“Sea food experience at the cinnamon grand”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2014

The service is tremendously slow. To catch a waiter's eye after being served with beverages is difficult. While the kitchen being there is good for selection the heat generated is far too much. Pricey.

“Wonderful prawns in red curry”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

Great prawns and wonderful shoelobsters (Moreton bugs) in black pepper sauce! Nice steamed fish and nice selection of fresh sesfood. Modern surroundings and nice to see what is going on in the open kitchen. Tuna has been a problem if you want it red.... But overall a nice experience.

“Easily best but..”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2014 via mobile

I ate here two nights on the go
The fish selection and service must be the best you will find anywhere in the world ... However on my second visit all the food was drenched in oil - disgusting!
I mentioned this to the waiter and he duly reported this feedback to head chef

What followed was something which every restaurant should follow

I was offered full refund and refill on my glass of wine . Of course I refused as the food was still very good

What else can I say - even after a bad visit it's still one of the best seafood restaurants in Sri Lanka if not world - enjoy!
