Curry Pot Restaurant is a budget eatery based in Colombo 3 where you can taste traditional Sri Lankan food. The cafeteria is simple and always overcrowded with locals during lunchtime. It is a place where you can eat as much as you like for a very good price and leave as soon as you finish. Although the place was overcrowded, the staff managed to find us a table rather squeezed us to someone else’s table but as we were on a mission to eat and leave we didn’t mind to share a table with someone else and they didn’t mind us either.
They don’t have a menu but you can see all the dishes in clay pots laid out on the display at the counter. To ensure if any of those dishes were vegan, we asked the manager and he pointed out which dishes were vegan-friendly. And I must say there was quite a good selection. The food was tasty and bursting full of flavours.
If you are hungry and want to try traditional Sri Lankan food on a budget this is an easy place to recommend.
For the price what you get it’s definitely worth trying out.
