Chinese Dragon Cafe Colombo, Sri Lanka

A restaurant that has set the best standard in Chinese food, Chinese Dragon Cafe is one of the best places to dine in Colombo, Sri Lanka. Started in 1942, Chinese Dragon Cafe is one of the oldest and most respected Chinese restaurants in Colombo. A family of Chinese immigrants to Sri Lanka are behind this half-century old restaurant so you can be sure they serve the best of Chinese cuisine in Colombo. They offer authentic Chinese food specifically to suit your palate. Authentic dishes are still prepared just as they were when they opened up over a half a century ago.

Their authentic Chinese food dishes such as Foo Yung Hai, Penang Beef Curry and Fish Pomfret are perfected to make sure you enjoy your meal to the fullest. There are also other popular trademark dishes by them. Some dishes that I have tried and enjoyed are:

  • Hot Butter Cuttlefish
  • Crab Claws
  • Spare Ribs in Hot n’ Sour Sauce
  • Hot Garlic Prawns
  • Hot Butter Mushrooms
  • Special Seafood Rice in Banana Leaf

Whether you want to dine in, take out or cater some of these scrumptious dishes to your friends, office parties, birthdays, cocktail parties or family gatherings, Chinese Dragon Cafe will make it happen to your satisfaction. Their prices are affordable compared to many Chinese restaurants in and around Colombo. Their service is very friendly too. Usually they have a server for each table so you can expect a great service while dining in at the restaurant.

They also makes it easier for people overseas to shop for their loved ones in Sri Lanka. Overseas customers can send a Chinese Dragon Cafe meal to their friends and family in Colombo simply by placing an order online through their website

    I ordered lunch today to be delivered to Battaramulla for a friend and myself. We waited for 2 hours and 45 minutes and it never arrived, so we went to Water’s Edge. So much for good online ordering service. Very unhappy.

      Hi Valerie, thanks for sharing this with us, and sorry to hear about the disappointing service from Chinese Dragon Cafe. The delay with the service might have been due to Sri Lankan New Year falling on the 12th and 13th. This sure is a very busy time in and around Colombo. However, I know that is not an excuse for your order being late. Please feel free to address your concerns by phoning them directly or on their Facebook fan page ( Hope you enjoyed your lunch at Waters Edge :)
