“Incredible food!!”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

As we were staying at the hotel, we are here quite a few times and each and every time over the 4 days that we were there, the food blew us away! The focus is definitely on quality, which is evident in each dish that is presented. There is a large menu as such, but there is something there for everyone - i'm quite a fussy eater and always had my next meal planned! I honestly can't praise the chef enough...I would LOVE to be able to cook like he does!! While it is a pricey in Sri Lankan terms, it is so worth it!!!
I must admit that we did eat 'out' for 2 meals while we were there, just to have something different but we were quick to realise that the food at Suwaya is exceptional. While they have a chef providing amazing meals, other places have a hired a person who is a good cook.

“Chef Ruwan provides outstanding fushion cuisine”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

The delicious food provided by chef Ruwan was by far the best we ever had in Sri Lanka. Every day we discussed with him the food we wanted to eat, which was in particular seafood (collected at the fish market each morning), and also Sri Lankan curries. The dishes were always delicious and outstanding in every aspect, gourmet would call it fushion cuisine. We ate entire fish with vegetables, mahi-mahi fillet, calamari rings, Sri Lankan rice and curry with an assortment of many different Sri Lankan vegetables which were new for us (e.g. drum sticks). Ruwan is the ideal chef for a gourmet restaurant.

“Limited but excellent choice”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

The menu has very few items, changing every night, but they are very sophisticated and really enjoyable. Great cuisine, comfortable environment and a reasonable price, as compared with the neighbourhood.
