One Seven One

171, Old Kottawa Road, Nawinna Maharagama

One Seven One is a well known restaurant in Maharagama for quality pastries, and rooftop dining.




Visited the place yesterday with a crowd of 10 since the ratings were good and heard nice things about the place. We had pre booked a table for 7-7.30pm. The very first thing they asked us were if we r ready to order quickly coz they need the table back by 9pm. I specifically inquired about this when i made the booking so i told him no we can’t leav by 9. They looked unhappy. Then we ordered our food n wen came to drinks section TOTAL DISAPPOINTMENT. They bluntly told us no drinks available other than EGB, coke n sprite. Nt even lime juice. What kinda place is that. We were totally down n to make ot worse d service was BAD. Starters either came with d main course or after. Waiter was handing over the food to my friend at the corner and asked her to pass d food “බෙදාගෙන මේක අරහෙට යවන්න." Really??? Table water was nt served untill i requested twice. No spoons for d dishes. We had to ask them more than 3 times to get some. Food was average I’d say, hot battered mushroom was too salty.
Plus points were good portions and low prizes. But we were kinda mislead too abt d portion sizes. I mean what they told 2 ppl can share, can easily be shared among 3+.
May be better for take away but not recommending for dine in with our experience.
