When I came here 5 years ago you could buy a bottle of Arrack for 650 and now it is around 1600. Regards Michael More

Staff a little pushy with the drinks. First round of cocktails we had were delish, the next round not so good. Nice view at sunset.

As others have said, the food is pretty average while the view is great. The seating is on benches, which means you won't stay for long. They had a high chair for kids.

Our tour guide Chaminda Kulansa took us to this great Chinese style restaurant. There seemed to be some western and Sri Lankan food on the menu as well, but we had grown accustomed to rely on our guide's suggestions so we selected only Chinese. And it really was a good suggestion. Everything was really delicious. The restaurant is located on... More

The sign outside the door proudly proclaims the establishment is "British run". This should have been a warning as to what we'd find upstairs. The anonymous, uninspired, entirely tourist-populated bar, playing Cafe Del Mar, reminded me of those backpacker bars that are ubiquitous everywhere from Mozambique to Thailand. Skeptical of the Mexican offerings on the menu, we opted for noodles.... More

I think the warning should have come long before being outside my restaurant. In all guidebooks and Tripadvisor the name is written as " Slightly Chilled Lounge Bar" Now do you really have to be a rocket scientist to put the name "Lounge Bar" and guess what music will be played? My only advice I can give you now if... More
