Was here for an afternoon affair with my favorite cold brew, needed... More

Nice scenery and possibly nice food depending on the timing. I normally go for their Sunday buffet but better to go early afternoon anything afterwards is dissapointing because the food is cold and unappealing

Serendib has become my favorite restaurant for the reason of excellent quality of food. The mix of spice that creates test.......mouth watering. Evening and morning hours it is pleasure to sit outside in balcony/terrace, which gives excellent view to lake. Staff is courteous. Kitchen is see through that gives full view of their clean kitchen.
