I ate at a formal dinner here. WE ended up with extra people turning up and the restaurant was very helpful in fitting us in. The food was excellent although the service was a bit slow. There were several big parties on and I think the kitchen and waiting staff struggled a bit.

Don't come here if you are short of time, like we were. A small lunch takes about 1.5 hours as ordering the fish is a bit complicated: only one person takes the orders at the fish table. Otherwise the food was great and accepted credit card.

Great seafood at a, bit above average, prices. However the service, ambience and other contributory factors make it a great restaurant, recommendable for a great seafood meal.

Based on a friends recommendation, I flew to Colombo Sri Lanka (from the USA) to try out the giant Lagoon crabs with pepper sauce. Since the sign said 725/~g I ordered 2 of them. Total 2.23 kilos at 725 is 1616.75 or $10.89 USD. When we got the bill it showed the qty as 22.3 * 725 or 16,175.50 or... More

The Lagoon...the Sunday buffet is wonderful...the selection of seafood is incredible, the taste spicy Sri Lankan, the wine selection complements the meal, and the service impeccable. We highly recommend it🙏🏻

I was surprised to find such a quality restaurant in a Hotel.The seafood all fresh and able to be selected. The crab was outstanding - sweet and fresh, I asked for the crab to be cooked Singaporean chilli style - and it was the best I had eaten for many years. Staff friendly - service prompt - would definitely recommend.

Located at the heart of the business district (close to the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce, most reputed banks including the World Bank & Ministry of Commerce, Export Development Board & many blue chip corporates) with a choice of exits & entrances to major roads allows easy access during rush hour traffic. The first choice of many ardent Sea Food lovers.... More

An excellent restaurant located on the edge of a garden. You can choose your fish, select the cooking method and watch it happening. The food is well-prepared and fresh. Sadly the furniture is clunky, the seats are uncomfortable and it's a bit noisy

This was our fifth visit within the past two months and the quality of the food and taste is consistence. We started off with the appetites and by the time main entrees arrived we were full. Quality, taste and service very good and would highly recommend to patronize with confidence.

Overpriced, just a show not up to expectation. It has taste value only prestige value. Lobsters are extremely overpriced, cooking tasteless. Tao is better than this.
