We visited for a late Sunday Lunch and were impressed with quality, presentation and decor of the restaurant. The Flamingo house is exquisitely designed with a relaxing ambience. We had excellent service by Sudheera and the food from a varied menu with something for everyone's taste was delightful. Highly recommended !

The atmosphere was alright. Food wasn't that great. Seating at the table was cramped although there was enough space in the dining room to accommodate more. Very expensive food.

We went to Flamingo House for an early dinner today and it was fab. We were promptly seated and handed menus; the staff were very attentive and provided exquisite service from the start. Sudheera looked after us and he was excellent, explaining the dishes we were looking at and asking about our trip around SL, really nice guy! We ordered... More

The cocktails are very fun. I do not think they serve cocktails at lunch though. The menu includes boneless chicken, which is harder to find in sri lanka.

Beautiful hidden place in Colombo to eat. The food is great, the service is good and the spirit is there. After dinner, go upstairs to Love bar to enjoy music and nice people. Thanks for the experience.

The Flamingo House reminds me of Helga's Folly in Kandy. A cool place to chill if you don't mind a bit of an eccentric decoration.
