This is a very good local handicraft shop opposite the Race course. They have a very good selection of local crafts to take back home. Parking available.

Fantastic souvenir shop
Nov. 2019 • Couples
Huge product range at a very fair price (other than eg. Laksura) + friendly / non-pushy staff. Would definitely come back when looking for souvenirs and little gifts.

Great place to get presents
Dec. 2018 • Couples
We thought this was going to be a tourist trap but we were wonderfully surprised by the items we found here and the prices were more than accessible. We were only going to buy a little thing and we ended up buying loads of things!

Wide variety of handicrafts,
Dec. 2017
You can find a wide variety of handicrafts, but prices are pretty high. I would prefer to go to Laksala.

If visiting Lakpahana is not in your plan, please do make it. Such lovely decorate you can get for home. It is better than Barefoot and Paradise. Also cheaper. The collection at Paradise is majorly for cookery,while Lakpahana has everything .

I visited this place twice to pick up some lovely artefacts. The female staff were very helpful and did not put me under pressure to buy anything. Genuine Sri Lankan products and reassured you are buying quality products.

Lovely House Now A Showcase of Good Market
Jun. 2018
From the look outside, the place looks like an old house, with some characters. Once entered, greeted by the Good Market signage, of which to showcase the place carries the local handicrafts. Good selections, and reasonable prices.

Perfect place for gifts and souvenirs
Dec. 2017 • Friends
The perfect place to stop at for gifts and quality handicraft souvenirs to take home. There’s a little bit of everything ranging from jewelry, ceramics, wood works, laquer, fabrics, silver, and all types of art and handicrafts. Very reasonably priced. Friendly staff. They wrap everything well to take on the plane. Very enjoyable shop.

Great place to buy Sri Lankan Handicrafts.
Oct. 2017 • Family
Visited with family to get some gifts for few friends overseas. Very reasonable prices and has a huge range of products. Each category or products from the same raw materials has a separate display. For ex. All leather products are in one location. A great place to get gifts as well as souvenirs from Sri Lanka.

Excellent selection and courteous service
Dec. 2016 • Family
Lakpahana has a great range of genuine Sri Lankan products at reasonable prices. The staff were very courteous and patient with us browsing through. Service and check out was prompt. Credit card and cash payments are processed separately. There is an organic cafe and produce as well as wellness centres in the same compound.
