Eat

Sri Lankan cuisine is exotic and heady with spices. Deliciously fiery, the dishes on offer are a melting pot of the country’s past cultural influences, from Indian, Malay and Arab to Portuguese English and Dutch. The curries are similar to Thai, rich with coconut milk though often spicier. Fresh fish and seafood naturally plays a big part in the local diet—and a great choice if you're not a fan of spice.
