Description: Sizzlers are a recent 'inno-vention' that consists of an entire meal being served on a cast iron platter, which is in turn placed on a wooden base and served sizzling to your table. Sizzlers probably originated a few centuries ago when meat was served on a heated cast iron plate to keep it piping hot, while the diner ate his meal. Today, however, they have become a cuisine of sorts by themselves as many specialty restaurants serve only Sizzlers on their menu. A sizzler is a combination of a main dish served with a choice of sauces and a large variety of accompaniments, making it a complete meal by itself! "The SIZZLE" presents a new line of cuisine to the local palette with great authentic Halal recipes presented in a creative manner, resulting in innovative recipes, delectable combinations, bathed in herbs, eastern flavors - a sense of fusion in taste with a tantalizing aroma. Platters of mouthwatering meats, seafood and veggie delights served sizzling to your table.

We only went to grab a quick dessert here so can only comment on their sweet offerings which were good! I had a butterscotch cheesecake sizzle type dessert (forgot the specific name!) but it was very good. Highly recommend the cheesecake options for dessert in Colombo. My mum opted for the fruit and nut ice cream which wasn't that great though. Service was excellent with friendly waiters. A quirky hidden away little place

We have been meaning to try this place out for some time and the wait was kind of worth it..
Good food..sizzling as per their promise and very generous portion sizes...at a price!
Decent location although the theme of the restaurant needs to get more consistent. Staff are attentive and the service is quite good considering the considerable footfall they attract.
Not exactly value for money but worth the price for a first try! Will recommend though.

I haven't eaten a sizzling food anywhere else expect "The Sizzle." Its so delicious. Smelting Pot is my favourite dish. Its some what expensive but it's tasty. The best time to go to sizzle is, during lunch times. I wish you all go and try it out.

From the moment we entered the restaurant I felt like I'd walked into a crowd that was very loud & didn't mind the annoying noise levels. It's not the ideal place for a family to dine in amidst the loud conversations & the never-ending clankety-clanks of cutlery.

No, not if you were expecting a pleasant soothing ambience to enjoy a meal with family. It's more of a cheap & inferior eating house. Mind you, they don't price it like an eating house but a star hotel.

food is really good, friendly staff and the portions are really nice with a lot of variety. ...

drinks and the desserts are also good...
really worthwhile for the price paid. ...

people who don't have patience should avoid visiting here coz the food is served really hot... so you should sit back and feel the aroma for the food to cool down. ....
