The ‘rukada’ figures have been handcrafted by traditional puppet artists with remarkable attention to detail.
Big Bite in Mount Lavinia is one of the few places where you can get yourself a proper Pakistani biriyani. It's spicier than most, but it's still damn good, specially coupled with their barbequed chicken.
There's a lovely new aquarium at Diyatha Uyana, the site of the Good Market, near Water's Edge. Each tank is run by a different fish store. It's not Sea World, but it's still a worthwhile stroll in a circle.
Meh. If you want not-fast fast food, Dinemore (which also has a branch on Marine Drive) is a more reliable option. While Redberry's has a good location, the food is mediocre.
The Savoy Restaurant is a pretty good dodgy bar, situated just above the Savoy Cinema. It's a big space and in a relatively non-dodgy neighborhood, but with the same dodgy bar drink and food prices.
La Trattoria is an Italian restaurant in Battaramulla replacing Coco Citrine. It's very expensive, but the food is decent.
Hustler's Paintball is a bit out there but it offers a great paintball experience with expert guidance, good gear and a built in river bath afterwards.
Yue Chuan is a fine dining Chinese restaurant located at the Kingsbury hotel. The food is good, but not excellent.
Saraii Village is a charming set of tree-houses and mud chalets near Hambantota. They also make an excellent rice and curry. Probably the best place to stay in the area.
Tsing Tao is a fine dinning Chinese restaurant that strikes a good a balance between authentic and Sri Lankanized Chinese, in a chic and elegant setting.
Java Lounge is a nice little coffee shop attached to Cotton Collection on Dharmapala Mawatha. It's not cheap (no coffee shop is) but it's roomy, has parking and they take care with their drinks.
JU Caterers is an awesome rice & curry place - they combine tasteful ambience with bath kade prices.
Red Fort Restaurant is a small North Indian Restaurant on a small side road just off Baseline Road. The restaurant looks like an old abandoned house with wild grass and a kid’s playground at the front. The place is quite small but the service here is good and all in all, it’s a quaint, comfy place to have a meal.
