“A very small shopping centre”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2012

I do not think Colombo has a good shopping centre. Crescat is supposed to be one of the better shopping centres but it is a small shopping centre by Malaysian standards. Limited variety of goods; quite unfashionable clothes & shoes shops; several tea and gem shops (of course as this is Sri Lanka); food court (which did not attact me to try). The small supermarket was useful for some basic stuff. There is a cheap internet shop with several pc's - useful because wifi/internet is not free in Cinnamon Grand Hotel next door.

Shopping is a bit expensive - but the food court has a good variety

“Convenient Location”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2012

Just around the corner from the Galle Face Hotel. This shopping centre is by far one of the better ones around. The food in the food court looked rather unappetizing.

“Mall food court offers budget alternative to hotels”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2012

The Crescat Boulevard runs between the Cinnamon Grande Hotel and Galle Face Road. In the basement, along with a supermarket, is a well serviced mall food court, with a large range of fast food and Sri Lankan food outlets. When I visited there were a lot of people eating, and the place appeared very popular, particularly with locals, and people not wanting to spend megadollars in the Cinnamon Grande restaurants. Some of the food in the various outlet hot food cabinets and bain-maries looked a little dubious though, and I did wonder how long it had been sitting. I would recommend frequenting the most popular eateries.
