All-day dining and café

Central, Shangri-La’s vibrant all-day dining restaurant and café is the newest addition to Colombo’s dining scene. A global gastronomic journey awaits as your tastebuds travel across India, Japan, Southeast Asia, and the West, whilst also celebrating Sri Lanka’s tapestry of native cuisine.

Each food terminal with its dynamic show kitchen represents a stop-over on this culinary destination tour that is well-worth navigating. Staying closer to home, guests can enjoy delightful Asian dishes bolstered with robust flavours from North India, a delicious medley of Southeast Asian food and exquisite delights from the Japanese hot and cold counters. Central’s Western terminal includes a classic butcher’s board presenting prime cuts of meat, whilst the Italian section features home-style pasta and pizza. Local treasures showing devotion to age-old recipes can be enjoyed at the extensive Sri Lankan section.

The restaurant’s two semi-private dining rooms, feature a private bar and beverage station stocked with worldly spirits and local favourites providing the ideal space for an intimate celebration or business meeting.

Central café is a treat for the eyes and palate alike, with elegant floral décor filling the room, and delicious sweet and savoury offerings. The café also connects Shangri-La Hotel, Colombo to One Galle Face Mall allowing diners to move through one another with ease.
