Reasonable. Somewhat crowded on weekday lunches. Relatively good selection and variety. Cleanliness can improve. Recommended if you're looking for a srilankan home made type meal.

This old institution is worth a visit to see how grotty and basic travelers used to accept to stay. Not recommended to actually sleep there, in my view. But the restaurant downstairs, as messy and basic as it still is might be worth a look at. Prices are high considering what you get. Only plus we see is the location... More

Ok for a meal, in the Middle of the Town. They have many more other activities such as Indoor Sports etc, but I am afraid they are mostly used by Locals and Members (Like a Club). Pls call them for more details.

It is a Friendly organization.Friendly organization. The Institute a number of institutions that meet various social services. That is a fair price for the food they are important hotel service, a fair amount of tourists who stop or safe as facilities providing service.

In the hubbub of Pettah, the Colombo YMCA is a nice place to relax, let your tired feet have a rest and also have a great lunch. It has fairly reasonable rooms for young men and a variety of activities that you could enroll in such as martial arts and other sports.

Good for a quick lunch or a snack. Extremely good value for money. Clean for a budget eatery. Bit crowded during lunch. All the key government officers close by and good place to come by if you have to wait.
