A colonial period square with huge open space in the surroundings. Arcade mall on one side, a completely colonial style building with a few high end stores, was almost deserted on a Saturday. There were a few families in the independence square who were jogging, exercising, walking and kids were playing. Do visit if you have time, nothing spectacular !

This is arcade / mall is a complete waste of time. If you like shopping for big name fashion you might like it but you can do better at the airport. It would rate a 5 as a place to get out of the rain.
There are a lot better places to find something memorable

This old colonial building square is converted to a shopping and food outlets complex. A good place to hangout in the evenings.

We decided on a day of seeing the Malls and this was on the list. The building is an old asylum and is beautiful and detailed. Not many shops but found a bargain in the sales. There are food place at one end and toilets.

This place is a refurbished colonial building.
Nice place with several branded stores and restaurants.
Ideal location for photos and nice place to relax and enjoy your meal.
But some of the areas are seems to be neglected now on maintenance and maintenance should be improved in this place.
This expands in a large area and not much crowded.Very large parking area is available.
It is not a large type of mall with lot of people and busy atmosphere.There are limited number of stores with branded items.But have a good variety of food stalls & restaurants.
Overall nice place to relax and enjoy in the heart of Colombo.

I was looking for a mall but this isn't a mall. It has Burger King, cafes, Gallerie (duty free it seems), Body Shop. I was hoping to a pharmacy or some departmental store so don't go if that is what you're looking for.

Plus side... the building is stunning colonial building with white walls and wooden interiors. So beautiful! 😊

Ashiq & Basith led us straight to the t Lounge by Dilmah

Shop No.04 @ the Arcade is such a treat with Mr Fawaz who served us and because he also wanted us to try the Sri Lankan ginger "teh tarik"... he had one made complimentary for my wife :)
