Colombo Restaurants

The Sri Lankan culinary expertise increases by the day, with traditional cooking blending into favourite international dishes. Local spices, the essence of Sri Lankan cooking, are artistically and cleverly added to the renowned dishes from worldwide destinations, presenting the gourmet palate with a new variety of taste. Needless to say, the European, Middle Eastern and South Indian influences of many centuries have affected the preparation styles and seasoning of the various local dishes. Colombo, as the commercial capital of Sri Lanka, offers the complete range of cuisines, from the spicy local and Indian curries to the raw and unflavoured Japanese sushi.

The dining options in Sri Lanka bring the unique tastes of the world in to one location, presenting both local and foreign travellers with an exquisite selection of restaurants located within a few miles of each other. The best of the restaurants are concentrated in Colombo, with some great selections available in the other major cities in Sri Lanka, including Kandy.
