The food lives up to the hype. Great portion sizes. The shared platters are excellent and the fish and chips to die for! We were here for my dad's bday and the staff walked in with the cake we brought candles and all and sang 'happy bday Thaththi! ' which was quite a hoot and had everyone in stitches :) service response time can be better though as we were left unattended on a few occasions and the food took abt 45mins to arrive. But good otherwise.

The food at Manhattan Fish Market is fantastic - the moment you step in you can smell how good it's going to be. Surprisingly it also had a few vegetarian options, which tasted very good. Portion sizes are ideal. Our meals arrived in a timely manner.

Although the staff are enthusiastic and hardworking, I feel that some of them have a fair bit of attitude which we were unfortunate enough to receive. It was unfortunate that such a fantastic experience was marred by one staff member.

Visited for dinner and from the time we entered through the door, had the best experience in all of Colombo. As we entered we were greeted by the staff and was taken upstairs as it was full downstairs. The staff who served us, ran through the menu and suggested to try out the Feeesh n Cheeese, and also we ordered the lobster platter and for drinks I ordered the Citrus Mint. Staff were really friendly. The food and the drinks were all served within 20 mins and that is with the restaurant full. The food was amazing and out of this world and the price is worth the food, I have visited the same chain in Singapore, and to say the food here is a lot tastier than in Singapore.
Overall the staff and the service was excellent. Feeesh n Cheeese is a must try along with Citrus mint, and the ambience and the decor is great.
Manhattan Fish Market Sri Lanka is not something you find in every corner of the town, and I would say that this is a must try restaurant in Colombo.
I would definitely return for more.

The Manhattan Fish Market is a specialized sea food restaurant with variety of serving style: poached, grilled, baked, flamed etc. This is a fun experience and a change from regular Sri Lankan cuisine. The price is little on the premium side but the overall experience, ambiance, food will make it worth. The platters are attractive and foods are mouth-watering. Cozy, funny, happy, smiley settings and staffs makes it a Fin-Tastic experience in Manhattan way!
