We were brought here to cinnamon grand hotel for lunch buffet.
There was a huge choice of starters, salads, soups, mains and beautifully presented desserts.
The prawns at starter were gorgeous, in fact everything was great. Highly recommend

We arrived in Colombo in an early morning flight and were desperately looking for a place to eat at 6:00 in the morning. We reached Cinnamon grand and were guided to Taprobane for the breakfast buffet.

One of the best breakfast buffet spreads in Colombo, good variety and comfortable place to while away a few hours. Its a must try for anyone visiting Colombo.

Being here on Buddhist New Year, there was no alcohol served. Pity as their bubbly brunch is very affordable. As I am spoilt with Sunday brunches in Bangkok, this one was far bellow of what I am used to in Thailand. On the other hand the price is also a fraction of what I pay there.
All sauces on the cold buffet were prepared with a heavy cheap mayo, so they nearly tasted all the same. Cold cuts were most likely local products, no imported salami or Parma ham. The same goes for the cheeses, maybe not local but cheap products.
Indian food was good. The carvings looked very dry so I did not try them. The dessert buffet was surprisingly big and good. Seems their pastry chef knows what he is doing.

A wide variety of flavours and cuisine to choose from. Love the salad selections. A paradise for non-vegetarians. They could improve on the vegetarian selections though.
