16Eating out in Sri Lanka

Dining out in Sri Lanka is safe and less challenging from a health point of view than many other tropical countries with a descent standard of hygiene and medical care.

Sri Lanka boasts a fascinatingly idiosyncratic culinary heritage, the result of a unique fusion of local produce with recipes and spices brought to the island over the centuries by Indians, Arabs, Malays, Portuguese, Dutch and English.

The staple dish is rice and curry, at its finest a miniature banquet whose contrasting flavours – coconut milk, chillies, curry leaves, cinnamon, garlic and “Maldive fish” (an intensely flavoured pinch of sun-dried tuna) – bear witness to Sri Lanka’s status as one of the original spice islands. There are plenty of other unique specialities to explore and enjoy – hoppers, string hoppers, kottu rotty, lamprais and pittu – as well as plentiful seafood.

Costs are most reasonable. You can get a filling rice and curry meal for only a few dollars at a local café, while main courses at most guesthouse restaurants usually cost around NZD 7–10, and even at the island’s poshest restaurants it’s usually possible to find main courses for under $NZD 20. Note that many places add a ten percent service charge to the bill, while more upmarket restaurants may add additional government taxes of varying amounts (usually 13–15 percent) on top of that.

  • What some of our happy clients have to say

    I had been advised in New Zealand that I needed 2 expensive bridges. When our family decided to make a trip to Sir Lanka a friend recommended Dr Mayura as he had been pleased with the work done on his teeth. Besides the professional and safe practices the added bonus for me was the quick non-invasive cosmetic work on my front teeth that my New Zealand dentist had never suggested! So, I had the bridges completed at an affordable price and am so much happier with my smile .   The service Dr Mayura and staff provide is wonderful – they fitted my appointments around our 10 day itinerary, even organising all transport to and from his clinic and then when I returned home checked to find out how my teeth were.

  • What some of our happy clients have to say

    I visited Sri Lanka in July 2017 and was keen to get a “troublesome tooth” checked while I was there. In NZ, I had been advised to get a root canal or extraction/crown/bridge, all of which was unaffordable. I had a friend who had some dental work done in Sri Lanka and referred me to see Dr Mayura. I trusted my friend, visited Dr Mayura and was pleasantly surprised and reassured about my “troublesome tooth”. I didn’t actually need expensive work done, I had a clean, scale and polish and left feeling very happy and satisfied. Dr Mayura was very professional, his staff were friendly and welcoming and the clinic is spotless. I felt very comfortable and will visit him again if I am in Sri Lanka in the future. I would recommend my friends and family to pay him a visit too.
