A Bit of History
Sri Lanka, once known as Ceylon by the British or Taprobane by the ancient Greeks, has a history that dates back to 500 BC. Fondly called the Pearl of the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka was visited and inhabited by people from many cultures over the centuries. The Dutch, Portuguese, English, Arabs, Malays, and Indians all left their mark on Sri Lanka’s indigenous society, and nowhere is that influence more evident than in our food. Making liberal use of local fruits, vegetables, and an arsenal of spices that is second to none, Sri Lankan cuisine offers an abundance of incredible dishes that are unlike anything you’ve tasted before.
Despite being one of the most vibrant cuisines in the world, Sri Lankan food is still relatively undiscovered. At Price of Ceylon, our aim is to change that by offering customers an authentic culinary experience, home-cooked in our traditional style but served in a modern setting. While we take pride in our homegrown spices, traditional recipes, and time-tested cooking methods, we believe that our most powerful secret ingredient is the love that goes into everything we do. It is this touch of love that makes all the difference when it comes to finding the perfect harmony between taste, ambiance, and service.
