“How Sen sal treat their neighbours”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

It is appalling see how Sen Sal treats their neighbors. We the residents of 9th Lane, have to live by a restaurant which does not care about neighbors at all by draining waste water to the street and sometime in the night you could smell stench of the food waste from houses away. It is also appalling to see that Restaurant has allowed to park in front of the restaurant blocking pedestrians who have to walk on the street putting themselves in danger of running over.

Sen Sal has rented a house on the 9th lane for their workers and they live in squalor and house grounds has become breeding ground for Dengi mosquitoes and bad smell emanates and they have to be told to clean.

For any business social consciousness towards your community must be of paramount importance and anyone could wonder food hygiene is maintained at Sen Sal looking at how they treat their waste water and how they maintained their worker quarters.

“The Brand New Sen Saal Outlet on Union Place is Very Good!”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

Sen Saal is known for its good Sri Lankan and other Asian meals. It also has a wide range of western dishes. It has opened a brand new outlet in Union Place. It has main meals upstairs, and bakery and salads downstairs. We had a stringhopper meal there last night, which was very good, followed by butter cake and coffee. They were selling heart shaped love cakes at the counter, and we couldn't resist taking one home. Excellent stuff!. They are still sorting out their systems and processes, but they are trying their best. Look forward to going back.

“Cheap and Relatively good take away food”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

Ideal takeaway food. Whether it is set menu Chinese food or indian food. Short eats and bread are amazing. It is not bad restaurant if you want sit and have food but it can be bit loud specially because of all the people waiting to buy take away. But can enjoy food while watching tv. Service is ok, rather no complains.
I saw some comments that some people got sick after eating from here. I have had food from sen saal more than 10 times in the last 3 months alone and I have never had any problems.
