Part of the Hilton hotel. Great selection of local dishes, and very tasty. This is still one of the best tasting Sri Lankan food i have had in colombo. Great selection of seafood, and very good service to top it off.

Service is pretty bad as the bearers don't care and with grin face all the time! Food is very average for the money you pay! The name is misleading !

The worst buffet I have ever eaten in!! The food in this restaurant is so below 5 star standard its shocking! My family and I thought that since the Curry Leaf was highly praised about, it would be a delight and an experience, however it was nothing of the sort! The price of the buffet which includes the ridiculous amount... More

Friendly staff. The local entertainment. I suggest that they stay in one place to entertain rather than going from table to table... More

On my first night in Colombo, I was tired and desperate to try local cuisine in a comfortable setting. Curry Leaf was a great find. As I am allergic to crustaceans, I opted for the non-crustacean option. That was already a plus point as most places do not have that distinction and charge the same regardless. Loved the hopper and... More

This used to be one of my favourite restaurants but no more, not after today's experience! I ordered a variety of sea food only to be served some very chewy and cold cuttlefish within a few minutes of the order, clearly an old order and something that had been sat there for a while. When questioned, they took it away... More
