Serendib has a good combination of Indian and Sri Lankan food. It's not too far from my place, so I often go there on a lazy night when I don't want to go too far or eat at home. The Butter Chicken Masala is amazing....More

This restaurant has a brilliant view and even better food. Different Asian options which are very tasty and authentic. Been there several times and it is always excellent. The pakora and the mgimbo prawns are my favorites. Brilliant view for sundowners too.

The best food I have eaten in a long time. The Sri Lankan food is even better than what you get in 5 star restaurants in Sri Lanka. Very good personal service .

My husband and I literally order the butter chicken masala together with a prawn dish, every weekend. What a winner! Beautiful view over Jabi lake.

Lovely Lakeside view, attentive staff. However, food quality not as great as in reviews. Situated at a sub-par 2 star hotel with small restaurant area. In summary it's good compared to local Nigerian restaurants not beyond.

My first ever Sri Lankan cuisine, and chef Alwis didn't disappoint at all. Try Kottu Roti - it's Yumm!!! Amazing Palak paneer too!!!

Serendib has become my regular goto restaurant in Abuja. The food is excellent and staff courteous and polite. Chef Alvis does a fabulous job, definitely recommend their daal and prawn curry although most items are great. Excellent value for money.
