Sigiriya Restaurant pays homage to the iconic rocky outcrop of Sigiriya (Lion rock).

It is Sri Lanka’s single most dramatic sight, an imposing rock that rises with near vertical walls out of the green scrub jungle of the central plains. Sigiriya is perhaps the most memorable place to visit in the country and our restaurant seeks to celebrate the rich history of this special place by blending Indian and Buddhist traditions through fine food and warm hospitality. This is the Sri Lankan way, come and experience it through us.

The basis for some of our delicious desserts include Curd, treacle, sweet meats, rice flour, palm treacle and jiggery accompanied by a variety of fruits. It is very easy to find several juicy sweetmeats like Kavum, kokis, Halape, Thalaguli and Wattalapam.

Indulge in the rich history of Sigiriya

Sigiriya has been known since ancient times as a settlement for Buddhist monks.

It is a well-planned monastic complex that includes cave temples, bathing pools, lovely ponds and Asia’s oldest surviving landscaped gardens. Today, Sigiriya is famous for its frescoes paintings in the pocket of the rock. The “lion stairway”, the “mirror wall” and the “water gardens” are its other highlights. Sigiriya was declared as a world heritage site by UNESCO in 1982.
