The Sizzle gives diners a unique experience. Almost all items on their menu are served on sizzling hot plates, even the desserts!! The Sizzle is conveniently located in a quiet street in Central Colombo housed in an old converted house. It has many nooks and crannies and some rooms which affords diners all the privacy they need.

The restaurant serves Halal food and does not serve pork-based dishes or liquor. Their drinks menu features a good selection of mocktails and some milkshakes.

All the main meals come on sizzling platters and feature a wide choice including steak, mutton, lamb, chicken, seafood, fish and vegetarian. These platters are served with your choice of starch (french-fries, mashed potato, baked potato, potato wedges), carbs (rice, noodles, pasta) and sauces (pepper, garlic, tomato, hot chilli, asparagus, sweet and sour, ginger, oyster).

There is a separate menu for kids, several lunch time specials and even sizzling biriyanis. The main meal comes in a choice of small and regular. The regular portion is quite filling. If you are planning on having a starter and dessert, we recommend you selecting the small main meal. Most of the starters are also sizzler platters. In addition there are a few soups and seafood and other cocktails. The sizzling desserts are a real treat – there are cheesecakes, lemon meringue, brownies and a date crème brulee, just to name a few, all served with ice cream.

The Sizzle can seat 85 persons. The interior, whilst very comfortable and roomy has very drab decor. The service is quite good. All in all, a great place to go out with friends and family.

2. Please change our contact number to 0716 888 777 . This is our Sizzling Hotline for customers. The other number is a general office number.

I have always enjoyed the ambiance, the staff and their service and of course the food at the "SIZZLE" They are extra-ordinary and sometimes out of this world !!! When I visit the SIZZLE, I feel at-home, do not feel the passage of time, and often I am the first to come and last to leave - after a hearty meal !!!!!!
Good Luck the SIZZLE and keep it up !! See you all soon !!!!

Sizzle is one of the must-try restaurants in Colombo.

can you please mail me and let me know if all the meat is halal and where the meat is procured from.

I think the meat may not be halal because this popular restaurant, despite its claims to be halal, has not got the certification, even after 3 years of its existence, and they don't provide any information if you inquire about the source of the meat & ingredients. I stopped patronizing this place after I did not receive a reply to my inquiries about the same in 2009.

    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!!
