Owner description: Paradise Road on Dharmapala Mawatha was opened in 1994 and today stands as the flagship store of the brand. Housed in an old mansion the store sells locally produced home ware, local handicrafts, antiques, clothing, giftware, crockery and more. Frequented by locals and tourists alike, the choice of products on offer are up-to-date with international quality and design while maintaining the timelessness and local aesthetic that has become synonymous with the brand.

“Beautiful but over priced ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014 via mobile

Beautiful shop with many things to offer, but they keep getting more expensive and now general items are triple the cost anywhere else... Soon it will be another boutique shop in Colombo, it's a shame cause I adore the shop and always advise people to go there if they don't have time but if they do, you can find all these items in other shops for almost half the price and the same exact quality.

“Stylish home furnishing store with nik knacks also”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014 via mobile

A nice shop with a variety of household niknacks. Lots of homeware and soft furnishings. Even if youve not got the room to take large items home its still worth a visit.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2014

Paradise Road Galleries and restaurant is a shopping and design delight. Beautiful gifts, artworks and food. Housed in the world famous architects Geoffrey Bawa offices a truly inspirational and unique building....an oasis in the middle of the hustle and bustle that is Colombo.
