Had the mushroom curry and asked for spicy which quite hot, glad I didn't go for the Sri Lankan Spicy option. Service was exceptional with the owner coming to round the restaurant to say hi to everyone. Dessert was fantastic and all dishes were presented surperbly.

We were looking for a good restaurant in Negombo and we decided to go for the #1 TripAdvisor. The menu has a very little choice of fish (basically only butter fish, prawns, crab and lobster) most of which is fried, not grilled. We ordered a potato and celery salad, which had excessive mayonnaise and raisins. Definitely not the best restaurant... More

We dined here on a Sunday evening. Arrived at 6.30pm with a reservation. By 7.30 the place was nearly full. Good atmosphere, modern art and coloured lighting, live music from just after 7. The waiters are attentive, and helpful. The way the Sri Lankan curry is served (in a coconut shell) is inventive too. We thank Martin and his staff... More

I came to Lords several times during my stay in Negombo. Very nice with a decent menu. There are fish swimming next to you in the floor in some areas. They also have a good deal on coctails.

Excellent food and excellent service. Martin, the owner, seems very nice and a bit of a character, and really does appear make a point of stopping by every table. We had very tasty prawn and coconut curry and a cashew curry. Yum. The decor is perhaps a little colourful, and we could see why some might find it a little... More
