About a week ago, my partner and I visited PappaRich Nawala to have the 3-layer iced tea with gula melaka pearls. It was prepared beautifully well, end of story. Staff were super friendly and everyone was wearing masks. I was pleased to note that the...moment we finished our tea and walked back to our car, the server immediately sanitised our table. 10/10 affair. Today, we visited the Thalawathugoda outlet to have the same tea to go. We waited inside the restaurant whilst the tea was being prepared and were utterly dismayed to note THREE individuals inside the kitchen NOT wearing masks. This made me wonder, was the server also not wearing a mask the entire time and did he only wear one when he saw us walking up? Were the tables clean? How hygienic is the kitchen if there are three people in there not wearing masks?? We collected our tea and walked back to the car. To make an unpleasant matter worse, the tea was absolutely terrible. Really really bad. The “pearls” were just a disintegrated mush at the bottom of the cup. The texture was that of an expired fruit. The tea itself was incredibly bad. No masks and terrible food? 00/10. Never visiting this outlet again. P. S. If the management want pictures of the staff not wearing masks, reach out to me as I have photos.More

I visited PappaRich Colombo- Park St as I was dying to taste Malaysian flavours. But sadly it is not the authentic taste. I should use authentic this is not Malaysia obviously, but at least I expect the taste close to Malaysian flavours. I’m not sure...the reason is the COVID-19pandemic and staff changed ingredients changed. But the taste of food is really disappointing. If you are someone used to the real taste & truly love Malaysian food better avoid. I ordered a Char Kway Teow(Seafood) my god it turned to a bean spouts noodle. Noodle was not the same Malaysian use for Kway Teow, taste was so spoiled due to over taste of bean sprouts. 3 Jumbo prawns+ 1 ring of cuttlefish. Also I ordered the egg pudding with Sago, Trust me it is was so Motha packet pudding not the Malaysia egg pudding not worth for Rs500. Malaysian egg pudding is much more rich and use real eggs. Location is super good it is Parkland Complex, Park St. Staff is very friendly and good service. May be good for a coffee talk, but then again I don’t want to get any risk of the Malaysian snacks and coffee taste. I think I better avoid.More

It was a beautiful evening with good food, service was fast. Even though parking will be difficult. Overall this place is an above-average pace to eat.

Visited the Nawala outlet,but end up taking it away as none of the staff were wearing masks,except for the female staff who handed over the food. (No difference to most lankans on the streets taking it easy now adays). I do not wish to dine-in...if the atmosphere is UNSAFE.Is this is the way the chain practice HEALTH REGULATIONS ? Is it only the customers who has to adhere to health notices which are displayed at the premises?More
