We stumbled across this place whilst in Colombo for the day. The staff were so friendly and the food was delicious (My boyfriend and I both had Mongolian Chicken Rice). Prices were really cheap. A great place to swing by if you're in the city!

The place is clean but extremely hot and humid due to no A/c. The food is too oily and are not value for money. Taste is OK but portions are small.

This has been here ages and the pastries are very good. We just had short eats but you can get good rice and curry etc. Prices reasonable and service excellent. My wife said her cup of tea was superb.

Great tea, service and atmosphere. Cool and spacious. Mongolian rice is very tasty and way better than it sounds. No tourists, locals going about their business. Nice cakes and pastries- some sponges look like they are right out of the cook books of the British...More
