Find out what International restaurants to try in Dehiwala-Mount Lavinia. Dehiwala-Mount Lavinia (Sinhalese: දෙහිවල-ගල්කිස්ස Dehiwala-Galkissa, Tamil: தெஹிவளை-கல்கிசை), population 245,974 (2012) is the second largest Municipality in Sri Lanka, and covers an extent of 2109 hectares. It lies south of the Colombo Municipal Council area and separated from it by the Dehiwala canal which forms the northern boundary of DMMC. Its southern limits lie in Borupana Road and the eastern boundary is Weras Ganga with its canal system and including some areas to its east (Pepiliyana, Gangodawila and Kohuwala). This town has extensive population and rapid industrialization and urbanization in recent years. It is home to Sri Lanka's National Zoological Gardens, which remains one of Asia's largest. Colombo South Teaching Hospital, Kalubowila and Colombo Airport, Ratmalana are some important landmark in this area. Dehiwela-Mount Lavinia and Sri Jayawardenapura Kotte being two large suburban centers of the city of Colombo function together as one large urban agglomeration in the Region (Western Province). The overspill from the City in residential and commercial uses of land have rapidly urbanised these suburban centers. Dehiwela-Mount Lavinia and Sri Jayawardenpaura along with Colombo Municipal Council form the most urbanized part of the core area of the Colombo Metropolitan Region. Dehiwala and Mount Lavinia lie along the Galle Road artery, which runs along the coast to the south of the country.

Came across this small restaurant which is located in the Street Rush Food Court, Mount Lavinia last week. Considering that this place is only small with limited facilities the food is of exceptionally high quality. I particularly recommend the Pan Seared Chicken Breast and the Fish and Chips. Both were delicious and very reasonably priced for what you get (about Rs.900/ each). It felt like a good quality restaurant had been brought into a food court.We were lucky to meet the owner on our visit. It wasn`t really surprising to learn that he`s a well qualified chef with experience of working in some top restaurants internationally, most recently in New Zealand.I highly recommend this place for the quality of the food and the friendliness of the staff who work there.

King of the Mambo has made a name for itself within the ever growing restaurant hub of Colombo. With its sultry Cuban music, sumptuous dishes and location right beside the Indian Ocean, the King of the Mambo simply has everything to offer for a great night out with family and friends. The staff are well trained as well.They also have one of the best ladies'nights in Colombo on a weekly basis with free cocktails for ladies and great deals on selected beverages. There's never a dull moment here, we love the vibe and often drop in for a lively night out.

We were not too impressed by the quality of food that was served, Though the host / manager was excellent. The food was served in record quick time and we were done in less than 70 minutes for a three course meal. A bit over rated.

A first of its kind in Sri Lanka, where healthy food meets scrumptious flavors and natural fresh goodness. With an array of delicious yet healthy items to choose from, the low calories do not compromise its flavors. Their menus include a variety of salads, mains, juices and even options for the sweet tooth. A must try for anyone visiting Sri Lanka, this is located in the heart of Colombo. So for all you foodies out there who wish to indulge in trying delicious dishes without having to worry about the extra calories or gaining the excess holiday weight, Calorie Counter is the place to go. A big thumbs up!

This is our second time here. This time we celebrated my father in-law’s birthday here and he was totally surprised. I should specially thank Ms.Aheni, who did an awesome job from reservation to setting up the birthday decorations/songs. Most importantly we were given total control over the boat to set up the surprise birthday party and we got support from Mr.Janaka and crew, they were very friendly and helpful, it just felt like home. Believe it or not, we were even given a place to hide our car. Everybody loved the food (yummy!), service, and overall experience. We truly had an amazing time. Should you visit this place? Ask yourself WHY NOT? :-)

The food at this restaurant is fantastic! We visited this restaurant on our first night in Sri Lanka and it did not disappoint - a favourite meal from our travels. There was only one other group in the small, but comfortable and casual restaurant, but that was no problem. We sat on the terrace and loved the vibe! The owner asked our spice preference, which we liked as my tolerance for spicy food isn't great. All dishes were prepared to our palette and tasted amazing! We had the fish curry, rice, vegetable curry and poppadoms. They threw in side dishes on top of all that which were also so, so tasty (coconut sambol and beetroot dish). All Sri Lankan and all, totally authentic - a great foodie experience. I don't believe they sold spirits but the wine was good. The meal and drinks were not expensive - good value for money. The owner chatted to us about our trip and where we were from - a nice, personal touch. Highly recommend this place - a real gem!
