A Sri Lankan restaurant serving dishes drawn from the staff’s family recipes.
Harden's survey result
“Knock-out Sri Lankan small plates” at this Soho three-year-old deliver “bright and fiery dishes”. There are “amazing veggie options”, and it’s “well-priced and authentic”.
“Interesting” and “reasonably priced” Sri Lankan dishes are presented by “friendly and knowledgeable waiting staff” at this Soho two-year-old just off Regent Street – part of the new wave of Sri Lankan restaurants following in the footsteps of the Sethi family’s pioneering Hoppers. Naturally, there are “egg hoppers to die for”, plus a “good range of vegetarian options” and a “nice array of Sri Lankan drinks”. Kolamba is Sinhalese for Colombo.
For 32 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
