Went here for the Buffet Dinner with my family. The spread and the food was fantastic! Many choices and the salads were amazing. The waiters are kind and the atmosphere is cozy and nice with a live band singing. Enjoyed the food and GREAT value for money.

Out of our entire trip to Sri Lanka, the stay in Galadari was the least pleasant. The hotel is very old, with old furniture and not quite clean rooms. Overpriced buffet dinner, but good deserts. There was a persistent smell at the pool area.The hotel has a view to the Indian Ocean and the old Parliament House. It was easy...
