It is also the aroma of fresh produce that is delivered to your table. The experience we tend to give you at culture Colombo is wholesome. We aim to fulfill all 5 senses of a human through a simple yet tactfully curated experience.

“Walawwa” is the Sinhala term for a mansion or a manor house. It is not the luxurious elegance that we try to bring out but the humble, vintage Sri Lankan interior. It is designed and curated for our customers to reminisce the olden day Sri Lankan household while dining with us. We would also like to call it a combination of colonial (influenced by the beautifully blending in mural wall), modern and Sri Lankan but the beauty of this cultural infusion is that the food sets the tone to it all.
