We visited this restaurant on arrival in Negombo as it was a walking distance from our hotel. It has beautiful location but sadly that's the only positive . The staff are so sullen and angry looking and to make matters worse the food arrived cold. I'd never recommend this place nor would I revisit . A bad end to our... More

Situated on the beach in Negombo this is a fairly big and noisy restaurant. When I visited there was a large Chinese group there who filled up nearly half of the restaurant. Nevertheless , the seafood is real good and they also have some real spicy and tasty dishes. And it is of course nice to have dinner on the... More

Self attended with my family to this restaurant & had experienced the worst ever service in restaurant industry I had ever been. I'm a sea food lover. Had a good welcome from the security guards, but thereafter the services was so unprofessional. After ordering the food had stayed for about 1/2hr n when inquired from the steward (name - UDAYA)...

7 of us recently went to this restaurant for dinner. Decor and surrounds were very nicely decorated for xmas but unfortunately we were very disappointed with the quality of the food and also not to be able to be able to order any rice and curry . I would look else where if you want to experience true Sri Lankan... More

They have a huge selection of food specially sea food, I recommend any one who love to have a quality sea food meal near by the Negombo beach to this place.

I recently had dinner at King Coconut in Negombo. This is a very good family friendly restaurant right on the beach. It is quite a large restaurant with a very friendly feel. The food was excellent and the customer service was very good. It was quite busy when we visited, but we didn't have to wait too long for our... More

Where do you start? Seemed nice enough walking in, nice welcome & shown to a table straight away. That's the good bit - now for the not so good bits.... Waiter gave the impression that he really didn't want to be there and but he did manage to inform us that the Sri Lankan curries were for lunchtimes only -... More

All I can say is that this place was awful. The service was poor and our waiter was really not wanting to be there!! We ordered a curry and we're told they only serve curry at lunch time. This was not on our mentioned on the menu. We had breaded fish which was not too bad but the chips were... More

you come to a place called the king coconut and you expect them to have some really exquisite Sri Lankan inspired dishes.....far from the truth.....uninspired and lacklustre menu. Rubbish, unprofessional staff who can't even take an order properly. Delivered only half the food right and the other half that's delivered is delivered cold. I ordered the chicken schnitzel and it... More
