On my first night in Colombo, I was tired and desperate to try local cuisine in a comfortable setting. Curry Leaf was a great find. As I am allergic to crustaceans, I opted for the non-crustacean option. That was already a plus point as most places do not have that distinction and charge the same regardless. Loved the hopper and... More

This used to be one of my favourite restaurants but no more, not after today's experience! I ordered a variety of sea food only to be served some very chewy and cold cuttlefish within a few minutes of the order, clearly an old order and something that had been sat there for a while. When questioned, they took it away... More

What I loved the most about Curry Leaf was the choice, refinement and attention to detail in the vegetable curries cooked from scratch. Ambarella curry, pumpkin with mustard curry, Dahl with spinach, okra/lady fingers tempered and cashew and green pea curry. Dedicated cooking stations for seafood (fish and small prawns) cooked however you wished as well as hoppers, kottu and... More

The staff were very helpful with our order and explaining the process. Fish and seafood prepared to our liking was delicious. Full range of buffet foods and on-demand roti and hoppers, plus a hot cooked desert bar.
