Nelum Kole Restaurant - To begin the day we started off at Nelum Kole Restaurant, a Sri Lankan food restaurant serving a massive buffet of different Sri Lankan food dishes. Overall, the food was good, but not the best Sri Lankan food I had. Flavors tasted too similar to each other. It is a good place to taste variety though.
Dilmah Tea Lounge - After lunch we headed to a Dilmah Tea Lounge and drank a few teas all of which were very good.
Ministry of Crab - Rated as one of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants, Ministry of Crab is one of the most iconic restaurant serving seafood and especially Sri Lankan crabs in Colombo. It’s a high end restaurant, with prices that go with it, but I do have to admit that it was extremely tasty. The river shrimp, the black pepper crab was delicious. Price - about 30,000 LKR ($165.53) per OMG crab - I think it’s overpriced - but it is good.

160 usd that is too dear Im pretty sure if you walk in to a local fish market you could get plenty of seafood for half of that price and its fresh too anyways I think it covers the wages of the staff and the rental of the building etc.. but its good for a change since it is one of the best restaurants in Asia.

Does everyone in the comments understand that he completed this food tour with a food tourist group? Yes, the dining was expensive however they paid for the setting with the group! Food looked amazing to me Mark! I understand that sometimes you pay more for experience.
ricecakejohnson 2 months ago
$165 just for ONE crab? or is it $165 per person(for the whole meal)?? If its only for one crab, then that is def wayyyy too expensive. I dont think I would pay that even if they were the top 3 most tasty restaurant in the world.
