The Kingsbury Colombo - Food, drink and entertainment The Ocean Seafood Restaurant
A few thousand leagues under the sea, many thousand leagues above everything else. A delight for both the ancient mariner and the seafood gourmet, The Ocean Seafood Restaurant is like nothing you've encountered yet.
The Kingsbury Colombo - Food, drink and entertainment Harbour Court - Restaurant
This restaurant is the global cuisine restaurant at The Kingsbury. Or as we'd like to call it, food from the Universe. Discover just how many essences and aromas there are to experience.
The Kingsbury Colombo - Food, drink and entertainment Yue Chuan - Restaurant
While at The Kingsbury, with its European accent, its oceanic location, its exotic tropicality and island warmth, do step across the Great Wall for a bit. Yue Chuan serves a selection of Cantonese and Szechuan specialities, in an exotic chic dining environment.
The Kingsbury Colombo - Food, drink and entertainment Pool Cafe
Outdoor, casual and wonderfully atmospheric. That is the promise of the Pool Caf, set by the hotel's magnificent outdoor pool.
The Kingsbury Colombo - Food, drink and entertainment The Score - Al Fresco Bar
The sports bar aptly named "The Score" is Colombo city's only Al Fresco bar which allows patrons to indulge in an atmospheric outdoor setting. The bar is located on the beautiful al fresco deck that overlooks the picturesque Indian Ocean - a popular venue amongst Sri Lankans and expatriates alike to immerse themselves in the beauty of the setting sun. But the view is not the only highlight at "The Score", instead look forward to fantastic mixes, artistic barmenship and cocktails that are cataclysmic.
The Kingsbury Colombo - Food, drink and entertainment The Kings - Lobby Bar
The Kings lobby bar is located on the ground floor and is stylishly interwoven with the hotel's grand lobby.For sheer comfort, for conversations, for the most delicious impromptu nourishment of the pub grub kind, for diverse music and for lounging with or without an agenda, we do believe there a few spots more welcoming than this one.
The Kingsbury Colombo - Food, drink and entertainment Sky Lounge
Sitting atop the royal splendour of The Kingsbury with its stately grandeur, is an unexpected jewel in its crown. The Sky Lounge, Colombos hippest bar. Its post-modern design only complements the eclectic entertainment that is an experience in itself.

Too many staffs idling around. No greetings from them as they usually are found chit chatting among themselves. Breakfast is the same everyday and mostly too salty.
