3 Restaurants in Colombo

Galadari Shehrazad Restaurant

I’ve been to this restaurant a few many times but this was the first time i visited as a food blogger. Earlier i went to enjoy the food but now i went to blog about it Of course it was a dinner by invitation from a family member.
I couldn’t take much photos but still managed to get my plates. There salad table was super awesome and attractive. They had a soup section, a shawarma stand and a dessert section with the main course.
The seafood pasta and the morocxon lamb was a hit on my plate. They tasted delicious and it’s a must try when ypu visit.

Eastern Wok

Ever since i herd it’s food was of good quality I’ve been wanting to go but time didnt permit with loads of visiting to do after the wedding and some resting. I was craving for chinese and badly wanted to go for one before leaving sri lanka.

Suddenly a relative called up and invited for dinner and when they mentioned Eastern Wok was the location i was so happy and looked forward to visit.  I’ve been to sizzles but never tried eastern wok.

As i entered we were served a 3 course meal which was filling and satisfying.

They had fish, cuttlefish and prawns for mains while a chicken sweet corn soup was a starter  everyone said the biscuit pudding was a hit and i did like it too.

Overall craving for chinese in colombo?

You know eatern wok is the place to be.

Channas

I heard many good reviews about channas. Now if someone says a restaurant has good food at an affordable price i always think of a way to try it out.

I had a dinner out that day but decided to order in some food from channas before i left to dubai the next day. So i ordered naans, tandoori chicken,  paneer butter masala with kulfi for dessert.

The order arrived on time and the food was sent in excellent condition.

The tandoori chicken was a bit too small but taste was good. The naan was too big a worth the price. A naan is sufficient for 2 people.  The kulfi was the hit. It was sent in the exact same way they serve for dine-in customers, in that small clay pot neatly wrapped in a foil and it was frozen and cool amidst half an hour of it’s travel from wellawatte to colombo9.

I came home after my dinner and tried all the food though i was full and tasted the kulfi which melted in my mouth.  It’s was the best and original kulfi. Ive tried kulfi ice cream but I’ve never tried the actual kulfi.

This was so delicious.

There kulfis are a mist try and yes the naan too.

Sizzle over T20 Cricket

Oh wow that proud moment when sri lanka won the T20 world cup last night.  I have stayed away from watching cricket from start to end since I got married and was always concerned to find out who won.
That was it and last night was the same scenario until the sizzling food in front of me called for some entertainment and non was more suitable than watching T20 world cup. Sri lankans playing their way all over in Bangladesh and the excitement I got after every 6’s and fours made me go back to my spinster days when I used to watch the cricket from start to end praying sri lanka should win.
Todays match was sure an unforgettable one for me and for the two retiring cricket legends of sri lanka sanga and mahela.
Amidst this good cricket I managed to get a few videos of my sizzling food and drink which I really enjoyed sharing on Instagram.

The smoking lemon juice with the dancing slice of lime cheering the cricket on screen was fun. It was so bubbly and I managed to get hold of that ice cube which was making the juice smoke and boil and finally ended up placing it under the straw so the straw choke and splashed lime juice all over the table. Thats a nice fun game if it was not just lime juice I’d repeat it.

The hot sizzling main course I chose seafood and my choice was the best. It was easy to eat, delicious and filling. I find the chicken dish a bit hard.

The nutty brownie with an ice cream hat which lay around boiling caramel which was really hot and bubbly.
I tried to spoon all three into my mouth and burnt my tongue.  I still feel the pain of eating hot food yet I love food while its a bit warm not boiling hot.

Do visit my Instagram page to watch the video as am not able to upload the videos here. Soon I will upgrade my account until then enjoy my pictures.
I think the food at sizzles is too expensive although the portion is filling and the experience is unique which is fine to dine at the sizzle once but not twice. They do add extra charges for vat, tax and service charges which I believe most restaurants include in the price list of the food and are often hidden on the bill which makes the bill reasonable.
All in all the sizzle is something you should visit on rainy days and during winter but good only for visit once not twice I wouldn’t like to go back. Food is good but expensive as we can go for buffet at kingsburry for that cost. Going there with kids get a stroller or pram and some toys to keep babies entertained.
Kids above two can color which they provide paper and colors at the restaurant and they display the work at the front notice board.
Check their menu online at the sizzle srilanka so you can plan ahead.
They do have takeaway and delivery.
