Visited Rajabojun for lunch with friends. It was a big mistake. Though the buffet had a good spread, food was luke-warm to cold and lacked quality. Worst crab curry I have ever eaten. The service in the restaurant was very poor. After breaking the crab claws I asked for a finger-bawl and the waiter directed me to the toilet. After... More

We opted for the buffet..with intent to savor all. The stuffed roti kind of snack was very very very cold. The chicken biryani had... More

This is one of the few places in Colombo where you can eat authentic Sri Lankan food in reasonable comfort. Good value for money. Good location.

This restaurant serves traditional Sri Lankan Cuisine and has a branch in Melbourne. One of the owners is a chef and was seen extremely busy in the kitchen. The food is very authentic and tasty. Worth a visit.

We were a mixed group varied in age from 60 - 2.5 and everyone found something they liked to eat. I was impressed by the varied vegetarian dishes offered and the crab curry was superb.

A mixture of tourists and locals. Sri Lankan friends recommended this place as somewhere you can eat safely, the food being toned down for the tourist market. It was fine costs around £12 a head but nothing special, the dishes were lukewarm, beer expensive and overall it was an underwhelming experience. A safe bet for a bit to eat but... More

Our guide/driver brought us here claiming that we would have a delicious, typical Sri Lankan meal. But there were only tourists here. The buffet did have a lot of choices but the decor was very tacky. We had hoped to have a meal with local people and local decorations but this was very touristy. The cost was very reasonable: just... More
