We saw the Red Lobster from the street and it stuck out a mile away as the sign is very big and red, something you cant miss. We tried both breakfast and lunch and weren't disappointing at the food or the service. As you enter upstairs you find yourself in a grafiti den with tons of writings on the walls... More

Great atmosphere, not expensive, but lobster (as it was mentioned in some previous comments) was a bit fishy. It should not be fishy! It means it was either overcooked or not fresh. And french fries was awful. All the rest was great

My daughter and I shared a seafood platter which was really good and included lobster. Best piña coladas I have ever had.

The Red Lobster was recommended to me by an ex colleague who returned to Sri Lanka several years ago. We had beers and ordered devilled crab and devilled prawns with white rice. I asked for them to hold... More
