“Nice shopping place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2014

Nice place to shop. We picked up some nice srilanka themed t-shirts and souveigniers from here. Located on the main road and a short walk from the lavinia beach.

“Fab shopping experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2014

Great shopping. Good price and lovely dining options for all budget classes. This is in the area called Town Hall which is very closer to the city center. You can couple Odel on your way to city center. It's generally full of foreigners.

“avoid”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014

given the fact that this is the only department store that srilanka has to offer i would understand why this place is recommended. but when you go there you will see that the clothes are of low quality but the prices are very very expensive . this place is a rip off

“Can just visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2014

The place looks nice and different...not like typical shopping mall....but prices are very expensive...considering prices at my country or even at other shopping destinations at srilanka...for the same stuff!!! If you got ample time..you can just make a visit as its quite famous in lanka...

“Great Shopping”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014

One Stop Shopping ...very convenient for gifts/ souvenirs etc...If you intend going here..take a Tuk Tuk( with a meter) - very inexpensive, as the parking facilities are scarce.
