Colombo Social: Lankan Bar & Kitchen

Our menu is designed to celebrate the sharing experience of Sri Lankan cuisine, blending home cooking techniques, recipes straight from Amma’s (Mum’s) cookbook and contemporary Aussie favourites. As Amma always says, nobody should eat alone.
We are open Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings from 5pm & from 12-3 for lunch on Sundays serving your favourite Sri Lankan comfort food.

We want to take a moment to express our gratitude at the overwhelming level of support shown by our customers and friends. With your help we were able to evolve #plateitforward and feed over 39,500 meals to those identified as the most at risk which includes the Elderly Aboriginal community in Redfern, those in social housing in Camperdown, asylum seekers across Sydney and others.
