The Prima Taste Restaurant is a franchised operation with headquarters in Singapore. They operate restaurants in 10 countries at present, most of which are located in Asia. They serve Singaporean cuisine exclusively. The Sri Lankan operation is conveniently located with ample parking on the main road leading to the Parliament complex about 10 minutes from the City of Colombo.  

The restaurant is very spacious and can accommodate about 115 people. The service is good and the food is superb. Two of their chefs have been trained in Singapore. All the sauces used are supplied by their principles in Singapore. Laksa with Chicken or Prawns, Singapore Chilli Crab, Black Pepper Crab and Seafood Char Kway Teow are among the favourites of patrons. The menu is very extensive and features all meats, vegetarian selections, a variety of noodles and rice-based dishes, wok fried preparations and separate soup and appetizer menus.   

Prima Taste serves wine and beer and allows patrons to bring in their own hard liquor at no extra cost. The selection of wines is not that great with a bottle costing around USD 20 and above.  

This restaurant is definitely worth a visit especially for those who are looking for a slightly different tasting experience from the numerous Chinese restaurants in Colombo.

whilst the food does give a certain differnace to the usual Chinese, thai cuisines the portions are rather small and thus becomes relatively pricy. other than that great palce.

    Eating Out

    We love our food, we love to cook and we eat out a lot. We have travelled a great deal (at last count more than 50 countries) and we always indulge in eating out very frequently when we are on the road.  

    This page is our (my wife and myself) effort to give you the benefit of our opinion of as many Eating Out locations in Sri Lanka as possible. We have eaten at least 2 times in each of the restaraunts reviewed.
    We have rated all locations on Quality of Food, Service and Ambience. Each location has also been given an Overall Rating. A scale of 1 to 5 has been used, 1 being poor and 5 being excellent.  
    Pricing estimates are based on each person having 2 courses (out of starter, main meal and dessert) as well as a soft drink. Liquor and coffee prices are excluded. Pricing is categorised as follows:
    Inexpensive: Up to $12 p.p.Moderate: $12 to $25 p.p.Expensive: $25 to $35 p.p.
    Very Expensive:  Above $35 p.p.

    The above does not include taxes (12% at present) and service charges (usually 10%).
    Please do not hesitate to let us know what you think by clicking on comments.

    Happy Eating!!
