Patronized the revamped CENTRAL restaurant at Shangri-La Colombo and was throughly impressed from the moment we walked in! The ambience, decoration, lighting was perfect. The staff at the entrance was extremely warm and welcoming. The variety and choices of food on offer catered to all requirements and pallets, from Japanese (Sushi & Sashimi), Indian, Chinese, Singaporean, Western a truly international buffet. Furthermore the fact that, Fazmeer Mohideen F&B Service Manager at the CENTRAL Restaurant went out of his way to satisfy my 5 year old son by getting him some French Fries & Prawn Dumplings (specially prepared from the Chinese Restaurant). This absolutely delighted us! Given that it was my also my birthday, they provided a complimentary cake & sang happy birthday! Every single employee at the restaurant was extremely professional in their customer service and made sure to leave a lasting impression on this memorable occasion. Well done, keep it up! Will definitely revisit and recommend everyone I know to try it out...!

Our Executive Suite was extremely spacious; a living room attached with a study, one bedroom, two bathrooms, & walk-in closet. The view from the bedroom and living room was Port City, Galle Face Green, & the deep blue ocean. As we were on the 25th floor, it almost felt as if we were watching down from the clouds🤣. After a tiring day, I took advantage of the bath salts and range of Spa Ceylon products to relax myself in the tub. During our stay, we ordered in-room dining. They had an extensive range of dishes (from steaks to healthy bowls) and beverages, made to suit you and your kids.  We also had their breakfast buffet which is simply one of the biggest spreads in Colombo. While we couldn't visit Chi spa, we did use the pool, the jacuzzi, & steam room. Their smartly designed pool area has many sunbeds and lounges with plenty of shade. You can order food and beverages up there too! I loved their vitality room the most! Hot water to relax your city fatigued muscles. Also, when you book an executive suite you get access to the Horizon Club benefits. Highlight of our staycation; the funky cocktails. Booze-heavy and yummy. Get their Whiskey Sour and Bloody Mary. You wouldn't regret it.

I really enjoyed the dinner in central restaurant. The food was excellent which can choose according to the preferences. I enjoyed japanese food with different kinds of sushi. And the staff was really friendly and helpful. Mr. Iresh who is a member of the staff did a good job with his services. Atmosphere was really refreshing to have a fine dinner.

We had a great time and really enjoyed the food very much. The ambiance was great. The steward who served our table named Sanjeewa at Shang Place, Shangri-La was amazing. Will be back with the family too.
