“Good Sri Lanka food”
Reviewed January 18, 2014 via mobile

Had an evening meal from aLa Carte menu. The Sri Lankan preparations were tasty. The service was good. When I wanted to pay with my UK issued credit card with 'chip & pin' , non of the portable machines would work, due to lack of internet connection. The way the staff dealt with the problem was very unprofessional. It was a poor performance for a 5 star hotel in Colombo, where foreign tourists visit with their credit cards.

“Good Place in Colombo to Dine”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

This restaurant (coffee shop at Cinnamon Lakeside Hotel) is a good place to dine in Colombo. The food served is a mix of Sri Lankan and international but I personally think this place serves the best Sri Lankan food out of all 5 star hotel coffee shops (except the Curry Leaves at Hilton). They have a very good array of desserts. Staff is very friendly and the price is quite reasonable.

“Breakfast Buffet Rocks”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

Selection is unreal. Western, Asian, Sri Lankan.. The choices are endless. In addition its actually open at 3AM to help cure hangovers. It is however very crowded so you may want to go towards 11AM

“Good but not Best”
Reviewed December 19, 2013 via mobile

Buffet starts only at 7pm. Very quiet place for meeting over meal. Similar to usual 5 stars hotel buffet. Foods are good but nothing special. The staffs are very friendly and well trained. The price is a bit high, however it was a treat from a friend hence nothing to complain.
