The pastry shop in Galle road is very nice and posh, but the service is chaotic, and the pastries look good but are stale (can never get a fresh, soft doughnut) or congeal in your mouth. They do have a very nice 'Tea Butter cake' which is a Pound cake, but for some unbeknown reason they make very few of them and it's very hard to get hold of one. and for such a pretentious place, to be served machine made 'nescafe' was a massive let-down.

Had pastries and the iced coffee. Absolutely fabulous. The mutton pastry was out of this world. Besides pastries, they have a nice collection of cakes, sweets and drinks. You csn also have their lumpris. Fabulous place to eat. Prices are high.

This is a well-known place to almost all the people in Sri Lanka because of their chain of outlets. But now the quality of food and service have dropped and also it differs from outlet to outlet. There are some good products which I really enjoy still(chocolate fudge cake) but some cakes are very dry and not up to the taste. But still FAB bales to maintain there customer base constantly.Whenever we visit an outlet of FAB it is crowded. That's because of their goodwill which they have gain in past. Only recommended for a quick snack .

Fab WAS a famous stop during many years and I always enjoyed their Cakes and even savory products. Last Friday (13/09/2013) I visited the Nugegoda Fab, and I found one of the service personalities (Someone above 40 years | Aprox) was busy with cleaning his nose. He continued it for more than 2 – 3 mins and it was totally disgusting. And one guy was observing a female top to bottom who was seated and I spoke to him twice to place my order, but he didn’t hear.
It is high time to teach them the basics of service !!!
