London’s ‘best’ Sri Lankan restaurant opens new branch after people travel from abroad for curry

An award-winning Sri Lankan restaurant has just opened a new branch in South London. The popular Colombo Kitchen opened their second venue on May 16, this time in Putney.

Located at 240 Upper Richmond Road, the family-run establishment serves traditional dishes and exotic cocktails. After the success of the Worcester Park site, owner and head chef Sylvia Perera is now ready to share her authentic Sri Lankan recipes with the people of South-West London.

She said: “I was honoured when people told me they had travelled from all across London and even from abroad just to taste the food I grew up eating. That’s why I’m so excited to open this second location and share my heritage with even more people.”

While Sri Lankan cuisine has become increasingly trendy in London, Colombo Kitchen stands out for its hopper and kotthu bar concept, where traditional street food is prepared right under guests’ noses. The restaurant recently won Best Sri Lankan Restaurant at the prestigious Asian Restaurant and Takeaway Awards.

It has a 4.5-star rating from over 100 reviews on TripAdvisor. “My partner and I try to visit Colombo Kitchen as often as possible as it’s a fantastic dining experience – it’s a gem of a restaurant and the food is mouth-wateringly delicious and spicy,” commented a user.

The venue has particularly been praised for its egg hoppers, a popular breakfast dish in Sri Lanka. Both the mutton curry and the Negombo king prawn curry seem to also be a hit with visitors.

Colombo Kitchen is located at 25-27 Central Rd, Worcester Park KT4 8EG and at 240 Upper Richmond Rd, Greater, London SW15 6TG.
