“A normal place!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014

Well, if you are a native lankan and want to buy your household things then please visit this else for travellers there is nothing special in the place. Again in the center of the city so you can pass through it and peep from outside...

Nice place to visit and explore - the walk on the street is better though - little inventory, mostly heritage value

“Not the best shopping experience”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2013

Decent stock of vegetables and groceries but the place pretty much smells bad all the time. Staff clueless about what is available on what aisle. SInce they are present everywhere, it is a convenient place to shop, however.

“What a Building!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

Cargills is located in an old colonial building that is one of the most beautiful colonial buildings in Colombo. The store itself is rubbish but I heard the owners were going to convert the building into a fancy hotel. Lets hope they keep all the nice elements of it and incorporate them into the hotel. The exterior of the building is absolutely gorgeous and every time i go past it I stop and admite it.
