Welcome To

Colombo Social


Colombo Social combines our love of great food and drinks with our social purpose.

We are a modern Sri Lankan inspired social enterprise restaurant headed up by: Peter Jones-Best with over 15 years of hospitality experience and Shaun Christie-David with a decade long portfolio of empowering vulnerable members of the community.

We aim to provide employment, training and support to asylum seekers and a seriously good feed to our customers.

Colombo Social: Lankan Bar and Kitchen is set to open on the vibrant Enmore Road Strip late November. Our mission is to serve up delicious modern and traditional Sri Lankan cuisine & vibrant cocktails in a funky laid back environment. Traditional Sri Lankan staples such as Kothu Roti, Hoppers, Sambols and Curries will be served side by side with tantalising modern fusion share plates such as Sri Lankan Prawn Saganaki and Soft Shell Crab Roti Tacos. The beverage list will feature an eclectic signature cocktail list, local craft and imported Sri Lankan beer and hand selected wine that perfectly compliments the spice and flavours featured throughout our menu.

This summer we have partnered with our friends at the Asylum Seekers Centre Newtown, to bring you “Plate It Forward” – allowing you to give back. For every guest who enjoys an Amma’s Table Banquet Menu we will donate a meal to an Asylum Seeker in need. For more details or to book your next function contact us today.
