Something special for every taste

Culinary & Kitchen

Sri Lankan cuisine is anything but boring. That’s why you can expect a different facet of a great, diverse country at any time of the day. However, taste and quality are always the constant.

More than Curry and Dhal

The cuisine of Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is an island nation in the middle of the Indian Ocean. The kitchen is related to Indian cuisine, but differs in essential details. It consists of more than just curry and dhal and is diverse and colorful, rich in vegetables and spices.

“In Indian cuisine, a lot is cooked with butter lard and whipped cream and a lot of spice. We cook with coconut milk and fewer spices, so the Sri Lankan food is very light.”

By renouncing animal products in a variety of dishes, Sri Lankan cuisine, unlike many other kitchens, is already largely vegan by nature.

Something special for every taste

Colorful & diverse

Under the motto “Something special for every taste” we have been serving our specialities for many years. The impressive thing about the dishes is the incomparable variety of tastes, which is achieved by lovingly tuning the individual ingredients. Our dishes – meat and fish dishes as well as vegetarian and vegan delights – are made up of many different delicious ingredients and therefore have their unique exotic aroma.

The typical peculiarity of the delicacies, which comes from the traditional recipes, also meets the European taste. Dishes from Sri Lanka are in principle mild and aromatic, but are prepared (very!) sharply on request.
