staff was very friendly and the food selection was off the charts. However i think they have over done the salad bar. I would spend more time on quality than quantitiy. Breads were really fresh. The main items were excellent. I've been here for breakfast too. Those few times were

Hello, what is the average costs for 2 persons at your Japanese restaurant? Say set menu (Tapanyaki) plus Sake/beer.
It will be around 10,000 LKR. I guess

Hi - How far is the city centre from this place. I understand the Colombo is good for shopping. Are there any good shopping centres nearby? How far is the beach. How is the weather these days?
Hi there is no beach side area in Colombo City. Nothing where you can typically go the the beach. There are a few hotels with a bit of beach, like the Galle Face Hotel, but it's literally a corner. Mount Lavinia Hotel also does, but Colombo is more of the city feel. If you're staying at The Kingsbury you will be near to the Old Dutch Hospital Shopping complex which is ok for shopping but not great. They have a few interesting shops like Barefoot and LuvSL for Sri Lankan items and restaurants. The Odel Department Store is one of the best places for shopping in Colombo. Also the Independence Arcade Mall. If you google those two you'll get an idea. They have international and local brands. Other nice shops are scattered over the city with a few malls that are pathetic. To be honest, Sri Lanka is no great shopping experience like Thailand and Malaysia. But within the island the above is where you can shop and also Galle Fort in Galle (South). Hope this helps!
