Have an exquisite dining experience on-board an old train carriage, complete with motion and sound simulations, traveling around the colonial era of Sri Lanka. Complements to Chef Shammu on a great meal selection to choose from to complete an 8-course meal (including taster dishes). Experience...More

Compared to some other tasting menu experiences this isn't the best but it makes a nice change to the buffets offered at many places with some good quality ingredients. The 'train manager' is a fantastic character and does his best to ensure all customers have...More

From the moment you are whistled on board by the 'captain', you are sure to have a memorable evening. The 'captain' even rocks the train carriage to imitate the movement of a train from time to time! Service was faultless and the five or six...More

Great idea to use an old tea factory. Sympathetically and tastefully in style and with good materials. Rooms, on their own admission, are pokey. Justified on the grounds of not altering the structure. Your call whether that cuts it for you. Pastiche factory motor is...More

Food could be from a supermarket, at best. Soup from a pack, asked for meat medium-rare but it came very overcooked. Whiskey cocktail sauce with the bread from a bottle etc.. Skip this experience!

This is magical. The waiter welcomes you on board by blowing a whistle and waving a green flag. The carriage is quaint, practical and well designed. There can be a maximum of four guests per table but, with only 16 guests in total, you must...More

This was one of the most amazing dinner I had in Sri Lanka. Railway carriage with a unique serving experience. Rich menu and nice sound effects while having dinner. It has to be booked earlier as it has only 4 tables.
