“Great food and very good service”
Reviewed May 1, 2014 via mobile

I've been to Xilaton a few times and consistently the food has been great. We got a private room for dinner and it was very nice. The seafood fried rice was nicely done and the dishes were tasty.

The room ambience could have been better. Overall it's a very good restaurant with great food and good staff.

“Perfect Chinese Dishes. Bit Overpriced !”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

Though I have visited this place couple of times, my last visit was in Dec 2013. They serve very nice Chinese dishes.

But they take little bit of time to process the order. Also they have private rooms which can be reserved early. Enjoyed one of best 'Garupa' here.

Feels like they charge too much for the dishes but food is very nice. I do recommend this place for dinner.

“Good food but prices are too high for this type of restaurant”
Reviewed January 18, 2014

The food is good can not complain much about the dishes except the pricing. I believe for this level of restaurant the prices are too high. I have gone to this restaurant many times and they have actually reduced the volume of the dish sizes as well. Therefore you are actually loosing out not only on the prices. Soda is Rs 160 and Rs 230 beer is now Rs 490 here. I can pay a bit extra and go to a 5 star Chinese restaurant.

“Good Chinese Food”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

Visited here many times..One of the best Chinese restaurants in town that never fails to deliver tasty food and service. Choice is very good too. One reliable place you can host your guests who like to east sri lankan chinese food.. Prices are bit on the higher side but we are sure to get value for money... Sometimes, you may have to reserve a table in advance or wait about 10-15 minutes to get a table in non smoking area.. its generally full...a popular colombo restaurant.. Prawns and Cuttle fish are our choice..
