Fodor's Review

One of Sri Lanka's very best restaurants, this open-air courtyard eatery occupies a historic building that was once the office of the nation's most famous architect, Geoffrey Bawa, and is now an art gallery. The decor is truly stunning, and the food—Asian fusion, blending Sri Lankan and European influences—more than matches it. All of the cooking uses fresh local ingredients in an inventive, flavorsome way. One signature dish is black pork curry, and the restaurant is also renowned for its great desserts. Located in a high-class area full of foreign embassies, the restaurant doesn't have a formal dress code, but T-shirts and shorts are a definite no-no.
