“Sea view restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

The restaurant located at the lobby level in the Kingsbury Hotel Colombo offers a stunning view of the sea. It is a seafood speciality restaurant which also serves other cuisines. They have a open sitting area overlooking the sea or a airconditioned section from which you get to view the sea in the daytime.. They display a wide variety of seafood placed on ice and you can choose whatever you want which will then be freshly cooked. The service was efficient and friendly and they will help you in finalizing your order. They have a reasonably good collection of liquor on their menu. We started of with soup and starters in prawns and cuttle fis. Both starters were good. In the main course we had grilled fish and tiger prawns both of which were excellent. The prices are also very reasonable and the restaurant is not very crowded which ensures quick service.

“Super seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

Good seafood and value for money. The service too was excellent. The portions were not too large but the taste was great. Service is quick. Although I wish they had a wider selection of wines.

“Excellent Seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

Had dinner there recently. Very good selection of seafood. Testily prepared. Staff is vey friendly. Service is very good. A selected Japanese items are also available on the menu.

Though bit pricy since its a upmarket restaurant can say reasonable. Low back chairs are not so comfortable. They need to be replaced with some high back ones.

If you haven't been there, good to try this restaurent. A good alternative to Lagoon at cinnamon grand.
